With Chinese officials raiding Microsoft offices in China, I wonder how long they will be able to sell consoles at all there.

It also makes me wonder if Sony will run into similar issues.

The crazy thing is, there is demand for these consoles from the Chinese people. I've seen first hand people from China that come to visit the US go out of their way to buy a new console or other high end electronics because they are simply non-existent at home. So I feel like the people want these products, if their government would just get out of the way.
