The State Council has just announced that China will be lifting its 13-year old video game ban. Video game companies will be able to sell their goods in China once they get the approval from the Ministry of Culture. Microsoft has already announced that they will be investing $237 million dollars in the Shanghai Region of China to develop family orientated games.

There is currently no timeline for the ban lift but it was mentioned that current rules and regulations will be phased out over the next three years.
