Sony has delayed plans to launch the Playstation 4 console in China due to "various factors".

The PS4 was set for launch in China on 11 January, but Sony has delayed the launch and has not yet set a new launch date.

Microsoft launched its rival Xbox One console four months ago after making the breakthrough into the country.

Last year China announced that it would end its ban on foreign games consoles. Both Sony and Microsoft were keen to jump at the opportunity to enter one of the biggest markets in the world. But doing so has been difficult, with both firms being forced to make changes to the consoles to allow Chinese authorities to censor them.
