Chinese swimming hero, Sun Yang won two gold medals at the recent London Olympics this year. Despite getting a free pair of customized Beats By Dre, Sun seemed to still lack a video game system.
The above picture, dated July 31, 2012, is just making the media circles in China right now. It shows Sun standing over an original PlayStation 3 in what looks like an electronics gray market. The market is unknown, but the fact is, this is a common sight in China. I don't mean celebrities buying gaming consoles, I mean Chinese people in general heading to shady underground electronics markets to buy video game consoles. According to Chinese gossip blogs, Sun and many of his Olympic teammates are gamers.
