Censorship. Investment. Basketball. The Blizzard of Backlash.

China has made some pretty big impressions of late.

Now, with Chinese Megacorp Tencent's investment into niche gaming favorite PlatinumGames (Bayonetta, Nier Automata), many are sounding alarm bells.

But while such concern could be warranted (eventually), why is it definitely too early to look at the Tencent/Platinum partnership as anything but a win for gamers?

You'll always have a strategic partner...in Virtual Legality.
