The Xbox One will launch in China in September


10:00 AM on 04.30.2014



Microsoft has just announced a partnership with BesTV, stating that it will bring the Xbox One to China in September. Marked as a "monumental day for Xbox," apparently this is the first step in the partnership between MS and BesTV.

Microsoft notes that half a billion people in China game, which equates to roughly one third of their population, and more than the entire population of North America -- it generated $13 billion in 2013 alone. That's pretty much all there is to it. I'm more interested in seeing where this goes than the announcement itself.

Guild Wars 2's first year sales, before the Chinese launch, were at 3.5 million, so total sales are at least over 7 million.  Not bad, not bad.  [Via NeoGAF]more
