Microsoft’s Xbox One to go on sale in China

Bitchen!

Microsoft’s Xbox One is set to become the first foreign games console to go on sale in China, after a 14-year ban on the devices was lifted in January.

Microsoft said yesterday in China that its Xbox One would be available from September, through a partnership with local technology company BesTV New Media, part of Shanghai Media Group. No pricing was disclosed.

The move was made possible by the creation of a new free trade zone in Shanghai last year, the first of its kind in China, which allows local companies with foreign partners to ship products into the country.

China, which had banned the devices due to what it said were concerns about the cultural impact of violent games, retains significant restrictions on the kinds of software that Microsoft, and potentially its rivals Nintendo and Sony, will be allowed sell.

All foreign-created games will be subject to review by the authorities before they can be released.
