Microsoft Xbox One is the most popular gaming device in the world, at the moment. Back at the beginning of summer, we reported on the fact that the new Mortal Kombat X is hitting the market in 2015 and now we’ve got some more exciting news for Xbox fans: Microsoft has finally launched Xbox One in China!
China places a video gaming console ban in the year 2000. Microsoft launched their original Xbox in 2001, which means that China hasn’t been able to enjoy the device until now. It lifted the ban and now Microsoft has launched the Xbox One in China, after the device was officially launched in the U.S. in November of 2013.
The Xbox One in China will be available in 37 cities and 4,000 retail locations. It doesn’t seem like too much, considering that there are 160 cities in China that have more than 1 million inhabitants, but we’re hoping that following the predicted success, more locations and cities will be added to the list of places you can buy in Xbox One in China.
Microsoft held the Xbox One launch party in Shanghai, at the Oriental Pearl Tower. It was supposed to launch the device last week, but delayed the launch for today, for unknown reasons.
Some rumors are hinting at the fact that Chinese gamers who have already preordered the Xbox One in China are going to get an added bonus, but nothing is known about the type of bonus Microsoft is going to offer. They should be given something, because they’ve been waiting long enough for the Xbox One video gaming console.
