Microsoft is going to be able to start selling the Xbox One to the more than one billion people living in China starting on September 23. The company announced launch plans at a press event in Shanghai.
Until recently, home consoles have been banned in China, with the PlayStation 2 having the honor of being the last traditional home console to get a release in the country. However, foreign game consoles have been widely available through the country's gray market. Back in 2012, a Chinese motion-sensor equipped home console called the CT510 was actually released, but skirted around the console ban by claiming to be an exercise machine.
