Earlier this week Microsoft announced that they would be delaying the Xbox One China launch of their new next-generation games console and would hopefully making the console available in China before the end of the year.
Now Microsoft has today announced that it will be launching its new console throughout China later this month on September 29th 2014, only 5 days later than it previously announced.
Microsoft late last week explained : “despite strong and steady progress, we are going to need more a bit more time to deliver the best experiences possible for our fans in China.”- “At Xbox, we pride ourselves on delivering first rate gaming and entertainment experiences and to allow us to deliver on that promise we need to reschedule the launch of Xbox One,”-“Working with our partner, BesTV, we look forward to launching in China by the end of this year.”
Microsoft is making 5 million units of its Xbox One console available for the launch in China now confirmed for later this month. However if the launch goes as well as it did in Japan, or rather didn’t, Microsoft can expect to have plenty of stock left over for distribution elsewhere in the world.
Only time will tell, when sales figures have been announced by Microsoft, however the company has been keeping quiet as to just how many Xbox One consoles have been sold worldwide. However during the recent Bungie Destiny launch it could be calculated that the PlayStation 4 is still leading the console wars at the current time.
