Microsoft Xbox One to launch in China Sept 23
Sony goes into the video game industry’s biggest annual trade show with an edge, its PS4 having trumped Xbox One in sales since the competing consoles hit the market in November.

SHANGHAI - Microsoft Corp will launch its Xbox One gaming console in China on September 23, Yusuf Mehdi, head of marketing and strategy for Microsoft's Xbox group said at an event in Shanghai on Wednesday.

The Xbox One will be the first foreign-made console to be launched in China in 14 years after the government this year lifted a 2000 ban on gaming consoles.

Microsoft is forging ahead with the console launch despite Tuesday's government announcement that the US software giant is the subject of an anti-monopoly investigation.
