China Telecom has announced it will be the exclusive carrier for Microsoft's Xbox One when the game console begins its sales in that country sometime in September.

Microsoft confirmed that it would begin selling the Xbox One in China back in April, but today's announcement finally offers concrete information on which retailer in that country will sell the console. It will be the first Western game console to be sold in China in several years, thanks to the government lifting a ban on those products earlier in 2014.

Microsoft has yet to officially announce a specific release date and pricing for the Xbox One in China, but previous rumors claim that it could be sold for around 4999 RMB, or just over $803. There's also been no information on which games will be available for the console, although some rumors claim that many China developed PC online role playing games are being ported to work on the Xbox One. What do you think about the sales prospects for the Xbox One in China?
