The launch of the Xbox One may have been slightly delayed in China, but that does not seem to have affected sales of the console, as it is being reported that Microsoft managed to sell 100,000 units on launch day.
The launch day drew in large crowds eagerly looking to pick up the console at most major retailers across the country. The enthusiasm for the console is justified as the Xbox One is the first major console from a Western brand to launch in China in over 14 years. While the console itself has been green lit for sale in the country, Chinese regulators have announced that each game has to be certified before it can go up for sale in the country.
Currently, only 10 games are available for the console, although Microsoft has mentioned that it is working with the authorities in bringing over 70 games to the country soon, which includes its Halo franchise.
Strong sales in China will be a huge boost to Microsoft's overall sales numbers as the software maker looks to bridge the divide with Sony's PlayStation 4.
