Microsoft launches Xbox One in China but faces struggle to get major games approved
Microsoft has now launched the Xbox One in China, as it becomes the first Western game console to be sold legally in that country in 14 years.
While the Chinese government may have lifted the ban on game consoles sales, Bloomberg reports that the country will have to approve every Xbox One game for sale. Indeed, just 10 games are available for the Xbox One's Chinese launch, and most of them don't have a lot of violent content. Microsoft says it is working to bring 70 more games to the Xbox One Chinese audience, including titles in the Halo and Killer Instinct franchise that definitely have violent visuals.
WPDang reports that Microsoft is selling a limited edition "China Day One" version of the Xbox One that includes the Kinect sensor along with several free games, including Kinect Sports Rivals, Forza Motorsport 5, Powerstar Golf and Neverwinter Online. Do you think Microsoft will be successful with the Xbox One in China?

The Chinese are single-handedly decimating some of the most beautiful creatures on earth - and they are doing so under the cover of diplomatic immunity amongst other things!
Damn the Western culture of violence where no one has been beheaded for over a century (even though God knows a lot of politicians in Brussels deserved it).
And the fun fact is : Democracy for over a billion people spread everywhere across the country and for the growing industry wont work . Never worked in china. They are kind of happy with communism. Sure there are lot of stupid decisions made by the government but it still works out. And somehow everything is controlled and working .
Not talking about all the other shit - crime and corruption are no products of the government;)
No game no life for me...
The USA is also the only Western country were people and government stand by an interpretation of the 2nd amendment that allows citizens to hold arsenals in their homes, where people are so stupid that they allow that children can learn how to handle weapons and worst of all, people can but weapons along with their morning coffee and newspaper. This is not freedom. This is insanity.
