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?
