I don't recall the Chinese being a very big Halo community

I don't recall Halo even releasing in China (maybe except for the first two).

I don't recall anything.

Chinese gamers play MMOs and RPGs. First Person Shooters are D.O.A.

He can save USA/UK Xboxes and maybe make some impact on Europe's mainland, but thats as far as he goes.
And yeah, chinese prefer F2P and online games, not to mention, that they wont allow game with shooting to be released there.

That's strange because an online only COD is launching in China.....

Leave it to gamers to not be business savvy. Not to go on a rant but there are some real fools in our community, or at least in these comment sections. Just because a banned product is now available doesn't mean people are going to go crazy for it. The Chinese need to see a benefit to a console vs a PC which they've had for ever now. So for EITHER MS or Sony to make in roads will take years. It's a gaming console not a car advantages of owning one don't show themselves as readily.

I would think the Chinese are more interested in MMO or MOBA games?

I dunno. Does anyone have a handle on what type of games appeal to the chinese audience?
Halo is HUGE in the west, however that does not mean it'll gain much traction in the east.
Just because it's the flagship XBOX game in the US/UK doesn't mean China will give two hoots about it.

So real question should be "Does Halo appeal to the Chinese audience?".
And personally I have no idea, can't say I've ever looked into the gaming tastes of China.
