Rumor: Xbox breaking into the Chinese market by September 2014

Microsoft has established a joint venture with BesTV, a Chinese IPTV vendor, to work on a Chinese version of its Xbox console. Currently both Microsoft and BesTV are calling it just "Xbox".

"Actually it's vice versa , Chinese hate the people who ruined their country and that's Japan so Sony is the one in danger not Microsoft" All of this is what Pachter Gonna say after days from now , I will believe him if he say so

You might think that way cause of history and some of the news. but in reality japan has a lot of a big influence in Chinese culture vise versa. The Chinese don't hate japan as many people think. It is the pride that make China look like that. It is the older gen that have some grudge, but they are fading out. Chinese don't hate xbox. It was just an expression that I made saying it's not going to sell like hot cakes. China just likes more Asian stuff when it comes to gaming. Besides xbox cable box TV thing is not going to work. if they buy the system, it's going to be games that they are going to play. not watch tv.

Too late for what? Consoles have been banned in China - everything is new and desirable for them whenever they come out.
