After hosting a Fanfest in Taipei, Taiwan, Microsoft moved to Hong Kong, hosting another to celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of Xbox One in the country, that will be on September 23rd.
Cool , very nice
Agreed, nice indeed. MS have been keeping to their word and impressing us all. Keep it up! I look forward to all our nice titles that will be releasing all the way through to Christmas. Love it!
I think it was the same at the other event but... why is the ceiling so low? It makes me claustrophobic, and I'm not even there.
Did you ever consider that the ceiling is normal height, asians are just notoriously tall people.
Apart from the fact that in Asia, especially HK, Japan and etc space is premium. Think New York premium. Some super rich dude came up with the convertible apart that would go from kitchen to living room to bed room in one space!
Lol. Thats crazy. I remember when i was in korea. I hooked up with this chick and her toilet was in her shower next to the washing machine.... blew my mind lol.
Full marks for effort!
Im not surprised by the interest in this event, I would have thought China would be one of the few places Xbox consistently outsells PS4...for obvious reasons. I'm sure MS know this and make a big push for market share in this region. I guess opinions on Sony would be better in HK though.
In China, PS4:X1 = 3:1. MS needs to do something special to win some gamers.
Which obvious reasons? Not like China, as a whole, has any love for either Japan or America. The general populace doesn't have any particular hatred for Japan. There are hostilities on the political front, and some of the older crowd may still harbor some animosity, but neither of these make up the majority of the market that these consoles will be targeted towards. That market, by the way, is buying the PS4 at a much faster rate.
"Hostilities on the political front"...or hundreds of years of mistreatment and a general Japanese opinion the Chinese are a lower life form. Speaking to the Chinese people I have met on my travels they have a much greater dislike of the Japanese. I'm no expert (like you must be) and am only going by what I have learned from others. It sounds like you took personal offence to somebody thinking the Xbox could do well in a region...strange behavior. And btw, I own a PS4 and have never owned an Xbox. This decision is based on my mates playing on PS and I prefer Sony exclusives - no fanboyism here.
I think if they would of held a presser at ChinaJoy they would of made a bigger splash, but its good to see them paying attention to that region.
This is China not japan they not loyal fanatics like a lot Japanese people of course it not a shocker 2 a crowd this big at a MS booth.
Right...I was taking into account the historical relationship between China and Japan. I'm guessing history isn't a strong point so i'd just Google it mate.
Wish MS would hold a fanfest in my country.
As much as people want to hate on MS you have to give them credit for not giving up. People wrote MS off years ahi and said that they would end up like the Dream Cast but MS is still here and stronger than ever.
Looks like there are some gamers in Asia who like the XB1 after all. I'm sure they are all waiting patiently for Scalebound to be released. Nice turnout.
