While China has a brisk PC gaming business, the country has officially banned video game consoles for many years. Now that the country has lifted that ban, however, Microsoft is planning to step in. The company will begin selling the Xbox One in China this September, which could make it the first mainstream game console to go on sale in the country since the year 2000 — excepting a brief stint by Sonys PlayStation 2.  Microsoft will sell the Xbox One console in partnership with the Chinese company BesTV, in order to comply with Chinas requirement that game consoles be produced in a designated free trade zone in the city of Shanghai. September is also when Microsoft plans to launch the Xbox One in Japan and 25 other countries.
