This week Microsoft delayed the Chinese launch of the Xbox One just a few days before launch, giving the reason as needing some more time to make the experience better for the audience in China. It was a rather vague explanation, though the BBC were reporting that China was investigating Microsoft over anti-trust law issues. Whether that was the reason for the delay is something that Microsoft have not commented on, but even if that investigation is ongoing a new release date has been given.
Microsoft will launch Xbox One in Chinese mainland on Sept. 29, 6 days later than the originally scheduled date.
