Xbox One may have already sold over 100K units in China!

The source for the post is a, what appears to be, Chinese gaming forum of some type.  I saw this linked on Twitter and it says that the Xbox One has already sold over 100K units in China.  If this is true that would be huge news for the console and shows that the Chinese market could do very well for Microsoft.

I think I share the sentiment of many other people when I say that this is great news if it is true.  The other really interesting part of this small bit of translated text is at the end of the section I put in bold where it says that Zhang Zhong they have a 1 year sales target of more than 1 million consoles in China.  Eventually Sony is going to make its way into China as well and we will see what happens, but 1 million Xbox One additional Xbox One consoles is a good thing no matter which way you cut it.

It is reassuring to see that there are places outside of the USA and Europe where the Xbox One can do well!  Congratulations Microsoft!

Below is the raw translated text.


Chinese version of the Xbox One game at the September 29 officially on sale, starting has reached 100,000 units. Zhang Zhong, vice president of SMG accepted September 30 "Xinmin Evening News" interview, said it expected within five years, China Games output will reach over 100 billion size, and 10 years, the entire industry will have a super- trillion potential. According A9VG news that one-year sales target of Xbox One of the more than 1 million.

"Da Zhong, Shanghai Media & Entertainment Group Limited, Vice President, Shanghai Information Technology Development Co., hundreds of co-chairman as Shanghai Free Trade Zone No. 001 experimental enterprises settled in the" Master ", he said to get a business license The first second was "excited" and the second is the second so far are all "responsibility."
  to allow domestic players awaited Xbox One country thousands of units starting line edition yesterday, after an absence of 14 years of game consoles by Shanghai FTA test area The wind finally back. got the "001 number" hundreds of business licenses together, not only the first settled FTA "Benchmarking Enterprise", is the host game field, "eat crabs." Innovation often face more difficult, but entered the "FTA era" in the second year, Zhang Zhong still adhere to the "dared stride", a pioneer of reform in constant "exploration", the opening of the new benchmark.
  problem solving process is Innovation
  "China (Shanghai) free trade liberalization measures to expand the test area services" in the lifting of the ban on the game's only one sentence: "Allow foreign companies engaged in the production and sale of gaming entertainment devices, content review by the administrative department of culture of gaming entertainment devices can for the domestic market. "From a word starting to Xbox One version of the National Bank officially on sale, we have to solve a lot of problems. Fortunately, related industry management department with us through thick and thin, solve problems together, and this process is In the "innovation."
  When we do not look at this little game, there are many stories behind the line version .Xbox One country was able to sell a bare metal comes with the game? had never been clear, we depart from the market point of view, hope to add "content" sold together, but the machine's production, testing and other 3C link is public letter to departmental management, marketing, and content approval is the cultural sector tube under bull management, as a business we do not know, machines and Content can "mix and match" Sales? Who can come finalized? Finally, in order to allow consumers to have a better experience, Shanghai Media Bureau under the "negative list" to promote the Shanghai Municipal Government issued the Implementing Rules, clear the "mix and match" feasible, to help us solve the first big problem.
  , I think after the establishment of the FTA, the biggest change is the government department from "passive regulation" into "active service", it will stand in the market point of view the problem in order to facilitate business, rather than to hold your thinking. If the past businesses on board, government departments on the shore, so now everyone is in the same boat, while for the entire industry, one hundred together in a free trade zone to solve a problem, will form the future of new norms and institutions, while other companies to follow up, do not dark boating, because the sea have the "Lighthouse."
  But this year, I personally have not dealt with each department, because many things are open and transparent, to something done what is necessary to achieve the standard, very clear. lack of clarity, no previous processes, we apply also had to respond immediately. the year, I've only been twice FTA. once the listing ceremony September 29, 2013, and another one is coming after Premier Li Keqiang held FTA business forum.
  once lifted drive around the industry
  when it comes to this forum, I am honored as the first speaking on behalf of a business, I mentioned that in his speech of the "five unexpected", which has two "unexpected" is the "think small game can bring billions of value", "think so quickly be copied."
  Since hundreds of co-host the game entered the field, from the aspects of the machine, content, applications, manufacturers have to follow up. Xbox One state line version of 10 games, there are two domestic game companies are making, we have made ​​the game in the butt to debug than 10, to discuss cooperation with the domestic game makers also have more than 10, I believe the future of domestic Games will be more and more. Because a perfect world, Netease, Tencent and some small and medium sized game production studios are concerned about the console games market. In addition, shortly after the establishment of hundreds together, Sony and the Oriental Pearl also teamed registered gaming companies in the free trade zone. As I understand it, Huawei, ZTE, NINETOWNS several companies consider the production game. In functional applications, Xbox One driving game engine, wearable devices, Versus chair, 3D technology and other peripheral industry development, a lot more will be activated derivatives related industries and businesses to develop.
  We expect that within five years, the direct output of console games market in China will reach over 100 billion size; over the next 10 years, the whole industry chain will have had the potential trillion. China will become a very promising world's largest manufacturer of home consoles and content operators. All this took place in Shanghai FTA test area, is a far-reaching impact of paper brought after the ban was lifted.
  Can further explore the "filing system"
  runs an annual trade zone, the long road of reform, opening up and arduous tasks. I look forward to next year for more departments to introduce the FTA more "negative list" to achieve further decentralization proposed by Premier Li Keqiang, support innovation, enterprise, for our culture, whether in the free trade zone further explore the "filing system", one hundred combined enterprise applications, such as the first step of further "pilot."
  Personally, I think: the core is the institutional innovation FTA test area. Government let go, let companies daring break, bold try, strode forward, even if the fall that can throw a long memory. Only let companies continue to "trial and error" and "self-innovation", 100 co-Premier Li Keqiang to really complete the FTA Message to "001 Enterprises" and "good benchmark to play lead." "
