In late April, we reported that PlayStation 5 was launching in China on May 15. Today, roughly two weeks later, Microsoft has announced their plans for a Chinese launch of Xbox Series S/X, which will be released on June 10 with pre-orders starting on May 19.
Xbox Series X will be priced 3899 CNY (€499 / £430) which is the same price as PlayStation 5, with Xbox Series S costing 2399 CNY (€307 / £264). Microsoft's marketing director for Xbox greater China, had this to say in a press release:
"We're excited to be able to sync with Chinese gamers into the new generation of games and experience the new generation of games with a high degree of immersion and compatibility. Games are a very creative way to express themselves, to stimulate our imaginations, to connect with each other in a vivid story."
Thanks, Pure Xbox.
