Website shows unconfirmed pricing for the Chinese version of the Xbox One

Recently it was announced that many more markets would be receiving the Xbox One in the coming months; namely Japan, Russia and China. The pricing for all of the new markets has yet to be confirmed, however the price for China recently appeared in an image that was posted on the Chinese website Xbox-Skyer.

The above image lists the Xbox One with Kinect bundle to be priced at 3,599 yuan, which is $578.02. However, according to the user emlong on Live Sino, the price of the Xbox One without the Kinect will be 2,899 yuan, and that comes to about $465.60. These steeper prices could be due to certain restrictions or modifications made by Microsoft that the Chinese government could be enforcing, although neither these speculations, nor the pricing has been confirmed by Microsoft.

It's great news that Microsoft's flagship console will be available to more people in new markets by September, which should help the situation where the Xbox One is trailing behind the PlayStation 4 since its release. This will mean increased revenue, as well as popularity, but it’s not all about money, of course. Millions of gamers will soon be able to play acclaimed Xbox One titles, such as “Forza,” “Titanfall as well as upcoming titles like "Halo 5: Guardians" and "Quantum Break."

the title "chinese version of Xbox One" carries a different connotation altogether as compared to possibly "pricing of Xbox One in China"?

That advert is a bit... naff... The English text says XBox One, but the picture is of a 360...

Either the advertiser is a fricking moron, or that's faked.

Seriously? Flagship console?

360 is now what? 8 years old? Xbox one is this Gen console, only one for MS in that matter. You can't just go around and call everything a flagship.

The article is calling the Xbox One the flagship console (which it is); what are you talking about?

So when you have one product it is automatically a flagship? Compared to what? 360, something that's 8 years old? Cmon.

A top of the line model is a flagship. The XB1 is MS's top of the line games console, ergo, it's their flagship model.

The age of preceding models is irrelevant.

It's their flagship console because it's their newest and most important console. How many times did the mention the 360 at their E3 press conference?

They don't, they have two. The xbox 360, and the xbox one

ah, so you do know they have two consoles...right. Yes, the xbox one is their flagship model because the old one is eight years old, plus the xbox one has vastly superior hardware.

What is confusing you?

:ike: "Everything," :ike: "you`re a flagship"
Your arguing about this? Seriously!

Ahh you ms fabois can whine all you want.

You CAN NOT call something "flagship" that doesn't have another version of the SAME generation out with slightly different hardware.

It's like calling my ZL flasgship compared to an Sony-Ericcson. It's retarded. But...but...age doesn't matter right?

Next time I will call my PS3 a flagship device since, you know, PS2 was before that and it has better hardware.

:-O dude, you are seriously missing the point

PS3 was sonys flagship console until the ps4 got released. Now the ps4 is their flasgship console.

It was the same thing with microsoft, the xbox 360 was their flagship console until the xbox one. I'm not sure what you are struggling with

also, I'm not a fanboy myself as I have recently sold my xbox one in favour of the wii u

Holy god. I'm done taking anything up on this site that includes hardware.
Up to you. Just know that people aren't disagreeing with you because they're fanboys, but because you don't know what flagship means.
