Following the country’s recent lifting of the ban onvideo game consoles, Microsoft may soon be making the Xbox One available in China.

Global Times reported that Microsoft’s global vice president Zhang Yaqin has stated that the company “is stepping up efforts to bring in its multi-purpose Xbox game console to the Chinese market as soon as possible.” Although a date wasn’t given on the launch, Yaqin expects it to arrive “soon.”

The Xbox One would be a major move in the Chinese market, especially considering its impressive sales over the past year with launches in the U.S. and Europe. There’s no word yet as to what games would launch with the console, though. While there’s a vast potential market in China, it’s unclear how well an expensive console will do in that market, especially with many established free-to-play PC games available.
