Bishkek (AKIpress) - xboxone Microsoft says it will start selling its Xbox One video game console in China in September, the AP reported.

Microsoft Corp. says it is launching the system through a partnership with BesTV New Media Co., a subsidiary of Shanghai Media Group.

Video game consoles are technically banned in the country, but Microsoft was able to get around this by working with BesTV, which is part owned by the Chinese government.

Microsoft says the Xbox launch is a "significant milestone" for the company and the industry.
