Xbox One shifts 100k units in China on Day 1

xbox one sales china

The Xbox One has shifted 100k units in China on Day 1 according to vice president of SMG, Mr. Zhang. This figure was revealed in a Chinese forum A9VG and it isn’t sure yet whether it is shipped or sold (most likely shipped). Either way it is highly impressive and is thrice the amount of Xbox One consoles shipped in Japan on day 1.

While the Xbox One isn’t doing too well in Japan, rising markets like China have a huge potential because of rapidly increasing purchasing power and consoles being an entertainment device as well helps a lot.

We will keep you updated once we hear more on this. We also saw massive lines of buyers waiting for the Xbox One so reaching 100k units on day 1 doesn’t look like an impossible task.

Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

Thanks, A9VG.

    Good launch. Though it is China’s first official gaming console.

    • andy

      You have to love it too. China’s first official gaming console and its the worse revealed console in history AND, in China, it features most of the problems from that very reveal. :D

      • avi

        what problems?
        you mean the ones that the Chinese government forced Microsoft to follow?

      • Pakkunn

        Pull up your pants, your Sony branded underwear are showing.

    • rodbox

      No. PS2 is in China for years.

      • Bliss Seeker

        Was it…official??

  • Thrusled388

    nsole in history AND, in China, it features most of the problems from that very reveal. :D

  • Brian

    good launch, great console….congrats MS.

    • Dave

      Wow, great fightback form Microsoft – but the PS4 is still selling incredibly well all around the world. Think when PS4 starts selling in China, it will do very well.

      • rodbox

        Sure PS4 will catch all xbox one in China, day one. quote it. PS2 rules in China.

        • slasaru

          Ps2 rules because of piracy

          • ADevilNeverCry .

            The fuck kid? it’s WAY easier to hack an xbox 360/original xbox than a PS2, by that logic both consoles would have sold more units than the PS2 in china.

          • Failz

            No it isn’t lol PS2 and PS1 were the most easily hacked consoles on the planet. Even I brought those consoles for the Chip.

          • XanderZane41

            He’s right. The PS1 and PS2 were both hacked before the XBox and Xbox 360. They got hacked just a few months after launching.

        • XanderZane41

          Don’t know. Chinese are to fond of Japan or Japanese products. We’ll see. They might boycott it.

          • dem_derp

            Consoles were already readily available in China on the grey market.

            Surveys show more Chinese consumer interest in PS, PS has traditionally sold more on the Chinese grey market, PS has more brands and genres more popular in China like Gundam and RPGs, etc. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China like every other country on the planet.

            It’s well known that PS is a more popular brand in China than Xbox, so PS4 outselling Xbox in China 2-4:1 would not be unusual.

      • Brian

        we will see what happens…CONGRATS MS!!

            hey, its the copy and paste dude..i see your still babbling a bunch of stuff no one cares about…BYE!

      • Brian

        CONGRATS TO MS!!!!!!

      • Failz

        Imagine when the XB1 is sold all around the world.

        • You are flat out wrong

          200,000 tier 2 launch total is looking likely. So to imagine that: no, nothing will change.

        • dem_derp

          As expected by anyone knowledgeable and sane, tier 2 launches are doing almost nothing for Xbox sales. Including the rest of the tier 2 launches on Sept 23. PS4 will still be outselling Xbox 2:1 by the end of 2014.

          PS4 will easily outsell Xbox globally in Sept 2014, and every month in 2014. Xbox might take a few NPDs in the USA but globally no chance.

          2014 YTD sales:
          Wii U: 1.9m
          Xbox: 2.7m
          PS4: 7m

          Xbox is struggling to stay ahead of the Wii U this year, PS4 is miles ahead of both. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China and the Asian region like every other country on the planet.

          XB1 will sell less than 360 long term. Shrinking console market + PS4 eating up Xbox marketshare = less sales. Simple and obvious to anyone paying attention. 360 is on track to outsell XB1 time adjusted sometime in 2015.

          Xbox Tier 2 launches overall this month did almost nothing for Xbox sales, like anyone sane could have predicted months ago. Despite the constant fanboy excuses about ‘PS4 is selling in more markets’. Well Xbox is in more markets now and PS4 is still outselling it 2:1 or more globally.

          Consoles were already readily available in China on the grey market.

          Surveys show more Chinese consumer interest in PS, PS has traditionally sold more on the Chinese grey market, PS has more brands and genres more popular in China like Gundam and RPGs, etc. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China like every other country on the planet.

  • Spencer

    That’s pretty solid for a launch. Let’s see how the coming weeks pan out, that will tell the real story.

  • Tga215

    Well that’s good news hopefully it’s sold not shipped the xbox one came along way from a year ago

  • goken

    I have little doubt it is 100k sold to customers. I was at a sunning electronic store at the edge of central Beijing, they were sold out of x1s. High probability that the situation is similar in most stores.
    But i am curious why anyone would get the official Chinese console since it is more expensive and with mostly family friendly games available. Would it not be better to get a hong kong or Taiwan unit? Lower price n larger library

  • Convergence87

    The only reason people are buying the xbone because of the massive ban of consoles etc only recently being lifted.

    • XanderZane41

      Keep those tears flowing.

    Big whoop, looking for positivity anywhere they can find it, guess they had to scrape the bottom of the barrel, LOL.

  • brianc6234

    That’s nothing in China.

  • Mike

    What happened to selling 5 million right away?! I remember some fanboys saying it would. Funny stuff. The hacking should be quite awesome though

    • dem_derp

      Xbox is barely over 5 million total sales. Anyone thinking Xbox would sell 5 million in china at launch is beyond delusional.

  • Bliss Seeker

    I’m gonna be honest with y’all. Right now XBOX fanboys (not necessarily here) are like a person who cannot swim and has just be thrown into the deep end of a pool. They are reaching for anything which will keep their head above the water; but there is nothing but air.
    Think about it.

    • James Anthony

      See that is what keeps the hate going. Dont be a sheep! What I mean by this is buy what you want,dont let the internet tell you what to spend your money on. Be a wolf think for yourself .

      • Guest

        $0N¥ paupers are all low IQ sheep. They’re even dumber than crApple tards. They are the losers of current civilization spreading their crap from their pauperbases like N4G and NeoFAG.

        • Bliss Seeker

          STFU

        • dem_derp

          Stop spreading fanboy lies, hatred, and FUD, it accomplishes nothing. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. It’s sad that you hate good video games for being on the wrong piece of plastic.

          All of your lies, ignorance, and blind hatred only make you seem deranged and delusional to normal, sane people. Get help.

      • Bliss Seeker

        I’m not a sheep, I assure you. Infact I based my decision off of my own research and decided to get a PS4. Took some time to finally decide but in the end I know I made the right choice.

    • dem_derp

      They’ve been mind fucked by widespread consumer rejection of Xbox. Clinging to “it’s still outselling 360!” despite being on track to move under 360 sales sometime in 2015. They’re running out of straws to grasp at.

  • James Anthony

    And look at all the butt hurt fanboys out there. Wow just not enough AAA titles on your console that you have to troll for entertainment? It’s all good I hail both consoles.But only thing you never hear XBox fans threatening to rape or beat someone down over a game.Thank all you Xbox fans for being mature. I will get alot of hate for this But Thank you Sony fans that did not follow these threats horns up to all gamers around the world. ,,/

    • William Downie

      Sony fans threatened to rape and murder the Lara Croft voice actor and make threats daily against devs who are releasing AAA exclusive games on Xbox cough cough Insomniac Games Sunset Overdrive so what the hell are you on about kid???

      • James Anthony

        You guys see what just happen there? Lol Just said thanks to Sony fans and still you will get trolled.Poor reading skills maybe lol. In my 33 year living I have nerve seen it this bad! Just to let you know Will, I have both consoles and I think it lame that people have to troll a website to feel good. Its nerdy

  • pooooooo

    Roughly over a billion people in China and you “shift” 100k units. Percentages say you did bad

    • dem_derp

      Market size not necessarily related to population.

  • You are flat out wrong

    Looks like my prediction of 200,000 tier 2 launch was solid. What a flop.

  • Failz

    And yet why do gamers care how well consoles sell. Does the XB1 selling in China make your games better? Does the PS4 selling better in Egypt make your games better? LOL no it doesn’t. Much like iPhone, the best seller is based off marketing and hype. The better products usually sell less.

    • Guest

      It’s $0N¥ PauperStation desperation at its finest.

      • dem_derp

        PS isn’t desperate with its over 2:1 global sales lead. Sick, lying, deranged fanboy waste.

    • dem_derp

      PS4 is selling on price/performance, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, improved PSN since the PS3 days, and PS+ value. It’s seen as the best console for multiplatform games.

      It’s going to keep selling on that.

    The console war isn’t over yet. With the PS4, it’s mostly talk from Sony.

    • dem_derp

      PS4 is keeping its 1st place in global sales. Anyone with a clue knows this already.

      PS4 is selling on price/performance, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, improved PSN since the PS3 days, and PS+ value. It’s seen as the best console for multiplatform games.

      It’s going to keep selling on that.

  • Adub20

    Its sad that even when xbox is doing good, the sony pony pussy police patrol always try to bash and downplay them. If theyre selling then why is it a big fucking deal? Who the fuck are any of you faggots to criticize anyone on their choice of console? All you sony fanboys do is talk about sells but what percentage of that 10 million are any of yall getting….. exactly and I find it funny that yall get uppity when xbox does anything but when sony does bullshit then it seems to be no big deal at all… Bunch of pathetic fucking hypocrites. and if sony is so great then how the fuck did yall manage to lose 2.1 billions dollars? So it seems like your so called 10 million was negated dumbasses

    • dem_derp

      It’s not “doing good”.

      Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

    100K sold to consumers. They had over 120K preorders, so it’s pretty obvious.
