The Xbox One has struggled throughout Asia, where the Sony PlayStation series of game consoles remain popular. However, lower pricing and a stronger marketing push has drawn attention from gamers - where Microsoft partnered with the BesTV New Media Internet TV set-top box.

 

The game consoles will be available starting in China Telecom stores starting this September, with an estimated $80 million investment from BesTV and Microsoft to help move the project along.
