Microsoft launches Chinese-language Xbox Live site

Xbox Live now has a Chinese-language site, prompting users to learn about Xbox Live and Windows 8 integration. Xbox Live is not available in China, most likely because of the country's ban on external social networking sites, WMPoweruser notes.

The sign up and sign in links on Xbox Live's Simplified Chinese page take users to English pages, transferring them to American servers. It's unclear if this means Microsoft has found a loophole that will allow Xbox Live to function officially in China, but this is a site in the right direction.

DEEJAYstar46 I don't understand why China are banned.

Its part of their culture. As said above, they're not allowed to go on social networking sites from outside the country. They aren't Banned from being on Xbox Live if that's what your thinking, it's just not allowed.
