The major names include Call of Duty: Ghosts, Titanfall, etc.. The experts believe that the sales figure of Xbox One in China will be directly in proportion to the games that are being launched. It is not such that China was completely free of gaming consoles during the ban and games like Call of Duty: Ghosts have a huge fan following in China as well. Thus, it will be interesting to see how the people react to Xbox One without the games that can give you an adrenaline rush.
