China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce Confirms Anti-Monopoly Investigation Against Microsoft

A Chinese regulator confirmed it's conducting an anti-monopoly investigation of Microsoft over its Windows operating system. China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) said it was also investigating a Microsoft vice president and senior managers and had made copies of the company's financial statements and contracts. SAIC said it had obtained documents, e-mails and other data from Microsoft's computers and servers, adding that it could not complete the investigation as Microsoft had said some of its key personnel were not in China. Microsoft has been suspected of violating China's anti-monopoly law since June last year in relation to problems with compatibility, bundling and document authentication.

Microsoft Unveils Xbox in China

Microsoft unveiled its Xbox game console in China, the first to enter the market after an official ban 14 years ago, even as it faces a Chinese government probe over business practices. China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce said it was investigating the Microsoft for "monopoly actions" related to its Windows operating system and Office suite of software. The day after the announcement of the investigation, Microsoft introduced its newest Xbox One model to the potentially vast Chinese market ahead of the official sales launch, which a company representative said would be September 23, 2014. The slick presentation at the Shanghai Film Museum included Xbox games projected onto a big screen on a darkened stage with deafening sound effects for a crowd of 100 journalists and game developers. Xbox signs were prominently displayed but Microsoft's coloured square logo was conspicuously absent. Microsoft said earlier that it seeks to comply with Chinese law. The Xbox One is the first gaming console available for purchase in China through authorised sales channels since 2000. Illegal machines, smuggled into the country, are widely available from online vendors and electronics markets.
