Well now. 

During Halo Night event on 29th July in Shanghai before Chinajoy, Xbox China announced Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be released on August 13th in China for 249RMB. Chinese edition will have simplified Chinese subtitle, while Chinese voice is not available yet and players can play online game only with local Chinese players.

On 31st of July, Xbox China has just launched a kickstarter project on Chinese online seller JD, to make a China special collector edition of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One.
This Kickstarter project aims to collect 500 thousand yuan in a month, and it has reached 1/10 in the first day.

Lol, kind of a weird move. At least they're not kickstarting the game itself, better a special edition console than the game itself.

I know right? They were practically bankrupt before this!

What is the actual hell...



Seems more like a lottery to me but who am I to stop the fun?



But multibillion dollar companies shouldn't exploit people and crowdfunding platforms like that, take the risk and do it yada yada yada.

It's a special edition in China, I can easily see why you'd like to check demand before printing something like that over there.
