Almost three months since the Xbox One X went on sale in the US, Europe and few other markets, Microsoft is now bringing the high-end console to India for a price of ₹44,990.
Xbox launches have been pretty late in the country until now, and Microsoft seems to have acknowledged the demand for the console this time around. The company's Consumer & Devices Sales Manager, Priyadarshi Mohapatra commented that,
We are delighted to offer gamers the world’s most powerful console with access to the largest and most diverse games lineup in Xbox history, including Forza Motorsport 7, Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Cuphead and Super Lucky’s Tale, out of more than 1,300 titles and more than 220 exclusives available on the Xbox One X, just a few short months after the device’s global launch. We’ve listened to our community and are excited to be bringing this new console to Indian gamers
The Xbox One X features 4K resolution gaming and High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities in addition to the powerful underlying hardware consisting of eight custom x86 cores, 12 GB of DDR5 RAM, a custom-built GPU and 1 TB of storage.
Microsoft will be selling the console online through Amazon, Flipkart and its own online store. Offline sales will be handled by Landmark, Croma and other gaming stores in the country. The suggested retail price of the Xbox One X is ₹44,990 ($705), which could vary based on taxes and offers.
