Microsoft launched the Xbox One X in India in on January 23rd. At the time of the launch, it was priced at Rs. 44,990. However, it has recently received a price hike.

However, still, a few online retailers have listed the device at an older price tag, which is expected to remain the same until the arrival of the new shipments. Hence, prospective buyers have enough time to buy it before the hike kicks in.
Not only the Xbox One X, even the Sony PS4 Pro now retails at an increased price of Rs. 41,990 instead of Rs. 38,990.
