Xbox One X Gets A Price Hike in India; Now Costs Rs. 48,490
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. Due to an increase in the customs duty from 10% to 20%, the console will retail now at Rs. 48,490. 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.
Specifications for Xbox One X:
The Xbox One X is the most powerful gaming console from Microsoft to date. The device is powered by custom 8-core Jaguar chipset with 12 GB GDDR5 RAM and 1 TB storage. Additionally, the storage is easily swappable with a higher capacity HDD or SSD.
The console also packs in a UHD Blue-ray drive, which can play any standard Blue-ray discs. This is the first Xbox that upscales 1080p to 4K with backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 titles.
It has a library of 1,300 titles with more than 200 titles available only on this platform. To encourage the users, each new console comes with a 14-days Xbox Live Gold trail along with a month of Xbox Game pass subscription.
If you are looking for a Blue-ray player or a Gaming Console, then Xbox One X might be the one. However, if you are on a tight budget, then the Xbox One S is a good choice as well, which retails for Rs. 24,990.
