Microsoft has sent out invites to the media for an event on January 23 where the company is expected to launch the Xbox One X in India. The high-end console made its debut back in November featuring a 2.3 GHz octa-core CPU and a Radeon GPU with 40 compute units that can hit six teraflops. The end result is native 4K gaming on a console that's touted to be the most powerful in the world.
All of that performance comes at a price, with the Xbox One X estimated to retail for ₹44,990 in the country, which comes out to $700. That's a $200 markup from what the console retails for in the U.S..
On top of that, you're going to need a decent 4K TV to fully utilize the potential of the Xbox One X, which when combined with the cost of the console can lead to a pretty sizeable investment. In fact, you can build a decent gaming PC for the equivalent of ₹44,990, but if you don't want to go through the hassle of assembling your own machine or are looking for a console that can handle 4K gaming and HDR, there isn't a better option available today.
I'll share more details on availability next week. In the meantime, who's interested in picking one up?
