Microsoft has launched the Xbox One X in India. The console is going up for sale tomorrow, and is currently on pre-order at Flipkart for a hefty ₹44,990 ($700). For that amount, you get 4K gaming with HDR, GPU that can push six teraflops, and a 1TB hard drive. You also get backwards compatibility with Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles, through which you can play older games on your console.
The Xbox One X is a sizeable investment as you'll need a 4K TV to take full advantage of the console, but it's not actually a bad deal all things considered. For context, a comparable gaming rig would cost double that amount (I forgot to factor in the video card in last week's post), with a GTX 1070 alone setting you back ₹49,999. And you do get a pretty decent Blu-Ray player.
From Priyadarshi Mohapatra, Country General Manager for Consumer & Devices Sales at Microsoft India:
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 will be available from Microsoft's online store, Flipkart, and Amazon. The console will also be sold at Croma and Landmark stores across the country, as well as over 100 gaming specialty stores.
