The Xbox One X makes its debut in India for ₹44,990
Microsoft's most powerful gaming console is now available in India.
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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab). And you do get a pretty decent Blu-Ray player.
From Priyadarshi Mohapatra, Country General Manager for Consumer & Devices Sales at Microsoft India:
The Xbox One X will be available from Microsoft's online store, Flipkart (opens in new tab), and Amazon. The console will also be sold at Croma and Landmark stores across the country, as well as over 100 gaming specialty stores.
If you're interested in picking up the console today, you can get ₹2,000 cashback provide you have a Citi credit or debit card. Flipkart has partnered with Citi over its first sale of 2018, giving customers the ability to pick up 10% cashback for purchases over ₹5,000. The maximum cashback per card is ₹2,000, so if you haven't bought anything during the sale and have been eyeing the Xbox One X, it's an easy way to save some cash.
