Yesterday with Microsoft’s price announcement of the new Xbox Series X & Xbox Series S the world has got all excited because of the attractive pricing of $499 (or Rs. 36,649) for the Series X and $299 (or Rs. 21,999) for the Series S. Well a lot of Indians are excited as well, however, you won’t be getting access to the attractive Xbox All Access program that grants you a next-generation Xbox, and 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate starting at $24.99 a month, with no upfront costs.
So, while mourning about this, now Xbox India’s Facebook page has revealed the Indian pricing of these two new next-generation consoles, but, do not get excited because in India the Xbox Series X will cost a hefty Rs. 49,990. Yes, that’s almost Rs. 13k more than other countries and that surely must include GST and other taxes, however, you’ll be happy to know that the Xbox Series S will be costing you a sweet Rs. 34,990.
Much like the world release, you could get either of the consoles from November 10 onwards with pre-orders of both of them begin from September 22. The Xbox Series X and its promise to deliver 4K games at 60 fps, as well as support for up to 120 fps for “the most demanding and competitive games.” Also, there’s support for hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing giving you framerates up to 120 frames per second.
The Xbox Series S delivers approximately 3x the GPU performance of Xbox One and was designed to play games at 1440p at 60 frames per second, with support for up to 120fps. It also features the next generation AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture and this budget gaming console will be focused to give higher frame rates for both 1080p and 1440p gaming.
Also with its popular Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that gives access to a huge library of games, now you get the inclusion of EA Play membership, which allows you to play a huge library of EA games absolutely for free. Gear up gamers, good times incoming this fall!!!
