Microsoft India has finally ended the speculation of the Xbox One X‘s arrival in the country, albeit in an entirely unofficial manner.
The Xbox One X is said to be available for pre-orders via Flipkart and Amazon, although there are no links to the same on either websites at the time of this writing. Furthermore, the console shall also be available via offline retailers, but there is no news of pre-orders from them as of now.
If compared to the US pricing, the Xbox One X should have been priced roughly at Rs. 32,000. To pay an extra amount of around Rs. 13,000 seems unreasonable when the One X already retails for approximately Rs. 40,000 in the grey market.
