Xbox Series S price in India has risen again, now Rs. 39,990: report

Xbox Series S consoles are reportedly getting a price hike in India – again. According to games analyst Rishi Alwani, Microsoft’s next-gen game console will now cost Rs. 39,990, with pre-orders for the same coming into effect on January 10. This is an increase of more than 5%, with the Series S previously listed at Rs. 37,990 in August. This is the third price increase in the space of six months, and it likely owes its credit to the weakening Indian Rupee (INR) against the US Dollar (USD). Gadgets 360 has reached out to Microsoft India for comment, and we’ll update this story when we hear an update. When it launched in 2020, the Xbox Series S was listed at Rs. 34,990.

At the time of writing, both Amazon and Flipkart are selling the Xbox Series S consoles at a lower price, with the former selling it for Rs. 31,799 after discount. The e2z store has listed it for even cheaper at Rs. 24,999 – so grab it before the price gets updated. The new price of Rs. 39,990 definitely seems a bit exorbitant, given that you can get a Gilded Hunter S-series bundle – contains cosmetics and virtual currency for Fortnite, Rocket League and Fall Guys – for the same price in the e2z store.

In November, Microsoft also increased the prices of its flagship Xbox Series X console, which is now priced at Rs. 55,990 – available on Amazon India and Flipkart. At the time, several Xbox Wireless Controllers were also subject to the increased cost – the Robot White and Carbon Black variants went from Rs. 5,690 to Rs. 5,990. Meanwhile, the Electric Volt variant is currently priced at Rs. 6,590 – previously, Rs. 6,290.

At that time, even Sony raised the prices of its PS5 console in India. The standalone PS5 Digital Edition now costs Rs. 44,990, while the 4K Blu-ray-equipped PS5 is priced at Rs. 54,900 – marking a 10 and 12.5% ​​increase from its launch price of Rs. 39,900 and Rs. 49,900, respectively. That said, India wasn’t the only market hit in terms of price hikes, as the company made its game console more expensive in several other regions in August.
