There are indications that Microsoft may make an official announcement regarding the launch of their Xbox One X for the Indian market. The first reaction from most observers is that Microsoft has chosen to launch this gaming console in India within months of the international launch, particularly considering that it took a whole year before the Xbox One S was introduced in the Indian market.

According to T2Online, The Xbox One X is touted to be Microsoft's most powerful console and its smallest console so far. It is powered by eight-core custom AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, 12GB of GDDR5 VRAM and a 6 Teraflop GPU, which offers smoother animations in 4K.

It comes with 1TB of internal storage and the console uses a liquid-cooled vapour-chamber cooling technology.

Again, it is of relevant interest that Xbox One X’ competitor in the Indian market, Sony’s PS4 Pro is also retailed here at Rs 32,000.  And in terms of the graphical capabilities, the PS4 Pro console supports up to 4.2 teraflops while the Xbox One X is capable of offering up to 6 teraflops. It has to be placed on record that the grey market in India sells this gaming console from Microsoft at around Rs 40,000.

There is one factor the Indian buyers of the Xbox One X have to keep in perspective. The console does come with some 100 odd games. However, they are quite heavy in terms of the download sizes ranging from 60GB to 75GB and a few could even go up to 100GB. The internet facility they have subscribed to should permit them these huge volumes to be able to enjoy all of them.

Experts also make a comparison of the type of games that the PS4 console and the Xbox One have. There are more exclusive games on the Sony gaming console which the ardent gamer seems to enjoy more. With the Microsoft product the games are available for PC also whereas Sony does not allow this with its PS4 and PS4 Pro models of gaming consoles.

Microsoft is also making available to its customers the facility to upgrade to the Xbox One X if they already have the older version or the Xbox One S by providing the 4K patch for the games already in your gadget. You need to just ‘enable’ the download for 4K assets.
