Another report from the site suggests that it would cost $499 (around Rs. 32,200) — which is what the original Xbox One cost at launch in the US. The Xbox One launched in India for around Rs. 40,000. For what it's worth, the PS4 Pro costs $399 in the US (around Rs. 25,700) and is available in India for Rs. 38,990.

“The form factor of the console will pleasantly surprise you. As for cost, Microsoft told us absolutely nothing - but looking at what's in it, it ain't going to be cheap. Our guess, and it is just a guess, is $499, the same launch price as the original Xbox One.”
