The Xbox One X has a release date of November 7, 2017 worldwide. Microsoft finally announced the much hyped console during its Xbox E3 2017 conference. Allaying rumours aplenty over the week from analysts and journalists chiming in on what to expect. All existing games and accessories will work with the Xbox One X. Along with the release date, an Xbox One X price of $499 has been announced as well. No India price has been revealed just yet.
As usual, don’t expect India to get Xbox One X the same time as the rest of the world despite Microsoft claiming a worldwide release. The Xbox One S released globally in August, 2016, but doesn't have a concrete release date for India yet.
That aside, the Xbox One X won’t be cheap either, with several grey market retailers planning to capitalise on the hype surrounding it to sell at exorbitant rates. Safe to say, you’ll need to import it or get a friend or relative to pick it up for you abroad if you want the best possible deal.
