There's no word so far on where you can pre-order the Xbox Series X and Series S in India. Amazon India seems to be the only online retailer that has a placeholder section for Xbox Series X, but it's currently empty. We've reached to Microsoft India for pre-order details and will update if we hear back.

For those wondering how much the Xbox Series S costs around the world, the global prices were announced a day earlier for the more affordable variant. It costs $299 (about Rs. 22,000) in the US, £249 (about Rs. 23,800) in the UK, CA$379 (about Rs. 21,200) in Canada, AU$499 (about Rs. 26,600) in Australia, and NZ$549 (about Rs. 26,950) in New Zealand.

As you can tell, the Xbox Series S is aiming for full-HD TVs, but Microsoft says that it's capable of scaling games up to 4K with the use of a built-in hardware scaler. The big difference between the two is their respective GPU — Series X delivers over three times the teraflops power of Series S — but that said, even the Series S is four times the processing power of Xbox One. And since both models have the same CPU, the Series S can also do all of the hardware-accelerated ray tracing, variable rate shading, and mesh shading as its bigger cousin, the Series X.

The Xbox Series X and Series S will launch November 10 in India and across the world.
