While the all-digital Xbox Series S has been priced at Rs. 34,990, the Xbox Series X costs Rs. 49,990 in India.

Let's take a look at how to order Microsoft's latest gaming consoles in India:
How to Pre-Oder Xbox Series X, Series S on Amazon
Amazon India has been listed as one of the official retailers for the new Xbox consoles on the Microsoft website. The platform is offering both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles, but seems to have run out of Series X stocks. Customers can opt for getting notified when new stocks become available. The Xbox Series X can be pre-ordered using this link. The Xbox Series S can be pre-ordered right now by visiting the Amazon India page. The Amazon listing of the Xbox consoles also mentions that the products will be launched on November 10.
While Microsoft has not announced any introductory offers on the new Xbox consoles, Amazon customers can avail a few benefits like no-cost EMI, 10 percent instant discount on AU Bank debit cards, 5 percent discount on HSBC Cashback Card, 5 percent cashback with Amazon ICICI Bank credit card for Prime Members, and up to Rs. 150 off on first Amazon UPI payments. Amazon is also giving Xbox Series S buyers the option to pay later in EMIs using Amazon Pay Later.
How to Pre-Order Xbox Series X, Series S on Flipkart
Flipkart has also been listed as a retail partner by Microsoft. The website, however, only has stocks for the Xbox Series S leftover for select pin codes now. Flipkart says that it will deliver the console by November 14, four days after the official launch. Xbox Series S can be pre-ordered on Flipkart using this link.
Even Flipkart is providing EMI options and a couple of discounts on Xbox consoles like a 5 percent cashback on Flipkart Axis Bank Credit Card and 5 percent off with Axis Bank Buzz credit card.
