My birthday release. Hmmm....Who's gifting me one?

sd173 says:

That's an unfair pricing. I just searched "INR 39990 to USD" and it converts to 675.51 USD. For shame Microsoft, for shame.

Etios says:

What Shame?? This is due to high import duty+ local taxes, PS4 costs the same in India.

Aashish13 says:

You're right now they have to cut price at l least ₹3000

Akash Oak says:

Its really too costly....MS should make consoles affordable to Indians as they are really looking to buy everything cheaply..

Etios says:

Yes, they should give it for free and i am quite sure you will also start working for free from now on. 

Winnabe says:

Well, your snark is acknowledged. But MSFT is undermining the importance of reasonable pricing in India.

Etios says:

That is the same price as PS4, High pricing is due to high import duty + local taxes, so no undermining the importance of reaonable pricing by MSFT.

mpt15 says:

Import duty and taxes aren't that high.

This was a joke comment based on the fact that every Xbox One article up until now has had someone ask this question, regardless of the topic of the article.

Damn! With this price point, my savings will either go for a new Lumia (930 most possibly) or Xbox one... I'm confused :/

Would love ❤ to play Halo and assassins' creed in Xbox. Hope wpcentral throws in a contest for it :p
