Xbox Series S pre-orders have been shipped on Amazon on March 9th, Flipkart has also begun to accept pre-orders, but there is no clear delivery date. This gives interested shoppers another opportunity to purchase the latest console from Microsoft. Taking into account the demand for new game consoles, the inventory is expected to run out soon. The Xbox Series X and Series S were launched in India on November 10 last year and have been in short supply since then, although the availability of the Xbox console is better than the PlayStation 5.
Microsoft seems to be replenishing some inventory for the Xbox Series S in India. Although the console is mostly out of stock elsewhere, Amazon allows interested shoppers to place orders now, starting shipments on March 9. Amazon’s Xbox Series S is expected to be delivered between March 12 and March 14. Flipkart also listed pre-orders for Xbox Series S, but there is no clear delivery date. Both of these e-commerce sites sell it for Rs. 34,990.
Xbox Series S can be used independently, without any bundled sales, and comes with a single controller. Xbox Series S is a simplified version of Xbox Series X, but it is still very powerful. It can run games at 1440p resolution at 60fps, and some games can run up to 120fps. There is no disk drive on the Xbox Series S, so the game must be downloaded to its 512GB PCie Gen 4 NVME SSD. The console is supported by a custom 8-core AMD Zen 2 CPU and a custom AMD RDNA 2 GPU.
When it came to Xbox Series X, it seemed temporarily nowhere to be available, but the Prepaidgamecard allows you to order now, and delivery is expected between April 16th and April 20th. The price is Rs. 49,990, and supports 4K games at 60fps. Compared with Series S, it has a faster CPU, GPU and more RAM.
