Xbox India Restocking Set to Happen Later This Month: Here’s Everything You Need to Know

After a long period of anticipation, it looks like more Xbox Series X/S stock could be heading to India by the end of this month or early next month. This information goes through Xbox India Lives, an unofficial Twitter account that provides updates on consoles, games, and accessories released from Xbox in the country. Stock will likely be available from the usual online retailers, Amazon, Vijay Sales, Flipkart, etc.

While the PS5 and the Digital Edition have had routine restocks in India, Microsoft’s next-gen console has been a rare find in the country. The last reported restock for the Series X/S was in November 2021. The upcoming restock will be Microsoft’s first for the year 2022, in stark contrast to Sony’s multiple restocks in 2022 itself.

Microsoft’s communication strategy regarding games, consoles and accessories in India has been weak to say the least, but unofficial sources such as XboxIndiaLives have stepped in to fill that gap in the meantime.

Xbox Series X/S restock could be slated for late April or early May

As IGN India reported in April 2021, the Xbox Series X/S were the top-selling consoles in India in March 2021, which was quite surprising, given how little official communication from Microsoft. The consoles themselves are pretty solid, especially bolstered by Game Pass, which offers a large catalog of games in a subscription model.

The library of first-party Xbox games has also started to grow quite a bit with a slew of high-profile upcoming releases such as Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga, Starfield, and more. PlayStation is also looking to compete with Game Pass with a recently revamped PlayStation Plus.

Game Pass was set to get a price cut in India, with Game Pass Ultimate available for Rs 499 while Game pAss for PC has been discounted to Rs 349.
