Microsoft has unveiled that the budget-oriented 4GB variant of XBox, previously sold for Rs.15,990, is now obtainable for Rs.12,990. Correspondingly, the technology behemoth has slashed the cost of 4GB XBox 360 with Kinect (the motion sensing device) from Rs.26,990 to Rs. 21,990, and the 250 GB XBox 360 with Kinect from Rs.31,990 to Rs.29,990.

The company stated that XBox has played a pioneering role in providing unparalleled gaming indulgences to aficionados all around the globe. During the month of December, which is celebrated as the holiday season worldwide, Microsoft vended 6.6 million XBoxes in the last quarter of the year.

Apart from the discounted prices, Microsoft has also announced a couple of other perks for the buyers. The offer comprises two games, namely, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Ghosts. Moreover, an XBox Live Gold membership for a month is available to buyers of XBox 360 500GB, which is priced at Rs.19,990.

XBox Live Gold membership worth Rs. 3,400 allows users to have full Xbox 360 game downloads, Xbox Live Arcade games, and unique fashions and avatar props.

Overall, the number of gamers is increasing at a steady pace.

XBox’s rivals in the market are Sony’s Playstation and Wii, both in the Indian and international markets.
