Other retailers are still accepting pre-orders

Video game news websites Indian Video Gamer and The Mako Reactor reported on Wednesday that Indian retailer Reliance Digital has been cancelling pre-orders for the Xbox Series X/S consoles. Indian Video Gamer spoke with a customer service representative for Relaince Digital who stated that the orders are being cancelled as the retailer has yet to confirm stock availability for the consoles. The Mako Reactor noted that major retailers such as Amazon and Flipkart are still listing the consoles with a shipping date of November 10.

Xbox India announced on September 9 that the Xbox Series S will cost ₹34,990 and the Xbox Series X will cost ₹49,990 in India. Pre-orders started for the console on September 22. Games such as SNK's Samurai Shodown (Samurai Spirits), Koei Tecmo's Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires (Shin Sangoku Musō 8 Empires), Capcom's Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition, and Granzella's R-Type Final 2 have already been announced for the console.

Microsoft will release its next-generation Xbox Series X console on November 10. The console will have 12 teraflops of processing power through its eight-core AMD Zen 2 processor, as well as a 1 terabyte solid-state drive for storage. The system will be backwards compatible with Xbox One games, with optional graphical enhancements, and achievements and other game records carrying over.

Microsoft will also release its Xbox Series S console on November 10. The console will be 60% smaller than the Xbox Series X. The console will have a custom NVMe SSD. Other features will include a resolution of 1440 pixels with up to 120 FPS, DirectX Raytracing, variable rate shading, variable refresh rate, and 4K streaming playback.

Only digital releases will be compatible with the system, and it will have "an instant library of 100+ high quality games, including all new Xbox Game Studios titles the day they release, when you add Xbox Game Pass Ultimate."
