Microsoft India Reveals Xbox Wireless Controller Price Revision

Last week, Microsoft's next-gen consoles were available to pre-order across the world.

At the time, Xbox India stated the Xbox Wireless controller would be Rs. 3,999 (£41) for the white and black variants.

The blue colouration of the controller was listed at Rs. 4,999 (£52).

This did seem a little cheap for a new controller design and has since been revised by Microsoft.

The Mako Reactor reached out to Microsoft India and they replied with the revised prices.

"The prices are getting corrected as we speak: the actual MRP is Rs.5,390/- for Black and White Controllers & Rs.5,890/- for Light Blue Controller.”

This aligns with the prices currently listed on Microsft's Official Store:

  • Black / White - $59.99
  • Blue - $64.99

Although the controllers are listed on the store, no pre-orders of the controller are available at this time.
