Usually, price of a certain product is slashed only when the company plans to introduce the next generation device. And we now have reasons to believe that the Xbox One is on its way into India. The new gaming console is up for pre-order in the country, but certain e-retailers have listed September 2014 as its estimated release window. Microsoft is yet to reveal an exact shipping date though.

However, it should be noted that the price cut has only been introduced for the 250GB console and 250GB Kinect. Their 4GB versions continue to be available for same amounts. Interested users can purchase the Xbox 360 250GB for Rs 21,990, while the Xbox 360 250GB Kinect is available now in India for Rs 31,990. These consoles are available with various bundles too.
