We already know that joining the PCMR has been a struggle since the past 2 years because of the global chip shortage and the huge demand from the Crypo industry. In times like these, people still want to enjoy themselves by playing video games but paying an absurd amount of premium on GPUs is something no body wants to do.
As such, the Xbox Series S is an amazing package to get while you wait for the graphic cards to get cheaper. At Rs. 64,000, you’re getting a device that can play games at 120fps or upscaled to 4K.
It takes barely few seconds to start up the console and then maybe 40 seconds tops to start playing. If you’re using the Quick Resume feature that Xbox has, you can literally be gaming within 20 seconds of starting up the Xbox. This is an amazing feature for those who just want to play a match before leaving for work or while catching a break.
If you’re thinking gaming is expensive on the Xbox, that really isn’t the case. You can get by the first month by getting the GamePass for 1$ and thereafter you can buy the 12 month subscription of GamePass Ultimate for Rs. 4500-5500. Not only will you have access to the games within the GamePass, you’ll also get EA play which means you can play FIFA 21, Battlefield, and NFS games. Multiplayer subscription comes with the GamePass ultimate, so you don’t need to worry about that either.
At the moment, you can pick up an Xbox Series S for Rs. 64,000 boxed packed, or a used one for Rs. 55,000 – 57,000. For the price of a RX 580, you’re getting a ready to play machine. The best part is, once the GPU market finally stabilizes, you can easily sell of this console.
