The console is expected in all markets including India. Reason being, Microsoft’s Xbox website it “will be launching in all markets except China and Brazil, on October 3, 2017.”

Xbox One S Limited Edition – what’s in the box

Previously, Mojang CEO Jonas Martensson that to use Minecraft for cross-platform play Xbox Live is required, even on the Nintendo Switch. In an interview with  translated on popular gaming forum , he stated that Nintendo has agreed to this and have been “pretty pragmatic and understanding.”

“We’re tying everything together with Xbox Live. So you log in with Xbox Live…,” he trailed off, further being pressed by the website if this would include the Nintendo Switch to which he said:

“Yes. That’s pretty unique as well! But everyone that’s in on this, all the platform holders, have been pretty pragmatic and understanding of that what we’re trying to do is create a good experience for the players. We needed a good system to connect everyone, and Xbox Live is a good system.”
