Just change your Xbox region in the settings and you'd go to the North American store, download the app and you'd be able to use your Indian Amazon Prime account on the app.

Now considering my area of interest in gaming limited to sports/racing, please suggest me the product that I should go for?

A good gaming PC, A Sony Play station or XBOX.

Since I am new to Play stations, I don't have much knowledge about them.

Please suggest.
I mean that depends on your play style. If you want a desk, chair and play at work or your work room or something, PC. If you wanna do couch, controller at home and can't keep up with the tech upgrades every year or two with the PC, then go with a console.

If PC, pick a budget and build a rig within that budget. Games are cheaper on PC with sales all over the place, gaming client like Steam, GOG and other places on the web.

If console, you'd have to pick one, and as of right now, PlayStation has better choice of exclusives. You won't find as many game sales with consoles though as you'd find on the PC.

As for the games that you have mentioned, what the hell is TOCA?

TOCA was a game developed by CodeMasters. It's full form is Touring Cars. Mainly a rally race game.

The ideal way to play sim racers like TOCA is to use a steering wheel like the G27/G29 connected to a PC. Consoles aren't even remotely in the game for stuff like this.

Not that easy. Once you change the region to North America, you wont be able to change back your Xbox Gold account to India for another 3 months. And my one year Gold membership will not be valid for new region. Too much complications.

Default 5000 off Offer on FlipKart for Ps4

Hello All,
There is an offer on Flipkart for PS4.
On any credit card / debit card, you get 5000 off!

I ordered Ps4 500 GB with two controllers for 24,999 - official price 29,999.

Seems this may not last long.

The PS4 pro is a much better bet now since devs are actively working to improve the visuals for the new platform and mostly giving the base PS4 the cold shoulder.

So, after Xbox One, I am planning to get Nintendo switch. I will get it from Australia (22k INR).
Anyone with experience?
In India, it's quite expensive at 34k at the moment.

Any PS4 Destiny players around here?
I've been playing it since it came out about 3 years back and it has spoiled me completely since I'm unable to play any other shooters.

Will be getting Destiny 2 as well.
