Yesterday, Sony’s decision raised the prices of PlayStation 5 in light of the global economic situation, both for the digital version and the one with the disc player. Through a statement to the VGC editorial team, Microsoft has assured that it will not proceed in the same way, leaving the prices of its two consoles, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X, unchanged.
“We are constantly evaluating our business to offer our fans optimal gaming solutions,” said a Microsoft spokesperson. “Our Xbox Series S list price remains $ 299.99, and the Xbox Series X price remains $ 499.99.”
As VGC recalls, Microsoft refused to speak when Bloomberg asked companies earlier this year if they were planning to raise the prices of their consoles. The Redmond giant made its assessments and considered it appropriate to continue with current prices.
