After Microsoft announced the cost of Xbox Series X and Series S game consoles, there was an interesting debate on the web. First, there was evidence that Sony decided to reduce the cost of PlayStation 5 as a response to the cost of consoles Microsoft, and secondly, insiders discussed prices on Twitter. According to their data, Microsoft will sell its set-top boxes at a loss for itself.
Both the older Xbox Series X and the younger Series S will be sold at a loss. But, interestingly, the same will be true for Sony. At least the digital version of the PlayStation 5, without an optical drive, according to the insider, will be sold at a loss.
A few months ago, there were opinions that the cost of new-generation consoles should be at the level of $600-700 for profit. But in case of Microsoft, even the top version will be sold for $500. It is expected that the same price will be paid for PlayStation 5 with an optical drive.
