Both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will reach the market at the end of the year as a generational replacement for the current consoles, we already know the technical specifications of both machines, and in the case of Microsoft, until their final design, but a great fact still to be revealed is its sale price. The economic factor is always a variable to take into account
According to Piers Harding-Rolls, from the analyst firm Ampere Analysis, both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will move for a price range between $ 450 and $ 500. This report also estimates that the more than likely economic recession that is coming these days will have a negative impact on the sale of consoles, at least after initial launch sales.
The analyst also points out that, because both consoles will have backward compatibility and many publishers will release intergenerational games, several players will postpone the jump to the new generation of consoles for a while. In a recent article, Bloomberg points to a similar price range, but notes that the PlayStation 5 would have more limited units than expected during the first year on sale.
Microsoft, on the other hand, aims that it will have a greater circulation of Xbox Series X units to compete against the Sony console. Although those of Redmond have not disclosed what their console will cost, they say they are very happy with the target price.
