One of the biggest questions before any new generation of consoles is the price that is due for the next-gen hardware. This is no different with Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. According to current estimates by two industry experts, Microsoft is planning to offer its Xbox Series X cheaper than the PlayStation 5.
In a podcast with Geoff Keighley, well-known analyst Michael Pachter and former EA Sports boss Peter Moore speculated about Microsoft's tactics. Both were of the opinion that the Xbox group is currently waiting for Sony's price announcement for the PlayStation 5. As soon as this is determined, the price for the Xbox Series X will be adjusted downwards. According to Pachter, the new Microsoft console could cost up to $ 100 less.
The two industry experts estimate that the PS5 will cost around $ 500 and the Xbox Series X will cost around $ 400. At these prices, however, both manufacturers would have to subsidize their console for a few months before making money selling the devices. Moore believes that both Sony and Microsoft were considering how long they could sustain this financial loss.
