Xbox Series X Pre-Orderer: How Much Will Microsoft's Console Cost?

A lot of Microsoft's release strategy naturally also depends on the competition: It is known that Sony will release the PS5 in the same period of time – and both companies will be careful not to deter their customers with too high a price. This is one of the reasons why this detail is particularly curiously expected in gaming circles. In general, a price in the rough environment of 400 to 500 euros seems realistic for the Xbox Series X – but this has not yet been confirmed.

It is also quite possible, even likely, that Microsoft will again offer an All Digital Edition of the console – after all, there has already been such a version for Xbox One, and Sony is also pursuing a two-pronged strategy with the PS5. The price of the "All Digital Edition" -Xbox Series X would probably be significantly below that of the version with drive.
