Therefore, unlike the PS5, the Xbox will not be more expensive

According to Microsoft, there should still be no price increase for the Xbox Series X/S.

A few weeks ago, Sony increased the price of the PS5 by around 50 euros. The company cited the global economic situation as the reason. The announcement by Microsoft that there will be no price increase for the Xbox Series X/S at this time was all the more gratifying.
