Microsoft Xbox Series X/S are all sold at a loss, and the low-end version loses more
As Microsoft announced the price of the next-generation console Xbox Series X yesterday, the prices of the two next-generation consoles of Microsoft have been announced, but their final prices of US$499 and US$299 are the same as those in the industry. The speculation at the beginning of the release was different. At that time, the industry generally believed that its price should be $699.
Today, industry insider Jeff Grubb said on Twitter that Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are losing money, and the low-end version will lose more . However, Jeff Grubb did not provide details of the cost of Microsoft’s mainframe, or any other convincing evidence to show that Microsoft is indeed selling the mainframe at a loss.
It is reported that although Microsoft Xbox Series S is a low-end version of the next-generation console, it provides 1440p resolution and up to 120 fps hardware performance, and its CPU and solid-state drive are the same as the Xbox Series X priced at $499 at $299. The price really makes people feel bright.
There is also a possibility that Microsoft wants to use this to gain a head start in comparison with the competitor Sony PS5. Currently, Microsoft has announced the price first, but Sony seems very passive.
IT Home was informed that Amazon UK website put up a PS5 wall mount this week, and the website shows that its sale date is November 19. Amazon Japan also launched a variety of PS5 accessories this week, showing the release date is November 20. However, we have seen too many revelations about the release time of the Sony PS5. Now we only hope that Sony will announce the price and release time of its console as soon as possible.
