There are still doubts about what price the new generation consoles will be released. According to industry insider Dusk Golem, Microsoft is ready to undercut the price of the PS5 for Xbox Series X.
With the PS5 on the one hand and the Xbox Series X on the other, the new generation of consoles will finally be heralded in this year’s Christmas season. While Microsoft at least announced that the Xbox Series X will see the light of day in November, Sony Interactive Entertainment is still holding back with specific details about the launch of the PlayStation 5.
Unfortunately, it is still unknown at what prices the two consoles of the new generation will ultimately be sent into the race. According to leading analysts, we should be prepared for the fact that the new generation of consoles could be expensive.
It is speculated that the prices of the new generation consoles will be $499 US dollars, while the digital-only version of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series S, which has not yet been officially announced, will be offered correspondingly cheaper.
After assuming that the Xbox Series X will be a bit more expensive than the PS5 due to the stronger hardware, current rumors are moving in a different direction. These were initiated by the industry insider Dusk Golem, who is considered a reliable source, who recently drew attention to himself with correct predictions about Resident Evil Village and now pointed out that Microsoft could be willing to go all out and the price the PlayStation 5 to beat.
“From what I’ve heard pretty directly, Microsoft is far more ready to undercut Sony on price than Sony is to do the same. Who draws first will really set this, but most likely the Xbox X will be less expensive,” the insider says.

As long as Microsoft and Sony Interactive Entertainment remain silent on the prices of the new consoles, the information from insiders and analysts should of course be taken with the necessary caution.
