Xbox Series S/Lockhart Price Will Be Half of Xbox Series X, Insider Says

An insider has revealed possible details about future next-gen strategies of Microsoft, revealing some alleged information about Xbox Series S/Lockhart and various other interesting aspects.

Regarding the hypothetical console, whose name could be Xbox Series S or Lockhart, the insider Eastmen said that it is an exclusively digital platform, very important in the company’s strategy thanks to its lower price and other features.

In that sense, the insider Eastmen stated the following in the Beyond3D forums: “Last I heard it be half the price of the XSX and last I heard MS were prepared for a $400 XSX. I am not sure what the final price will be. I think if sony is $500/$600 MS may try to go in at $200/$400/$500 but we will see. MS will make up any losses they take by getting a higher cut of game sales and more subscriptions. Pricing also depends on what Sony does. MS doesn’t have to go as extreme in pricing if sony prices itself higher.”

Other details refer to the July event of Microsoft which, according to what has been written, will present a line-up that will make the releases related to the previous Microsoft consoles pale. The latter would then intend to propose, within its services, one AAA title per month, and would be about to acquire five important studios, including Warner Bros. Games.

But from what I”ve heard from all my sources July isn’t about sony , July is about the industry and they want it to be a night of mic drops . They are going to come hard with the strategy they have been building up to for years and they want google , amazon , apple , sony and yes Nintendo to shaken up. So expect a series of Mic drop moments followed by the price being the key part of all this.

That’s why I think Lockheart is a key device in their strategy. Its low cost gateway that they can control to make sure the hardware can handle their new compression techniques they will employee with xcloud over the next few years. The plan for Lockheart is to get into price categories they were never able to hit before and I believe based on listening between the lines that they expect lockheart to at some point make it down to fire tv size . Also the size of the first lockheart will surprise everyone.

Like all rumors, this should be taken with a big grain of salt. This, however, seems to be very intriguing information, and we hope that everything will prove true in the future. As for the presentation scheduled for July, it is still not known what the exact date will be, so we will have to wait for some announcement from Microsoft about it.
