Microsoft blinked first by revealing the price of the Xbox Series X ahead of Sony with the PS5. This, of course, has made impatient Sony loyalists wanting to know the cost of their next-gen system, but for everyone else, Microsoft has it in mind as the fees are more than reasonable. You can also pre-order the Xbox Series X and S for monthly payments with Game Pass Ultimate.
While many people wait for Sony to respond to Microsoft’s latest move in the game of chess between the two, everything about the Xbox Series X has been revealed, including the retail packaging. It’s up to Sony to convince casual gamers that they are the superior option for next-gen systems, but Xbox loyalists may already have plans to buy their next-gen hardware.
