PlayStation 5 & Xbox Series X: How much could the next-gen consoles cost on release?


With Holiday season just a few months away now, gamers all around the world are getting rather excited for the launch of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X.

With dust settling on the current generation of consoles, it's all about the next-gen, and with every passing update, fans and gamers are getting more and more excited.

Whether it be a new game being announced or new accessories being revealed, gamers right now cannot get enough of the information being dropped about the PS5 and the Xbox Series X.

Annoyingly, however, the two bits of information everyone wants to know have yet to be released by both Sony and Microsoft.

When are they being released, and how much are they going to cost.

These are the two questions we all want answers to, but as of writing this article, we sadly haven't got them.

However, that hasn't stopped people from predicting the prices, and it also hasn't stopped people from spotting potential leaks around the world wide web.

The latest prediction for the prices of BOTH consoles have emerged, and it's safe to say they are what you'd expect for a next-generation console.

According to a well-known tech blogger, in his latest YouTube video, Tom from Moore’s Law Is Dead has made some predictions with regards to the unveil pricing for both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X.

Below you can see said predictions, and then you can decide for yourself if you agree with Tom, or if you think he's way off the mark.

  • PS5 Blu-ray model: US$399 to US$499
  • PS5 Digital Edition: US$349 to US$399
  • Xbox Series X: US$399 to US$499 (more likely from US$450 to US$500 though)
  • Xbox Series S: US$249 to US$299 (which may cost around US$280 to make)

So there you have it, there are the latest pricing predictions for the next-generation of consoles.


GIVEMESPORT's Alex Batt says...

Going off these predictions, it's hard to disagree really, as any new console is likely to cost anywhere up to $500.

The Digital Edition of the PS5 is certainly going to be the cheaper option out of Sony's next-gen consoles, and with it potentially being as low as $350, that would surely be deemed a good deal.

As for the Xbox Series X, it wouldn't surprise me if they released for a cheaper amount than the PS5, just because more people will probably sway towards the Sony console, so making your own cheaper could be a quick win.

The Xbox Series S could be a real cheap option if you wanted a next-gen console but didn't want to break the bank for one, but of course, you get what you pay for, so be prepared for a lesser version.

For what it's worth, I'd predict the main PS5 and the Xbox Series X to be released for around $450-$500.
