Neither Sony nor Microsoft has yet declared an official price for their respective next-generation consoles, although there are hints that pre-order may start soon. However, a reputable famous insider may have some surprising information for curious fans, before any official announcement.
The information comes specifically from leaker Dusk Golem, who is well known for his leaks regarding the Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises. Within a thread on ResetEra, the insider intervened stating that he heard some rumours about the fact that Microsoft may be ready to reduce the price of its rival Sony console.
“I’m not going to say too much, but from some murmurings I’ve been hearing, I’ll just say I suspect this topic is going to age “interestingly” when a few more details on both platforms are revealed.
I mean this in a few more ways, but to give the broadest idea, I’ll just say the Xbox X is by far more powerful than the PS5 if we’re just talking raw power, multi-platform games will run better on Xbox X is something people are going to have to prepare themselves for.
Add to this Microsoft are ready to lowball Sony when it comes to price. They can more easily make a sacrifice and get back profits from Game Pass than console sales than Sony can from that comparatively,” the insider said.
However, it was later stated that the ideas of the two companies remain in constant flux, guaranteeing nothing due to a possible change of ideas. The Xbox strategy would be precisely to reduce the price of the Xbox Series X to get more users and recover the profits from the Game Pass compared to the sales of the console.
It was also pointed out that Sony, on the other hand, does not have an opportunity. Having said that, we invite all our readers to take this information with a grain of salt, since nothing has been confirmed by those in charge.
