Xbox Series X And Xbox Series S Could Cost Half Of Playstation 5
Xbox looks set to take on Playstation later this year with their latest console, the Series X, coming up against the PS5, and Microsoft could offer their latest offering for much cheaper.
Sony revealed what the Playstation 5 will look like last month and gaming fans really can't wait for the latest generation of consoles.
It's expected that the PS5 will cost around £450, with the digital only version worth roughly £100 less, and has been rumoured to be released at the end of November. However Microsoft's latest console could be more tempting to buyers because of the potential price.
According to the Beyond 3D forum, where information is often right, it could be nearly £150 cheaper with 'Eastman' posting, "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."
On the price of Microsoft's digital only version he added, "Last I heard it be half the price of the XSX and last I heard MS were prepared for a $400 XSX," that would mean a digital version of around £200.
Much like Sony, Microsoft are expected to announce all the information about their console in a big release event, with theirs coming later this month.
On that event the forum suggested that there would be several big 'mic drops,' ending with the cheap price, "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 [be] shaken up.

"So expect a series of mic drop moments followed by the price being the key part of all this."
Gaming fans have the usual FIFA release to look forward to later this year, which should be available on the new consoles, but they'll be more excited by the latest offering from the Tony Hawk's series.
After years of very little from the franchise, and the latter years being very disappointing, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 & 2 are set to be remastered.
Fans also have UFC 4 to look forward to in the near future, with Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury set to be playable fighters in the game, but they keep having to dream about a new Fight Night game.
