At this rate we are going to find out the price of the systems after we actually buy them... Come on Sony/MS pull the fucking trigger already.

They really are playing chicken until the very last second, aren't they? I wonder who will blink first.

599 US dollars. Perhaps why the Series S is seemingly a thing.

Could be a while. We didn't know the price of the Switch until 2 months before it launched.

If the wait is to see how much parts are going to cost in a covid-19 world fine, but if its just a blinking match for one to announce it so the other can undercut it just announce it already. The N64 was announced at $250 but ended up coming out at $200. I can't image it would be a huge deal if Sony announces a $500 price, Microsoft follows up and announces $450 and Sony decides to lower it.

I feel like Microsoft should reveal their price first since they revealed their console and specs first.


Immersiveunreality (on 07 July 2020)

I expect a minimum of 100 dollar increase over current gen starter prices.


DonFerrari (on 07 July 2020)

I wasn't expecting it anyway, think it will be on August to September.

And the game of chicken continues. Who will be the first to jump.

The verge isn't a credible source. Remember their "build a PC" video? Yeah, they are amateurs.


shikamaru317 (on 07 July 2020)

Totally different person at The Verge, that PC video was made by some intern as I recall. Tom Warren is well known for having excellent sources at Microsoft. Before The Verge hired him he started his own wesbite called WinRumors, dedicated to Microsoft rumors and leaks.

Ah, I see. Good. This means Microsoft must be struggling with pricing just as much as Sony. So much for Series X being cheaper than PS5.

Rumor is MS plans to announce Series S

Rumor is MS plans to announce Series S (Lockhart) and pricing for S and X in a smaller August event. They are likely waiting to announce in August specifically because they know Sony is doing a State of Play in August and will likely announce PS5 pricing at that State of Play. It seems like they are both playing chicken with each other, both afraid to announce pricing first because they are afraid the other will undercut their price for an E3 2013 like "PS4 is $400" mic drop moment.
