Microsoft announced it is dropping the price of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold in Chile, Hong Kong, and Israel. The price has been dropped due to local currency and consumer spending power. 

In Chile, the price of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is dropping from 11,990 Chilean pesos ($14.99) to 7,990 Chilean pesos ($9.99).

The price of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in Hong Kong is dropping from 119 Hong Kong dollars ($15.29) to 79 Hong Kong dollars ($10.15).

Who in the world downvoted this? Here, have an upvote from me.

Didn't realize you were Chilean. I bet you're pretty happy about this discount. You can get 2 years of Gamepass Ultimate for the equivalent of $231 USD now. After MS killed their best Gamepass Ultimate deal here in the US (1 year EA Play to 3 months Gamepass Ultimate conversion for $30, reduced down to conversion to 2 months of Gamepass ultimate for $30), the cheapest official avenue for getting 2 years of Gamepass Ultimate is $320.

The cheapest official avenue is renewing it for free with Microsoft Rewards. ;) But yes, if you don't want to do any stupid human tricks and would rather just pay money instead, you're probably correct.

Those are super low prices for Ultimate. Strange. Maybe subscriber numbers are lower than they were hoping in those regions....

No, it's said it has to do more with the local currency and consumer spending power rather than a change in strategy. The price of Xbox Live Gold is also dropping in those 3 regions.

Why in the world was this downvoted so heavily? You are speaking truth. This is a localization thing for sure, based on exchange rate and spending power in those countries. You can easily tell this just by looking up that information for all 3 locations on google. Multiple sources have already indicated that MS doesn't plan to make any pricing adjustments in other locations.

Exchange rates, no. The article already shows the conversions to USD. The prices are well below what they are in the US when converted. Purchasing power, maybe. But, Hong Kong is "rich", so I don't know about that either.

I tend to agree with you that local conditions, such as annual incomes and the cost of competing services, predominantly affected this. Perhaps currency exchange may have played a small role, in that it may have affected how low Microsoft was willing to go in adjusting for local incomes.

Maybe. No way to really know. MS hasn't released their numbers in a long time now. Which IMO isn't a good sign but could be nothing.
