Xbox and GamePass to Get Price Increases

With the exception of the United States market, Microsoft is raising the price of the Xbox Series X. The Xbox Series S will stay the same price. They are also raising the price of GamePass. GamePass isn’t getting much of an increase, but any is too much.

According to Verge:

The Xbox maker is also increasing the monthly prices of its Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions for the first time next month, which will see the base Game Pass subscription for console move up to $10.99 a month from $9.99.

Xbox Series X console pricing will largely match the price hike Sony announced for the PS5 last year, with the Xbox Series X moving to £479.99 in the UK, €549.99 across most European markets, CAD $649.99 in Canada, and AUD $799.99 in Australia starting August 1st. The Xbox Series S pricing will not be adjusted in any markets, remaining at $299.99.


I understand that inflation is raising, but is the Xbox really in a position to even consider raising prices? I contend that they are languishing, and will eventually leave the market.
