Did you wait until this year to buy an Xbox One? Maybe you got your eyes fixed on a PlayStation 4. Well, we have some good news. Your waiting was smart! There are rumors claiming that the Xbox One and PS4 will get their prices reduced.
The Price Cut
Everybody already knows that Microsoft and Sony are working on coming up with ideas for the next-generation hardware that stays at the base of the next console war. Obviously, both gamers and tech fans are looking forward to seeing what the companies will think of.
To be more specific, the rumors we mentioned earlier also suggest that in mid-2019 the PS5 will be a little bit revealed by Sony and at PlayStation Experience (PSX) the PS5 will be fully revealed in December. In 2020 the PlayStation 5 will be available for purchase.
This time around another prediction has been released by digital media, social media and electronics analyst from American video game along with Michael Pachter and Wedbush Securities. The prediction claims that both Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PS4 will get their prices reduced this year.
How Much Will It Cost?
According to Pachter the price of the PS4 will be $249 which means that you will save $150 as it was launched at the price of $399.
Now for the Xbox One, it will be priced at $199. Six years ago when it was launched by Microsoft, the Xbox One was available in only one retail configuration costing $499 which also includes one controller, the console with 500GB hard drive, and Kinect sensor. The next year, in 2014, a new Xbox One was released by the company with a retail configuration that the Kinect sensor was no longer part of, at a price of $399. With that being said, you will save $200 for the Xbox One 2014.
