Xbox Series X | S: Console are more expensive in Japan
The year 2022 was a costly year.
A lot became more expensive, also for gamers.
Not only the prices for games have been increased, but also Sony’s flagship, PlayStation 5, has become more expensive in Japan, Europe and parts of North America.
At the end of last year, Microsoft’s Head of Gaming Phil Spencer said that the prices for the Xbox Series X | s would not change at least until the holidays.
However, he was not sure how long the company could hold the prices afterwards.
Microsoft has now announced that it will increase prices for the consoles in Japan.
The effects of local pricing are regularly assessed.
The decision would not have been easy, but in the future you want to offer the ultimate Xbox experience that customers expect.
