With the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S revealed, it’s almost hard to believe their prices. The former retails for $499, which is already pretty good, but it’s the latter that’s especially interesting with its 1440p resolution and up to 120 FPS performance for just $299. Given that it has the same CPU and an SSD, is Microsoft taking on losses with that price?

VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb believes so. He noted on Twitter that the company is “taking a loss on both the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X” before noting that it “seems” like the former is causing a bigger loss. Interestingly, Grubb also believes that Sony’s PS5 Digital Edition is “absolutely going to take a loss.” The price point for both PS5 consoles hasn’t been officially revealed so we’ll have to wait and see.

Regardless, it’s hard to deny the value that the Xbox Series S provides especially with Microsoft expanding its Xbox All-Access initiative to more countries around the world. It’s out on November 10th along with the Xbox Series X with pre-orders opening on September 22nd. Stay tuned for more details and updates in the meantime.
