UPDATE: Microsoft has officially announced the price of the Xbox Series X will be $499. As of posting this, they have also confirmed that the monthly All Access prices will be $25 per month for Xbox Series S and $35 a month for Xbox Series X.

CORRECTION: The Captain America clip at 2:08 was incorrectly labeled as "Civil War (2016)" when it's from "The Winter Soldier (2014)."

This video has also been edited to remove a line mentioning an additional cost for Xbox Game Pass w/ All Access. At the time of recording this video, the monthly pricing structure had not been confirmed by Microsoft.

You will find out the ps5 price when the cashier scans it.

And this is only $300?! Wow, that's completely unexpected. MS seriously won over an awful lot of cheap parents & casuals. That's an insane price tag.
Gamepass is included with Xbox all access. I'd expect CNET to do a little more research

The $25/month and $35/month prices include GamePass. There is no $40 or $50/month.
I feel like I just got shouted at for 5 minutes

I am an xbox user for while and simply this is a great move made by MS to keep existing customers. For me XBOX is not just a console it has been the center of my entertainment. I do not use smart options on my smart TV. I do not play games as I used to but my son do and all games I have bought would be there at day one. That is important for me. Someone compared this version of Xbox with mid-range phones. I would ask him/her "Have you ever had a mid-range phone" I have and let me tell you, it works for me. Today those phones have everything I need except wow effects. Do I need a wow effects? No. Do you want to pay same game once again? I do not know.
The price changes everything

I really hope this makes sony have lower prices, this is an amazing sounding console, but im only getting consoles for the exclusives so im going ps5. However, this is undeniably good for most gamers. well done xbox.

-Who's your host?
-Ashley Esqueda
-I can watch all day.
I know I’ll end up owning both platforms but sure seems like Microsoft just told Sony: All your base are belong to us.
Ps5 digital is probably only $50 cheaper than the disc version. So my guess is that the ps5 digital will cost $450 to $500.

I’m getting Both Series S for my LED 55inch Samsung TV and Series X for my 65Inch LG 4K HDR TV. So yeah getting both and will pick a PS5 sometime next year in 2021 but first will be these two bad boys.

I give Microsoft much props for ALWAYS coming out first with all major announcements since the intro of Series X . Sony has been layback, quiet and last to announce any major news. They tend to announce their major news after Microsoft has done their first major announcements.

I appreciate how Microsoft has been first to announce & transparent with all their plans in this next-gen gaming era. They get my commitment & money first on both Series S & X. 👍
The series S just makes me want to get the Xbox Series X more
This is all pretty damn amazing, but if the only difference between S and X is 1440p vs 4k I have to see it to believe it. That is just crazy.

I think Microsoft made an excellent decision by giving people the option to pay over time. Very good decision as you mentioned in the video. Specially right now.
Carlos Nieves
Carlos Nieves:
As a Playstation guy I was seriously intrigued with this option until i heard about the 512 GB of storage. They're pretty much forcing your hand to purchase a storage expansion card which could very well have been by design. Don't get me wrong with game pass and everything there's a lot of good things on the table. However the Series S would've really capitalized on the market if the storage was at least close to Series X I think. But I guess They didn't see it that way. Even so i still believe Series S is gonna sell very well. Its a solid option for players wanting a more affordable option.
Microsoft now thats how you launch an Xbox ..great job with All access with the all powerful Series X/ and the tiny but mighty [email protected] m Series S at $299 and gamepass with over 100 games for $24.99 that is awesome !!!

I think sony should stop for another 6 years and build the ultimate game console and then xbox makes another one and just idk but i respect all consoles
Xbox have really brought something to the table this generation, they’ve found a gap in the market, following Nintendo in a sense not worrying about 4K like it’s the main selling point !!!!

Well done Xbox very good idea with the series s, but I’m still buying the series x
Series X here I come 😁

Arsenic c:
The fridge was priced higher then what rumors were. Seems like Xbox is a cell phone and the service is the data plan.
If people can hack it and run windows applications then this would be a really good looking emulation box especially if they get drivers working and you might even be able to run other modern games if people get drivers working.
cool I can get 12 fps while I'm playing minecraft at 4k with ray tracing

For Sony to kill Microsoft they need to sell the digital version for $299 and the disk version for $399 that will completely destroy Microsoft
