The Xbox Series X and S consoles have undergone a high price in two countries recently: Japan and India.
Due to the continuity of the semiconductor crisis, which directly affects console production, Microsoft began a high price in early 2023, and according to FAMISH, the Xbox Series family consoles will rise 5,000 yen, while India already
went through the second increase in six months.
We regularly evaluate the impact of local prices to maintain a reasonable consistency between regions. This value review affects our customers and was a difficult decision to make, but from now on, we will continue to offer the best Xbox experience that our customers expect
The company said in a statement.
In Japan, Xbox Series X will cost 59,978 yen (R $2,350.00 in direct conversion) in Japan, while Series S will have the suggested value of 37,978 yen R $1,488.00.
In azil, no price adjustment has been announced by Microsoft so far, but there is a possibility that other countries besides Japan and India will be affected in the coming months.
