Xbox Isn’t Going To Raise Its Console Prices For Now
A lot of people are worried about whether other game companies will raise video game console prices, as well as games for that matter. PlayStation has done that so far with the PlayStation 5 and its triple-A games.
Xbox? Well, they have one idea: don’t disrupt the status quo. Xbox brand head Phil Spencer said that it’s not right in these economic times to raise prices on Xbox consoles during a CNBC interview.
“I can never say that we ever won’t do something, but… I can definitely say today we have no plans to raise the price of our consoles. We think in a time where our customers are more economically challenged than ever, we don’t think that would be the right move.”
He also said that Xbox wants to bring the Call of Duty franchise to more platforms, expanding the places for all of their games going forward. For context, Xbox is in the midst of buying Activision Blizzard, the company that runs the Call of Duty franchise.
“Exclusivity has been the backbone of our industry but we’ve built out the model for more access to our games. You can play our games on Console, PC and web browser to reach more gamers [via Xbox Game Pass].
Competition is about driving competitors to innovate.”
Keep in mind that PlayStation is currently creating exclusive content for PS4/PS5 versions of multiplatform games, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II’s Oni Operator and Weapon Blueprint, and Hogwarts Legacy’s exclusive PlayStation quest. Check out the CNBC segment below:
