Sony has always been better at prices, with Play Station being a little less costly. However, Microsoft has hinted that it will not lose on the rate in this round.

There are no official prices for the next-gen consoles from both the companies. Some leaks and comments from the executives do provide a clue about the range of the two consoles.

The leaks are not definitive, but the speculation and some leaks suggest that the cost of the new console PS5 will be $499, whereas another source has claimed $450. The range between the two leaks is relatively short, making the estimated cost of around $499.

In the previous launch, X Box One was at a back foot because it was more expensive (think $100) with a less powerful configuration. However, the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, made it clear in an interview that X Box will not lose in price this time. So, the expectations are that there will be little or no difference between the consoles’ costs.
