Both Microsoft and Sony have been very vocal about the Holiday release date of their respective next-gen consoles. As a matter of fact, we already have the critical information ranging from design and specifications to the release titles of both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, with the exception of price. Both console manufacturers are waiting for their competition to announce the price first.
Sony exploited the opportunity during the current generation and undercut the Xbox One by $100. The price impact lasted quite a while and the headstart that PS4 enjoyed during its initial days resulted in increased sales throughout the generation.
Only a few months to go before the actual release of the console, and we still have no clue about the prices of the consoles. Experts and leakers point towards a price that is less than $500 for both consoles. A few days ago, we saw many leaks hinting towards the pre-order announcement of the PS5 by Sony. Sony’s marketing executive debunked all of these during his chat with Geoff Keighley when Sony showcased the DualSense controller during a live stream.

Now, another leak has surfaced, hinting towards Microsoft to start the pre-orders of Xbox Series X very soon. As can be seen in the image embedded in the Tweet above, the subscribers of the Australian Telstra network will get exclusive information about the pre-orders of the Xbox Series X and Xbox All Access. It clearly mentions that the pre-orders will start soon, which means Microsoft may announce the price of the Series X console very soon.
As is the case with any other leak, we should take it with a grain of salt. If Microsoft ends up announcing the price in a few days, it would not be wrong to assume that Sony will also announce the price immediately afterward or vice versa.
