Phil Spencer: It's 'Not The Right Move' To Raise Price Of Xbox Series X|S

Xbox boss and Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer has been speaking as part of a new CNBC interview this week, and one of the topics that was brought up was the potential of Microsoft raising the prices of Xbox Series X and Series S.

Of course, this topic came to light last month when Sony announced that the PlayStation 5 was going up in price in certain regions, with Microsoft following up with a statement to say that it wouldn't be following suit with Series X|S.

Then, earlier this week, Spencer explained that he felt it wasn't "the right move" for the company right now:

"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."

As Spencer mentioned, he didn't want to commit to Microsoft never raising the price of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S as he explained "we're always evaluating our business going forward", but we'd be pretty surprised if the company made a U-turn on its decision in the future.

So, there you go! You heard it from the boss himself - the Series X and Series S prices are staying put.
