Microsoft has raised Xbox Series X/S console prices in Sweden

Microsoft has raised the prices of its Xbox Series X and Series S consoles in Sweden.

The Xbox Series X price has increased from 5,695 SEK ($550) to 6,195 SEK ($599), over two years after the console launched in November 2020.

As spotted by Gaming Deputy, the Xbox Series S price has also risen from 3,595 SEK ($347) to 3,894 SEK ($376).

In January, Microsoft also raised the prices of Xbox Series X/S consoles in Japan.

“We regularly evaluate the impact of local pricing to maintain reasonable consistency across regions,” it said in at the time.

“This price revision affects our customers and was a difficult decision to make, but going forward we will continue to provide the ultimate Xbox experience that our customers expect.”

Citing the challenging global economic environment, last August Sony raised PS5 prices in Europe, Japan, and parts of North America.

But in November, Microsoft‘s head of gaming suggested that the price of Xbox consoles, games and/or subscriptions could increase in the future.

“I think at some point we’ll have to raise the prices on certain things, but going into the holiday we thought it was important to maintain the prices,” Phil Spencer said at the WSJ Tech Live event.

He added: “We’ve held price on our console, we’ve held price on games […] and our subscription. I don’t think we’ll be able to do that forever. I do think at some point we’ll have to raise some prices on certain things.”

And the following month, Microsoft confirmed plans to raise the price of major first-party Xbox Series X/S games by $10. Starting this year, the likes of Forza Motorsport, Redfall and Starfield will cost $69.99 in the US.

won't be long now until they raise the prices evrywhere else, especially US and UK


That's just sad. Games are high as it is and the consoles aren't even worth the normal price let alone being raised ?


Hmmm strange, not often this happens. It would put me off buying if I were considering it. Then again, the Swedes are loaded and its only like an extra two hours wage for even a bartender there haha
