According to the report, the Xbox Series S  will come with a $299 price tag. Its release date is also listed as November 5. For the Xbox Series X, it will arrive a day later (November 6) with a $499 price tag.

The Sony PS5 digital version will come with a $399 price tag on November 13th. However, the regular version with a 4K UHD Blu-ray disc drive will sell for $499. Its release date is also November 13th.

Regardless of the price, it is quite strange for the Xbox Series to arrive one day apart. The price of XSX ($499) is the same as that of Xbox One. However, the $299 price tag for the Xbox Series S is more expensive than the Xbox One S.
