Xbox Series S Price Takes a Leap in Brazil, Now Equals PS5 Digital Edition

Microsoft has confirmed a substantial price increase for the console, pushing it into the same price bracket as Sony’s original PS5 Digital Edition. This move comes amid other price hikes across Microsoft’s gaming products, signaling a trend that’s worth taking a closer look at.

Let’s cut to the chase. Microsoft has raised the Xbox Series S price to R$3599 in Brazil, up from its previous range of R$2000-2500. The company communicated this through a statement to Brazilian media outlet, The Enemy. If you’re keeping track, that’s quite a jump, and it puts the Series S at a comparable price to the PS5 Digital Edition.

But there’s more to this. The price change specifically applies to the original 512 GB Xbox Series S SKU. Those who were eyeing the black 1 TB model released earlier this year can breathe easy, as its price remains the same for now. Additionally, there’s no mention of any price adjustments for the Xbox Series X, at least for the time being.

This isn’t an isolated event. Microsoft previously increased prices for Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Series X in multiple regions. Brazil was spared in those instances, but not this time. The company also bumped up the Xbox Series X/S prices in Sweden and Japan earlier this year. Moreover, the price for newly released first-party games like Redfall, Starfield, and Forza Motorsport has been set at $70.
