The Xbox Series X has been detailed in full, giving us a look at the console’s beefy internals (and, confirming our previous leaks, ahem), and it’s looking rather impressive.

The Xbox Series X is far more powerful than any existing video game console, with 12TF of computational power a-top 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, and 8x 3.6GHz Zen2 CPU cores. Not only that, but it’s sporting custom, well, everything, including an NVMe SSD that reduces State of Decay 2’s loading speed down to mere seconds.

Considering early analysis is comparing the Xbox Series X to the power of an RTX 2080 desktop GPU by itself which cost anywhere from $600 and up, it’s hard to envision how Microsoft expects to keep the price of the Xbox Series X down to standard console levels.

Reports from Bloomberg suggested that Sony was struggling to keep the manufacturing costs of the PlayStation 5 below $450, which is expected to sport similar specs to the Xbox Series X. While we don’t know much about the PS5 to do a direct comparison, the idea of the Xbox Series X being anywhere below $499 seems utterly remote, given the features and internals Microsoft is boasting.

So, we have two questions for you. How much do you think the Xbox Series X will cost? And, how much would you pay for an Xbox Series X?
