Microsoft plans to raise Xbox Series X console prices in most countries, excluding a few.

The Xbox Game Pass subscription will also experience a price hike, effective August 1.

The base price for the Game Pass will increase to $10.99/month, up from $9.99.

Following PlayStation's price increase last year, the Xbox Series X console will now see a similar adjustment.

Microsoft has maintained the Game Pass pricing since its launch in 2017 but aims to stay competitive by revising it.

The price increase will only affect existing subscribers once they renew their subscriptions.
