Both Microsoft and Sony were not keen on confirming the pricing and launch dates of their next-generation consoles, but recent leaks made it really difficult for this information to be hidden.
We had one with the controller, and now a whole bunch of them are doing the rounds.
For starters, we had Brad Sams revealing the design of Xbox Series S, the low-cost discless alternative to the Xbox Series X. This is a much smaller variant of the flagship console that takes a fair bit of inspiration from Xbox One S.
And according to the information provided in that report, it will hit store shelves for the sweet, sweet price of just $299.
Then we have the next leak that comes from none other than WalkingCat:

Following that, a separate report claims that remaining primary details for both these new members of the Xbox family.
The Xbox Series S will not only hit the market at $299, but will also be available with Xbox All Access for just $25 per month. Likewise, the Xbox Series X will be priced at $499, or $35 per month with Xbox All Access.
Both consoles are expected to launch on November 10, 2020.
All in all, it looks like the Redmond based technology titan is coming all prepared this time around, at least on the hardware and software side of things. It really has to be, in face of competition in the gaming space heating up to solar levels.
Let’s wait for the official confirmation, but so far so good.
