PS5-350
XBox Scarlett+250

The probability of PS5 outselling XBox Scarlett is 77%. That means you would have to bet $350 to profit $100. If you see the underdog here in this scenario coming through, then bet $100 to win $250 with XBox Series X.

These odds should be a clear enough indication of which console is expected to more successful between PS5 and XBox Series X, within the UK at least. Both consoles have a huge and loyal fan base and we expect them to be a financial and technical success.

PS5 vs XBox Series X Price Comparisson

According to tech site whathifi.com in January 2020, an anonymous leaker claimed the PS5 would cost £449 in the UK and $499 in the US. Given that the Xbox Series X shouldn’t be a million miles away in terms of spec, we’d expect it to be competitively priced around the £499/$499 mark.

Too pricey? Microsoft is also rumoured to be launching an all-digital version of the Series X codenamed Lockhart. Games industry analysts predict that we could see a disc-less Series X console launch at £399/$399. Whether this will be the cheapest console remains to be seen.
