Most sources agree that game consoles will cost about $500. It is a good price, but it could be even more. Fortunately, new information says that this will not happen. We are very pleased with latest news, because we are big fans of game consoles from both manufacturers.
A recently concluded US-China trade agreement will not affect the prices of new game consoles from Microsoft and Sony, meaning they will not become more expensive.
