Xbox Series: the price increases by about 36 euros
“Therefore, a price increase of 5,000 yen has been announced starting from February 17th.

We regularly evaluate the impact of local prices to maintain reasonable consistency across regions. This pricing review is impacting our customers and it has been a difficult decision, but going forward we will continue to deliver the ultimate Xbox experience our customers expect.” we could read in the Microsoft press release via Gematsu given by VG Chartz.
