Microsoft has raised the retail price of its Xbox Series S|X systems in Sweden.

As reported by GamingDeputy, the tech firm's changes for the consoles were spotted on its website.

The units' previous and new prices are listed below:

  • Xbox Series S - Previously 3,595.00 SEK ($347.34), new price 3,894.00 SEK ($376.99)
  • Xbox Series X – Previously 5,695.00 SEK ($550.53), new price 6,195.00 SEK ($599.82)

The news comes a month after Microsoft increased the cost of the consoles in Japan.

In December 2022, the firm said that it will be increasing the price of its first-party Xbox games from $60 to $70.

The Xbox maker hasn't been the only company raising the cost of its consoles. In August 2022, Sony announced that it would be increasing the price of the PlayStation 5 console in multiple regions.
