There’s no doubt the Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition looks great with its design and visual enhancements. A page has appeared on Microsoft with the pricing but the price is out of this world. Is this a mistake?
Update: Phew! Close call there if you wanted one of these. According to Microsoft’s Social Marketing Manager for Consoles and Accessories, this is not what it’s going to cost! Stay tuned for the real price in June.
Not correct at all, stay tuned in June for all the details!

The price of the console bundle has been listed by Microsoft at a whopping $1,999.99. Yes, you read that right, $1,999.99. While some rather wealthy fans may be prepared to stump up the cash, it’s not exactly affordable for what you are getting. An Xbox One X can be picked up for $299.00 from Microsoft so this limited edition design is costing 1,700.99.
Right now we have no idea if this page is actually some kind of placeholder but if it remains at that price it might not sell too many units. While I hope that Cyberpunk 2077 lives up to all the hype, this pricing is unwarranted for a Limited Edition. Also consider that there is a next generation of consoles around the corner so it would be better to spend your cash on the latest tech instead of a fancy design.
I’ve shot a query off to CD Project about this pricing and if I have an update I’ll let you all know.
