Similarly, the price of Xbox Game Pass is also going up starting July 6th. It’ll now cost $18.95 AUD per month with the base Xbox Game Pass now costing $11.95 per month, which is an increase of $2 USD and $1 USD respectively. Existing customers won’t see the increase until August 13th with yearly subscribers staying on their current price until that plan ends.

We’ll let you know if we hear from Xbox Australia exclusively on this matter, but you should absolutely expect to see the price of the Xbox Series X go up as of August 1st.
