E3 2017 Project Scorpio Price

Project Scorpio is available for pre-order now for $999 (placeholder price) in Australia. EB Games has listed the console under a late 2017 release date.

The page didn’t mention any details that we don’t already know. At the time of this writing, no such listings are available in the U.S or Europe.

The price, as the listing mentioned, is a placeholder but compared to other regions its price in Australia will be significantly higher.

Project Scorpio, the true beast incarnate, is coming to shelves in Fall 2017. The console was announced at Microsoft’s Xbox Press Conference at E3 2016. Many were surprised to hear that it can run games at 4K, it was hard to believe our ears to be honest.

However, it is to be noted that not every Project Scorpio game will run at Native 4K. According to Albert Penello:

I think we’ve said from the beginning that it’s really going to be up to the game developers. Game developers will choose to take that 6 TFLOPS and do what they think is best for their visions for the game … if somebody wants to make a 1080p game and make it the most amazing looking game of all time on Scorpio? Great, I think that sounds fantastic!

Native 4K games aside, the real difference maker would be its price compared to PS4 Pro. Sony’s machine is releasing this year for $399 and upscales games to 4K.
