Don’t Worry About The Price of Project Scorpio: Phil Spencer
Project Scorpio is going to be a premium product, of course, but we should not worry about its price. These words came from Xbox Boss Phil Spencer, who assured the community that Project Scorpio will be sold at a reasonable price point.
So you can see the price of the S today. When we designed both of these, which we kind of designed it in parallel. We thought about the price performance of what we wanted to hit with the Scorpio, relative to what we were going to be able to do with the S. So that we would have a good price continuum, so people wouldn’t look at these two things as so disconnected because of the price delta
He went on to say:
So I think you will feel like it’s a premium product, a premium console. And not something, anything more than that. So I wouldn’t get people worried that this thing is going to be unlike any console price you’ve ever seen. We didn’t design it that way.
That said, the opening price point for the Xbox One S, and the different hard drive sizes that are a critical part of this whole product. When I think about it as a product line, you should expect the pricing to kind of be in line with that
His statement suggests that Project Scorpio may also have different hard drive sizes on release day, which means various price tags for different Project Scorpio models.
Microsoft will release Xbox 4K aka Project Scorpio in Fall 2017. We will hear details such as price and release date at E3 2017.
