Project Scorpio Price

Project Scorpio has been announced at E3 2016, in response to PlayStation 4 Pro’s rumors. It was a clever move for sure, but Microsoft wanted to keep secret everything important about Scorpio, pricing too. Of course, pricing is an important element that people consider when they are about to buy a console and Microsoft knows it. However, Phil Spencer talked about Microsoft’s upcoming console during an interview with levelup.com, claiming Project Scorpio price will be higher than Xbox One S.

Scorpio will be a premium console, it will obviously cost more than the S, and that’s how we’re building it. We haven’t announced anything about Scorpio’s price yet, but I want to make sure that the investments that we are putting into this console meets the demands of the higher end customer, and that will mean a higher price. When we think about the console market, we understand that there are more than just one product that our costumers buy. Some people will probably buy the 500GB Xbox One S, but other costumers will prefer buying a cheaper console, Xbox One Standard. That’s the idea of market we have in mind.”

Besides Project Scorpio price, even Xbox exec Aaron Greenberg talked about this console as he wanted to clarify that it will provide a true 4K experience.

According to his words, Project Scorpio will be a revolutionary console that will be able to provide authentic true 4K experience, something that people are paying thousands dollars for. But the best part of it all is that Microsoft is scaling so much power in a single small console.

It’s good that Microsoft is considering different kinds of costumers since not everyone is interested in powerful hardware, just like not everyone is not interested in buying the less performing console.

Project Scorpio is scheduled to release in 2017.
