Don’t Pre-order Xbox One Scorpio Until We Show Games Running On It, Says Phil Spencer
Xbox One Scorpio is one of the biggest highlights of 2017 and gamers are eager to know more about it. While gamers are waiting for the console’s reveal so they can pre-order it but according to Xbox head, don’t pre-order the console until they show games running on it.
When a fan asked Spencer when the Xbox One Scorpio will be available for pre-order? To this, he responded that just wait until Microsoft showcases some games running on the console before you pre-order.
@KeenS805 Wait until we show you games on it before you pre-order. And thanks.

Microsoft has made it clear ever since it announced the Xbox One Scorpio that it will be a premium console and will be priced according to it. However, industry analysts have time and again said that the price for the console will be very important and if priced too high it would be the console’s demise.
Recently, Wedbush Securities Analyst Michael Pachter said that Xbox One Scorpio should not be priced higher than $399 and also explained why.
According to Patcher, if Microsoft drops the price for Xbox One S to $300 by the holiday then they would have a chance to justify the $399 price tag for Xbox One Scorpio but Sony Interactive Entertainment has already laid the gauntlet with PlayStation 4 Pro price.
He added that Sony will take the smart approach and will drop the price of PlayStation 4 Pro to $349 for the holidays which will present a problem for Microsoft.
Do you think Microsoft will be able to deliver on their promise of native 4K with Scorpio? Let us know in the comments.
