Ever since Microsoft revealed Xbox One Scorpio at E3 2016, many developers and publishers have shared their opinions about what this console means for the future of gaming. This time, Electronic Arts has come forward to share its views about Xbox One Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Neo.
Speaking with Gameinformer, EA executive vice president Patrick Soderlund expressed that the idea of upgrading console hardware is different but a good one.
I believe that it’s an interesting approach. We haven’t seen this whole idea of upgrading since the Mega CD in 1991 or something. At the time, that might not have worked, but this is different. I can only comment to what’s been announced by Microsoft, the whole idea of keeping the ecosystem intact and scaleable is right. If you get in later in the cycle, you can get a Scorpio or you can upgrade to it.
He further added that it is a smart idea to upgrade the console, and EA as a company is excited and favors it completely.
It’s an interesting, smart approach, and we’ll see how well it works. It’s something that we as a company are 100 percent behind. I got super excited when I saw what they are working on, and without giving you any information, the same is true of Sony. In general, this is a good thing.
Although Xbox One Scorpio has been announced but many fans are asking Microsoft what will be the price for the console.
Well, Microsoft has made its position very clear on the matter. According to the company they want Xbox One Scorpio to a premium product, which simply means that it will cost more way than Xbox One and Xbox One S.
Xbox One Scorpio is scheduled to release in Holiday 2017, and will support all games and peripherals for Xbox One and Xbox One S.
