Microsoft has revealed the specs for its upcoming Xbox Scorpio but the company is yet to reveal the price for the console. However, it seems that one online retailer has revealed the price for Xbox One Scorpio.
As noted by Twitter user DesiXBL, the Spanish online store, Xtralife, has listed the Xbox One Scorpio and according to the listing, the console’s price is € 399.99.
According to industry analysts, price for Xbox One Scorpio is the main factor that will determine if the console will be a failure or success. According to Michael Goodman, director of digital media strategies at Strategy Analytics, the only thing that would kick Xbox Scorpio out of the market will be its price, and Microsoft has quite some time before they announce it.
According to Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter, it would be a suicide if Microsoft decides that the price for the console will be more than $399.
He further added that given Microsoft’s history for pricing its console, it is somewhat likely the company might price the console a bit higher, and we can only hope that they won’t make the same mistake again that they did with Xbox One.
However, according to Phil Spencer, they are not trying to compete with high-end PCs in the market in terms of power and Xbox One Scorpio price will be reasonable.
He further added that Xbox One Scorpio will be priced at a console price-point and since they are not competing with PCs they will be able to balance the price and performance.
