Xbox Scorpio Price to Make It Microsoft’s Most Expensive Console?

Xbox Scorpio Price to Make It Microsoft's Most Expensive Console?With the PS4 Pro receiving a slew of developer support (although not all of it favourable) and seeing solid sales in markets like the UK, it’s but obvious that Microsoft would want to talk up its competing console, the Xbox Scorpio.

Although it doesn’t have a release date with the company not saying more than a holiday 2017 window, that hasn’t stopped Xbox boss Phil Spencer from commenting on what it could be priced at. Needless, to say, if you’re expecting an inexpensive console, you may want to consider something else.

“Scorpio will be a premium console. It will cost more than S, obviously, this is how we are building it up. We have not announced the pricing yet, but want to make sure that the investment we are making in the product of Scorpio goes hand in hand with the requirement of high-end consumer and that means a higher price,” said Spencer in conversation with Spanish gaming website Levelup. “There is not a single product you see and say ‘this is the product that defines how you are doing in the market’. It really is the repertoire of all products with prices and when we think of Scorpio it is for a high-end consumer who demands the maximum of a console, and the console built to meet that demand.”

 While it should come as no surprise given how Microsoft has positioned the device since its E3 2016reveal, the comments come after analyst Michael Patcher claimed it would be “suicide” for the company to price above $399. This could possibly see Scorpio priced more than the Xbox One at launch, which at the time was the company’s most expensive console.

What’s your take on iterative consoles or is the PC enough for all your gaming needs? Let us know in the comments.
