Xbox Scorpio NEWS: Microsoft drops MASSIVE price hint for high spec console – Express.co.uk
Xbox Scorpio may have a 2017 release date, but that hasn’t stopped fans speculating about the Project Scorpio specs and price.
Fortunately, Microsoft has dropped a big hint about the price, and it’s good news for fans.
Microsoft previously said that Scorpio was like a high-end PC worth thousands of dollars, leading some fans to speculate that it would cost more than your average console.
But in an interview with AusGamers, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer said that the company wants to compete with consoles, and not PCs.
“I want Scorpio to be at a console price-point,” he said. “I’m not trying to go and compete with a high-end rig.
“And because we’re building one spec, we’re able to look at the balance between all the components and make sure that it’s something we really hit that matters to consumers and gamers.”
