Microsoft have already warned us that the Xbox One Scorpio will be a ‘premium’ product- probably to prepare us from possible sticker shock for what is likely to be an expensive product, especially with its ‘most powerful console ever made’ billing. However, in a recent interview with WinBeta, Phil Spencer discussed the Scorpio price some more.

“So you can see the price of the S today. When we designed both of these, which we kind of designed it in parallel,” he said. “We thought about the price performance of what we wanted to hit with the Scorpio, relative to what we were going to be able to do with the S. So that we would have a good price continuum, so people wouldn’t look at these two things as so disconnected because of the price delta. So I think you will feel like it’s a premium product, a premium console. And not something, anything more than that. So I wouldn’t get people worried that this thing is going to be unlike any console price you’ve ever seen. We didn’t design it that way. That said, the opening price point for the Xbox One S, and the different hard drive sizes that is a critical part of this whole product. When I think about it as a product line, you should expect the pricing to kind of be in line with that.”

Of course, his statement isn’t too reassuring- after all, we have had consoles that have been priced as high as $750 in the past, which would be over a thousand bucks today with inflation factored in. Of course, the Scorpio won’t be that ridiculously expensive- but we should still be prepared for a more expensive Xbox than anything that is currently on the market, at any rate.

    $399.99 – $499.00 ….They will take the hit , because they can and they need to in my opinion (start Gorilla marking the industry with that wallet) and i think they will at this point ..
    Take the loss on the hardware, (they probably own most of the component anyway , or share holders… they wont lose as much as you all think)get the hardware in homes and make your money back on XBL and software.
    Make a statement this gen so next gen you don’t have to take a short… Just my opinion /Theory etc etc…..

      $400-$500 is the price that it’s worth. If it is over $500 it will not sell well at all.

      The mainstream Xbox One S will be look under powered compared to the Ps4 pro which will be well established for over year and will be ready for a $50 price drop.

      Not likely bro … the pro is a fraud no true 4K only checkerboard upscale xb1s same upscale and the CPU is beefier… yes , more so than that same lame one PS4 pro is using(from the original PS4)… oh wait and a 4K bluray … and news flash the xb1s is killing the PS4!pro in the U.K., and USA ON AMAZON… no one wants the Pro my brotha …FACTS ….

      Time will tell.
      You are the biggest fanboy on here.

      CPU – “more so than that same lame one PS4 pro is using”

      And Xboxone is using (the thing sitting under your TV that you worship).

  • efnet

    I wouldn’t care what the price was, I’m ready to buy it regardless.

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL, yeah, we know how them booty cheeks stay spread open for Xbox bruh.

  • Riggybro

    That’s good to hear that it’s price will be no more than the Neo-geo at launch then (LOL).

    But seriously. Scorpio does not need to be expensive. In 14 months its tech will not exactly be bleeding edge stuff. Just look at how much a three year old GPU costs now, then add a cheap serviceable custom CPU that does the job, bare minimal RAM…
    I mean to put the 6TFs into context GPU tech will probably be 12+ TF (and that’s being conservative) when this thing comes out.
    It’s actually a pretty normal amount of power for a console in relation to the technology that will be available at the time.

    So it just like when XB1 and PS4 came out it depends on how much they are prepared to overcharge you for it!

    • LifeOnMars

      That’s the the price it needs to be, if they get the price to $400
      it will sell.

  • Mr Xrat

    3DO was $899.

    It’ll be $599 and unlike the PS3 the Xgimps will go mad for it because they’re renowned s**t eaters.

    450 i assume
