#XboxScorpio #Gaming – Xbox One Scorpio price: Microsoft hints at EXPENSIVE console : Xbox One Scorpio price details have been revealed ahead of the 2017 release date. Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One Scorpio will definitely cost more than the Xbox One S, which is currently priced at £250.
Microsoft’s Phil Spencer told Levelup that the Scorpio will be a “premium console”. “It will cost more than S, obviously, that’s how we are building it. “We have not announced the pricing yet, but I want to make sure that the investment we are putting into the product of Scorpio meets the demands of the higher-end consumer and that will be a higher price.”
It’s likely the Xbox One Scorpio will be priced similarly to the PS4 Pro, which retails for £349. Interestingly, on the subject of price, Microsoft recently said that the Scorpio was like a high-end PC worth thousands of dollars.
Without revealing full Xbox One Scorpio specs, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg described it as the “most powerful console you’ve ever seen”. “It will bring these really true 4K, really incredible visual games that we’ve never seen before on the console,” he told Xbox FanFest attendees.
“People who have spent thousands of dollars on a high-end PC are getting that experience. “How do we bring that to scale in a console in your living room? That’s a big part of what Project Scorpio is about.” The Xbox One Scorpio is being touted as the most powerful console ever created.
It boasts 6 teraflops of GPU, which will deliver 4K gaming and support virtual reality. It’s so powerful that Microsoft recently had a dig at Sony’s PS4 Pro console, telling one site the device won’t be able to handle true 4K and that the Xbox One Scorpio is aiming higher.
“I think there are a lot of caveats they’re giving customers right now around 4K. They’re talking about checkerboard rendering and up-scaling and things like that. “They’re going to be able to decide to take that six teraflops of power and do what they think is best for their game. But I know that 4.2 teraflops is not enough to do true 4K.” Source: express
