We don't know much about Microsoft's next-gen Xbox Scorpio console, apart from the fact that it'll be a 4K gaming console that handles VR and has 6 TFLOPs of performance - but what about price?

I've been expecting Microsoft to nail $699 since it'll be a premium console, but Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has said that Xbox Scorpio "is priced at $399", where he adds: "This might not be low enough, particularly if PS4 Pro drops before holiday 2017, but Microsoft has to price competitively or fall farther behind".

 

I think we'll see Xbox Scorpio coming out at $599 or so, and ushered in as a premium console with "Made for 4K" games as Dan Pearson of GamesIndustry.biz puts it. I want to see 1080p 60FPS as the minimum option, while 4K 30FPS (ugh) will be offered because the 4K buzzword marketing hype machine will demand it.
