Analyst Thinks The Xbox One Scorpio Should Be Priced For Less
A lot of buzz has been surrounding the Xbox One Scorpio, which is considered to be Xbox's version of the PS4 Pro - an upgraded and more powerful version of the Xbox One that is able to play games in 4K. With Phil Spencer marking the Scorpio as a "premium" console, it's curious what kind of price tag it's going to get. Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter comments on the possible price, and says that it can't go over $400.
Speaking to Gamertag Radio, Pachter elaborates on why he thinks the Scorpio will fail if the device is given a price tag higher than $400. He says that the price could be greatly affected by how much the competition - Sony - will be pricing the PS4 Pro in Christmas. He says, "If the Xbox One is still $300 next Christmas... they might have the guts to charge more than $399, but I think PS4 is laying the gauntlet down, that's the price of the PS4 Pro. So, I don't see Scorpio charging more - if they do, they're going to have to explain why it's better. And if Sony's smart, and they are, PS4 Pro is going to be $349 next Christmas. So, what's Microsoft going to tell you?"
Others may agree with Pachter and his $400 cap, because Microsoft will have to do a lot of marketing when it comes to emphasizing how much better the Xbox One Scorpio will be compared to the PS4 Pro. Even then, a more expensive price might turn some people off and that would only mean more people going for the PS4 Pro. Even Nintendo has been receiving some backlash on the price of some items for the Nintendo Switch, and they've already made some price adjustments.
No release date has been announced for the Xbox One Scorpio, but some are thinking that Microsoft's premiere console will be getting a reveal this coming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on June 13.
