While Microsoft hasn’t revealed the exact Xbox Scorpio price or release date or even its official name, but it did show off a bunch of specifications and features for its Xbox One iteration. And in doing so, it let slip that you can expect to buy the Xbox Scorpio for.
“But one thing seems clear: Project Scorpio will be more expensive than PS4 Pro,” claims Eurogamer. The site hosted the exclusive reveal for Microsoft's new console.
As per Mike Ybarra, Corporate Vice President of the Xbox and Windows gaming platform, Project Scorpio is designed for "that premium customer, the gamer that expects the absolute best versions of the games" - so expect it to be priced accordingly.
Another report from the site suggests that it would cost $499 (around Rs. 32,200) — which is what the original Xbox One cost at launch in the US. The Xbox One launched in India for around Rs. 40,000. For what it's worth, the PS4 Pro costs $399 in the US (around Rs. 25,700) and is available in India for Rs. 38,990.
“The form factor of the console will pleasantly surprise you. As for cost, Microsoft told us absolutely nothing - but looking at what's in it, it ain't going to be cheap. Our guess, and it is just a guess, is $499, the same launch price as the original Xbox One.”
