The Xbox Scorpio is coming Holiday 2017 and many people are thinking it will be a lot more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro. Not only do they think it will be more powerful, but the pricing maybe a bit crazy when it comes to the Scorpio.
Phil Spencer hints that Xbox Scorpio is a premium console addressing requirements from high-end customers, will have “higher price” because of that, at least more than Xbox One S.

“Scorpio will be a premium console. It will cost more than S, obviously, this is how we are building it up. We have not announced the pricing yet, but want to make sure that the investment we are making in the product of Scorpio goes hand in hand with the requirement of high-end consumer and that means a higher price,” said Spencer, adding that “There is not a single product you see and say ‘this is the product that defines how you are doing in the market’. It really is the repertoire of all products with prices and when we think of Scorpio it is for a high-end consumer who demands the maximum of a console, and the console built to meet that demand.”

He also added this: “it would be a “Suicide” from Microsoft if Xbox Scorpio is priced more than $399.”
What price could this console be set at? It’s going to be tough as Microsoft wants it to be realistic to fans but at the same time they don’t want to lose money.
