Phil Spencer Shines Light On Xbox Scorpio Pricing And Audience
Microsoft has been keeping us in the dark regarding Xbox Scorpio for some time now and finally the big boss himself has given us a few new details regarding the Xbox Scorpio. Phil Spencer talked about the pricing and the target audience for the Xbox Scorpio and what he has to say is interesting.
In an interview, Phil Spencer has said that Xbox Scorpio will be a premium product which means that it will cost more than the current Xbox One S. He also talked about how the upcoming console will cater to the high-end consumer.
Although pricing and availability of Xbox Scorpio have not been announced as of right now. It has been cleared up that the console will be relatively expensive. So if you were thinking of playing native 4K games for the same price of the PS4 Pro then you can throw that thought out the window. The big boss has made it pretty clear that Xbox Scorpio will be costly and will not be something for everyone.
Talking about something for everyone Spencer also talked about how one product does not define the company and how many people are buying the Xbox One S while other are still buying the original Xbox One due to the better price.
It seems that the way forward for Xbox is not a single product but a variety of products. This makes it even more clear that the Xbox One S will be catering to the masses and Xbox Scorpio will be reserved for high-end users that want native 4K and can afford to pay the price that comes along with such a powerful console.
2016 is coming to an end and we have yet to see what Project Scorpio actually has to offer. We might get some more news early next year.
