    Okay so last week we got to enjoy the spec sheet of Scorpio and some in depth coverage by Digital Foundry.

    In the wake of this the whole gaming community has been awoken it seems. I've seen a lot of talk about the console and how it stacks to PS4 pro and even the Switch (for some reason...)

    There's two things we don't know yet that are almost synonymous with the spec sheet it seems; the looks and price.

    This thread is bout the price. We've all seen the articles. 'Scorpio should be no more than $599 to sell well', 'Anything more than $499 and the price gap with PS4 Pro will be too big to close the console sales gap' and so on.

    I thought, lemme get to the competition lounge and start a competition of how much you think the console will retail for.

    Rules are:

    1) you may only have a range of $50
    2) you may change your price point until the price is actually revealed/leaked
    3) you may state your decisionmakings

    Let the games begin. Let's see how competitive you guys are

    £400/450 A years wait & now knowing that they've used Jaguar (but not as we know it) & some in house customisation, have kept some costs down. The One S 500gb is around £200-250 with a game. Scorpio being a premium product being twice the price is about fair. Also they need to stay somewhere near to the PS4 Pro.

    I'm basically going to steal 1xbox's answer because I think it's about right.

    So I will guess 399.99 - 449.99


    EDIT I'm taking it as a given that Donny is buying one for the person with the closest guess. What a guy

    $650-700


    Are we talking about the cheapest one available? If so I would say $550.

    I hope you are wrong sir, but fear you may be right (I know what I guessed).

    It would appear the Scorpio is not here for Microsoft to win this generations console war, its simply Microsoft flexing their muscles to show Sony they have some of the best engineers in the world.

    Who knows maybe they will offer a fabulous exchange program for upgrading

    I'm also like [MENTION=5587]Morrison[/MENTION] in the 650-700 dollar/euro range and probs 500-550 pound range xD.

    Reasons...

    1) the scorpio will directly compete with mid range gaming rigs. Despite that, it won't have the same price tag. I dunno if he spoke of beginning mid range prices or not, but beginning mid range price starts at 750-800 bucks.

    2) premium product. Premium things are expensive. Just look at the elite controller. 150 bucks. I can't imagine the Scorpio being less than 4 times that amount. That's just a guess.

    3) it won't compete with the PS4 Pro and therefore it doesn't need to have a similar price tag to match that thing. It's like [MENTION=3781]moonrat[/MENTION] says: it's MS flexing their engineering muscles while dealing stress and PTSD that makes it see it's girlfriend... wait srry, that's Isaac Clarke from Dead Space (had to do it because of the Engineering) xD. But yea read moonrat's comment

    4) I see this as seperate, but it's not a device that's supposed to close the salesgap between ps4 and xbox one! The salesgap will frankly not close this generation. It might get tighter, but unless sony just bombs everything and MS uplifts everything, I don't see the gap closing.

    5) I can still go on if I want, just tell mi if you want me to xD
