Project Scorpio won’t go head-to-head with high end rigs
In an interview with AusGamers, the question was posed to Phil Spencer that most of the gaming world would like an answer for: What will it cost? He explained that Project Scorpio wasn’t designed to compete with high-end PC rigs in terms of raw power and as such, will have a console price point.
With the launch of the PS4 Pro, Xbox fans are patiently awaiting news on what the new console will have to offer. With Project Scorpio tentatively scheduled for release during the holiday season of 2017 (probably early 2018 for official release in South Africa, if we’re lucky) and it being tipped as the most powerful console ever conceived, so it’s understandable that there would be great concern with the price point.

We’re hoping to get more info on the full specification at E3 2017, with the last reveal boasting 4K gaming, although developers will have the ability to choose how the consoles power will be utilised, native 4K resolution won’t be mandatory.
With approximately 6 teraflops of computing power compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro’ 4.2, 320Gb/s of memory bandwidth and an unspecified eight-core CPU, I’m sure many are anxiously awaiting more detailed development plans for AAA title and exclusives alike.
