Not much is known surrounding the ominous project Scorpio, just fragmented tweets and statements, with the latest being the possible price point of Microsoft’s upcoming console.
According to a listing on Spanish retailer Xtralife.es, the Scorpio will be priced at 399.99 €. Neogaf user eso76 managed to get hold of the image showcasing the listing. Since then the listing has been removed from the website, indicating that the price of the Scorpio could very well be accurate – or Microsoft intends to keep online speculation at a minimum until launch.
Did the listing actually exist? The folks at Gamingbolt went ahead and verified it’s integrity and it seems the listing did at this url (https://www.xtralife.es/project-scorpio/project-scorpio/23531).
In other fragment Xbox Scorpio news, we already have 2 hopefully confirmed titles that will support the Scorpio:
Open-world RPG developer giant, Bethesda, has confirmed that Fallout 4 and Skyrim will receive a patch to support the Xbox Scorpio.
The news came from Todd Howard, the director and executive producer at Bethesda, revealing the Xbox Scorpio patch to Glixel.
“We just wrapped up updating Fallout 4 for the PS4 Pro. We’re used to that in the PC world. We can update the games, and people keep playing it. Microsoft’s Scorpio is coming next year, and we’ll update Fallout 4 and Skyrim for that. That’s our hope, that these consoles keep that spirit going forward,” clarified Howard.
What do you think of this listing? The pricepoint a fairly accurate assumption? Considering the continous boasting of the platforms hardware capabilities, I think that price is considerably accurate, time will tell.
The Scorpio will be revealed during this year’s E3.
