Project Scorpio price

We are in the final hours before Microsoft’s E3 presentation, and the hype train is moving at such an accelerated rate, it’s about to fly off the rails. Of course, what will likely be the biggest announcement at this year’s expo is the official reveal of Project Scorpio. It is speculated that it will be the most powerful console to date, and the specs surely point in that direction. However, its internals are all that is currently known. We don’t know the Project Scorpio price point, the actual name, or even what its final form will look like.

Thanks to the almighty Dorito Pope himself Geoff Keighley, we might now know what the Scorpio price being announced today is. Taking to Twitter in preparations of the expo, Keighley stated that the new Xbox console will be $499 at launch. Shortly after he tweeted this, he said “with confidence” that the Scorpio price will be exactly that. Check out the tweets below:

If this proves to be true, Project Scorpio will launch at the same price the Xbox One did back in 2014. Since then, the price has dropped for the console, especially after the Xbox One S arrived. In fact, if you’re in the market for a new Xbox, the S model is currently on sale with a $50 discount. You can read more about that here.

Microsoft’s E3 presentation is set to begin at 2 PM PT, and it is projected to be quite lengthy. Have to fit all of the Scorpio goodness in somehow, right? Plus, a plethora of games are sure to make an appearance. To keep in the know, be sure to stay tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers.
