After a long wait, Microsoft has finally revealed its final specifications for Project Scorpio which is the newest edition set to launch later this year to compliment your Xbox console. Despite revealing the information regarding the upcoming release, there is a lot of questions yet to be answered such as price, flagship software. It seems that the company is trying to sell the product with its ability of gameplay experiences in 4K.
DFC Intelligence head David Cole said, “Microsoft once was going to go after a broad consumer base but now they are stuck targeting the bleeding edge of game consumers that want the highest performing hardware and are more concerned with specs than actual games. In DFC’s latest report on upcoming games we noted that more and more developers are opting not to release Xbox One versions of their games this season. Project Scorpio does not give them reason to change that because it is really targeted towards core Xbox fans that are already converted. For Scorpio to succeed Microsoft somehow needs to convince non-Xbox owners to convert.”
Recently, Phil Spencer said that gamers will get a decent view of the impressive specifications as he is currently planning on giving all the flagship games enough attention during E3 showcase when more details will be released. As mentioned before, there is no word regarding the price and this key information might decide how well the company will be able to attract gamers. According rumors on internet though, it seems that the device will be sold around $500 which can be considered a good deal for the power it will bring to the gamers.
Whether Scorpio outsells PS4 is another question but Phil Spencer said last year that they are not planning on outselling the competitors as he said, “Our model’s not really built around selling you a new console every one or two years. The model is almost the exact opposite. Honestly, I’m not focused on doing things purely to outsell PS4 with our Xbox One. We’re doing things beyond that.”
That being said, we will surely learn more about the product in the upcoming days and if Microsoft meets the expectations, then it will surely be welcomed by everyone.
