You like quickies ? I’ll give you a fast one, don’t worry.
I can now say with confidence Project Scorpio is $499. Unless something changes today, that is what will be announced.

Geoff Keighley known for hosting the Video Game Awards is at E3 and is known for having good connections and for being a relaible source of information. So while not official until later today, we can most likely expect the Xbox Scorpio (if that’s even still the name) to be $500 USD upon launch.
To my surprise, this price has caught quite a few people off guard who thought the console would be cheaper. Personally, I didn’t think for a moment since the Scorpio was announced that it’d be under 500, especially with all the power, hardware, and specs.
And like Xbox has said a few times before, this is for people who are on the more serious/hardcore side of gaming. You didn’t need to spend 150$ on a controller but if you wanted to, you could, same goes for this console. They know their target audience.
