    Out of the price and if it 479 euros I think it is ok. I am sure of one thing the specification of Scorpio GPU were probably a little improved...the rumor comes from someone working in the industry as an indie... And have nothing to do with this website...

    The most credible item from it is likely the following tidbits:

    Elite controllers will see a second revision, with the new model that will boast support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi range improved. $ 149 / € The price of the new Elite controllers, while the current will be cut to fifty dollars / euro and will cost $ 99 / €.

    Project Scorpio you can pre-order from ... Sunday, June 11, 2017, at the end of Microsoft's E3 conference. All-rehearsed.

    I remember reading some of his posts a few years ago when Xbox One first came out. It was exactly this style....conversational form with an "insider". I'm pretty sure it's just one person talking to himself...

    Okay I don't read the bullshit of misterxMedia, I was not knowing but like I said I heard Scorpio specification are a little better than the presentation last year (maybe better GPU frequency) and the price will probably be higher than PS4 Pro.. This is why it was credible imo...

    Elite controller revision with Bluetooth seems like a pretty safe bet. Highly skeptical they will cut the price though.

    I expect it to be a Raven Ridge/Ryzen APU too because of the timeframe as that's my common sense. But what do I know:)

    I think it's interesting that so many are talking with such certainty when MS just sent me an email survey last week asking me about what features were important to include in Scorpio.

    :mrgreen: it's fair to say that all in all, he is right. Those who started in the console world with a Xbox have been suffering for quite a few years now from erratic policies and bad CEOs and stuff and if they want to return to the path towards awesomeness Phil Spencer should do more than just say beautiful words to become the owner of your captive heart. I expect interesting things about Scorpio, very interesting, but maybe I am getting myself ready for disappointment. Time will tell. 2 months!!

    dunno, but those intimate interviews are usually hilarious. I can get some of the terms in Italian by context, but not all though.

    In addition, there is a report stating that the new Xbox is going to cost more than 400$.

    I'm more and more convinced that $449.99 could be the price of Scorpio.

    it the CPU is not Zen and it seems likely, 4k might be a possibility because the GPU looks very promising, but I'd very very worried about framerates, the biggest issue with a Jaguar byproduct.

    All it has to do is match the framerate of Xbox One version and then scale the resolution while maintaining that approximate frame rate. A lot of games are 30fps on consoles.

    I'm curious, what would people think if it's a slightly custom (or not custom at all) polaris Gpu, with an upclocked jaguar cpu?

    with it still being able to do everything they've said so far, simply due to the extra power?
    don't need zen to do it, don't need vega either.

    it depends on your preferences, maybe you can stand it, maybe you can't, but I am not sure I can stand another full generation at "console" framerates,30 fps is way too much to handle another full generation on average. I'd rather prefer 1080p 60 fps

    That might work for the launch period. You could always drop to $399 in early 2018 when demand softens.These are promium customers anyway, 50 bucks for six months extra of the fastest thing around isn't so bad.

    Is BOM likely to be more than $150 higher than the X1S though? ~$40 more for Ram, ~$80 more for silicon (assuming 400 mm^2 ish), +10 for cooler, +10 for power, +10 for 1TB HDD? Something like that?

    $400 might still be possible, given that we're already around $300 for the 1TB X!S on BOM and 16 nm is only going to get cheaper as phones start to move to 10 nm and 7gHz GDDR5 become more and more the baseline for consumer GPUs.

    The people who rush in will be those likely to spend on XBox Live Gold and buy numerous games. If MS are willing to take a slight haircut I could see then try and squeeze in at $399. And that's not bad value considering all TFs and UHDs and RAMs stuffed in there.

    Well thats up to the developers. I expect the standard practice for Scorpio will be like PS4 Pro in that there will be essentially the same settings/performance at a higher res. If they add 1080p 60fps mode it will be secondary.
