Michael Pachter has doubts about the price of Project Scorpio, Microsoft
Believe that it can be an aspect of conflict to the next console.
The analyst Michael Pachter has been shown critical with the possible plans of Microsoft in the face Project Scorpio, console they plan to launch next year while maintaining continuity with the Xbox One, but offering native support for 4K resolution and virtual reality.
In statements given to GamingBolt, the always controversial Pachter believes that the price of PlayStation 4 Pro can be a problem for Microsoft and Scorpio. “Well, I think that Microsoft would be committing suicide if [Project Scorpio]was worth more than $ 399”, in clear reference to the selling price of the review of the PlayStation 4 from Sony.
But not only that: “And the problem will be if they launch the console at $ 399 is that PS4 Pro could lose up to $ 349 in the same week. So it wouldn’t surprise me much that Vehicle costs more than $ 399″.
however, Pachter admits that the price could be higher, because you are surprised with the launch price of the Xbox One. “I was very surprised when the Xbox One launched at $ 499 with Kinect, and took them a while to remove the Kinect from the pack and lower the price“.
For these reasons, the analyst believes that “Microsoft has not executed well this cycle of consoles in regards to the price, just as Sony did wrong with the price of the PlayStation 3. So now Microsoft has to overcome, and I hope not to commit the same error with Scorpio that already made with Xbox One“.
