Project Scorpio ought to cost under $400 as per Michael Pachter

Microsoft’s Project Scorpio’s reveal is approaching not too far off. Wedbush Securities Analyst Michael Pachter clarified that it shouldn’t be evaluated over $399. He likewise raised the likelihood of a $349 PS4 Pro by Christmas in a meeting on Gamertag Radio.

Michael Pachter feels that if Microsoft prices Project Scorpio higher than $399, they have an issue. This is in accordance with his feedback about the insane price of the Nintendo switch. This despite the fact that he recognizes the equipment is entirely capable and that they’re attempting to construct a gigantic update on the Xbox One.

In the event that the Xbox One S will continue to be $300 by Christmas (Pachter doesn’t think it will be) then Microsoft may have the guts to charge more than $399. Be that as it may, Sony laid the gauntlet down with the cost of PS4 Pro. Besides, he doesn’t see Microsoft charging more for Project Scorpio. On the off chance that they do, will need to clarify why it’s better. Also, if Sony is keen – and Pachter trusts that they are – they’ll drop the cost of PS4 to $349 for the Holidays.

    I don’t see it being less than 400 I can see it 499 to 699 but not 399 or less. With the new tech in there from AMD alone and accounting for whole sale prices and not retail, if they use Ryzen and Vega chip set and gddr5 ram the 4k Blu-ray drive and a 1tb hard drive (because we all know that is not even enough) the cost would be about 450 to 500 not to count cost of labor and casings wires ect. If Xbox dose bring the price to 399 they would be taking a big hit on profit margins not that they could not afford to take a small hit but when the price is 25% roughly lower than the cost of whole sale parts not to mentioning the casing and odds and end parts wires ect then we are talking about a big hit overall. Don’t get me wrong 399 is a great price but they are already going to use the 4K Blu-ray drive that Sony, who owns the tech, did not put in the PS4 Pro but new AMD hardware that can compete other apu and gpu sets. (although what we seen was a demo and not real world applications) Xbox could charge more for the system and I think anyone who thinks other wise has not thought about the whole sale cost of the parts used to create a system with these specs. Ryzen cost has not been set but retail they are looking at 599 so retail markup is 40 to 60% thinking this at an extreme cost would be about 250 to 300 at least and runs amazingly, can compete with intel. Day one could be 699 and still be in the console price point considering that day one consoles have sold for up to 800 US, So what are you willing to pay that is the real question?
