Michael Pachter is an analyst at Wedbush Securities. He is perhaps the most popular analyst in the console gaming market. According to Michael Pachter, the upcoming behemoth from Microsoft, the Xbox Scorpio, is going to cost $399.
In the most recent episode of his show called “Pachter Factor”, he says that the Xbox Scorpio is going to cost $399. He also made a lot of other predictions on Microsoft’s E3 2017 briefing.
If you want to hear Pachter’s thoughts on the pricing of the Xbox Scorpio, skip to the 2:15 mark. Michael Pachter reckons that the Xbox Scorpio is going to cost $399. According to Pachter, if Microsoft prices their upcoming console above $399, they’re not going to do well in the console market with the Xbox Scorpio.
“I think that if Microsoft comes up with $399 price point, it has a chance of remaining quite relevant to cycle. If they’re above $399, I think they’re going to have a problem. I think that that company [Microsoft] is composed of a bunch of smart people. I think they understand their customer, I don’t think that they’re going to price themselves out of the market.”
– Said Pachter in the latest episode of “Pachter Factor”.
Microsoft will reveal the Xbox Scorpio in all its glory at their E3 2017 briefing next week. According to Microsoft’s Phil Spencer, the Xbox Scorpio is going to be a “premium console”. This means that the price of the Xbox Scorpio is going to be higher than the current consoles.
