Michael Patcher has relaunched a new round of predictions, this time related to the future price of Xbox Scorpio and movements that Sony will make to try to curb the impact of the new console from Microsoft. According to the analyst, the platform of the company of Redmond will come at a price of about $399.

Michael Pachter, the famous analyst of video game, has launched new predictions for what will happen in 2017. Next year, Microsoft will deliver to the general public Project Scorpio, its first 4K console, which according to Pachter does not exceed the price of $399.

If confirmed, it would be a very competitive price considering the power that has been repeated by active and by passive that will have and that several rumors and analysts pointed to prices that could oscillate between the 600 and the thousand dollars. But Patcher has not stopped here and also explained what Sony will do during 2017 to try to minimize the arrival of the new Xbox Scorpio.

According to the analyst, there are two movements that seem clear to the Japanese company. On the one hand, to lower the price of PS4 Slim to $199 by Christmas 2017. For the other, official price drop on Playstation 4 Pro, the model that in principle has to compete with Scorpio, before it is officially launched for the sale.
