Microsoft’s next generation gaming console, Xbox Project Scorpio, won’t be as expensive as many anticipated it to be. Price leaks for the upcoming Xbox Project Scorpio have just arrived and the cost of the gaming console won’t be as heavy as everyone believed it would be. During this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, Phil Spencer the head of Microsoft Xbox suggested that the technology being used on the Xbox Project Scorpio would be unlike anything anyone’s ever seen, a wide leap from the HDR and 4K offerings of the current Xbox One S. Rumors have also confirmed that Xbox Project Scorpio would be the best of the best, leading many to believe that the console would take a toll on the wallet as well.

Project Scorpio is arriving Holiday 2017, which means that, despite Microsoft’s Gaming Beyond Generations tagline, the next generation of console gaming is arriving far sooner than anyone would have expected. Skeptics will likely call this Microsoft throwing in the towel on the current generation of gaming after falling behind Sony in sales, but the continued support and cross-play with the Xbox One suggests otherwise.
