If that is the case, I do not understand their market position. Will wait to see presentation though. $499 is an astronomical buy in these days.

Welp no buy until $400 unless it comes with elite controller. Hoping there is a $450 or $00 sku

Uh oh. This will lead to some disappointment... So many were already sure it was 399 like the PS4 Pro.

On one hand. I want to think this is all some elaborate marketing stunt so we are all stunned when it's announced at $400.

That said. This is way too high imo.

Dam well I'm glad I have my one s. Guess I'll have to be content with lesser graphics.

With Xbox One S likely to be 249 or less with a game this fall (and PS4 Pros 399 or less) that's a tough sell to a lot of consumers, imo.

Not surprised I suppose.

I'll still buy it probably, they must have some good games planned.

This is the first time they haven't unveiled Forza before E3...they always showed it early. I'm incredibly curious as to what Forza 7 is going to be.

$700 CND, $800 with tax here in Ontario.

Good luck with that. Might as well just not release it here.

If Scorpio is $499, Sony can coast the rest of this generation.

I want COMPETITION.

It's healthy.

$499 Scorpio would be a mistake.

This is around what I expected, given the Pro is $400.

I'm not getting one, but I bought a Pro I'm very pleased with. For the tech packed in I feel it's reasonable.
