That same argument could be made when the PS5 launches. Scropio will be a very capable box that's cheaper and it will share games with the next Xbox.

PS4 Pro specs upgrade just wasn't big enough. They should have made a better upgrade for $499. It would have been more capable, more desired, and the average user on budget would have bought a PS4 Slim anyway.

Sony hasn't made many mistakes this gen, but PS4 Pro underdelivered.

So you're assuming the next xbox upgrade will be dragged down by those games having to work on scorpio as well as xboxnext?

Not sure that's an ideal scenario for MS right there.

I do agree in wishing Sony had gone for a $500 upgrade though, especially if those $100 extra were spent on the processor. In any case it seems it wasn't in the cards as the scorpio will also be keeping Jaguar.

Here's my prediction. X1 and Scropio will be required to share games until the next X1. At that point developers can choose to not support the original X1 hardware.

I anticipate Scorpio will be a very capable machine even for 2021 standards. Since new consoles (upgrades) come so quickly and with less financial risks that means the upgrades are gonna be smaller.

In a nutshell, I'm saying Scorpio should be able to handle PS5 and Next X1 content at a lower resolution and maybe lower graphics settings.

How powerful will PS5 really be? Especially if launches in 2020 and Sony wants to hit $399-$499 without losing money on hardware. At best maybe it will be 12TF?
