Should have just put more memory in to begin with, leaves way too easy a path to be overtaken again in the not to distant future, and if Scorpio loses its "most powerful console" shtick, it loses everything.

Putting more memory bumps up the cost of the console. By your logic, they could put in 16 GB of GDDR5 and sell the console at $1000. I bet everyone would buy it then.

Do you realize you can buy GDDR5 modules in bulk for under $2 per 500mb module?, so you could bump a systems memory by 4gb for a BOM increase of at most, $16?

Do you think a BOM increase of $16 would increase the consoles price from the rumored $400 mark, to $1000?

*sigh*
