What would make you buy a Scorpio at launch?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What would make you buy a Scorpio at launch?

I will buy it day one.
Best visuals, best online network, best gaming franchise ever created (Halo) on it.

Everything they will announce at E3 is just icing on the cake.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

Only one game ? Madness.

I can think of a few games that would qualify here. Of course none of them would ever be a Scorpio exclusive.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

If every Sony exclusive all of a sudden became a Scorpio exclusive or, if the only consoles available were the Switch and Scorpio then I'd buy a Scorpio.

Add me if you want but let me know youre from this website

lol I know it's a gaming forum and thus incredibly biased towards people with niche gaming habits, but let's face facts. Games matter, not exclusives. Every GTA or CoD is more important than any exclusive. That has been proven time and time again. GTA, CoD, BF and FIFA (among many others) are bigger system sellers than Horizon, Forza or Dawn of War III. Unless the exclusive is a mega franchise like Halo, Gran Turismo or Mario Kart.
When consumers can play those multi plat games with far improved graphics at a price that can challenge a decent PC rig, then consumers will buy it.

It would have to be free or one of those 'too good to be true' deals for me to buy it (i.e., heavily, heavily discounted, and even then, I'd probably wouldn't buy it).



I will have the console Pre-ordered when I am able.

$199

Current X1 exclusive lineup isn't enough to justify paying anything more than that tbqh

This. I may buy the Scorpio one day, when it's cheap to finally play the X360 and Xbone exclusives in the best possible way, but my console shopping list looks like this:

Switch (after a decent and unavoidable revision of the hardware)
PS4 Pro Slim (really don't like the looks of PS4 Pro)
Scorpio

Only a crazy price of around 200 Euro could make me buy it this year.



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

Games I can't get on PS4. Conker 2, Lost Odyssey 2, new IPs etc

Already the pattern in those answers suggests that the general feeling towards the scorpio is, that the console is DOA. What is MS thinking? I mean they must have had given thoughts about the scorpio proposition in todays console market.
Obviously MS started designing and engineering the scorpio years ago, when it was hard to predict todays market, and they will stick to their plan by releasing it now. But why?
As there are no obvious incentives for gamers to buy it, even from XboxOne owners, what arre they doing?
Perhaps it is just a 'fill in the gap' mission to counter the PS4/Pro line, but where MS is not believing it will sell that much. It could therefore just be a pscyhological effect for consumers.

powa=sales

They think PS4 won cuz of 1080p, so they wanna own the 4K race, without actually going into next gen lol. They talk about performance profiles, shackling themselves to 2012 hardware. Yuuge mistake imo, they should've just made Xbox 2 with next gen games and pointed out it's also Xbone BC, capable of rendering them in 4K.

Console seen as true successor is gonna move more, much more hardware than an iterative model.

I think MS could've made a comeback with a true next gen console with 16GB ram, Vega and Zen even if it cost $499, so long as they can show a notable graphical upgrade over PS4 exclusives.

Just imagine the hype if they had something like Watch Dog 2012 demo to show at E3, even if proven bullshot later, all eyes will be on Xbox from that point.

I fear Scorpio is gonna get sandwiched between insane price cuts/deals on PS4, and a possible PS5 reveal 18-24 months from now on.

Very few people will switch platforms 3-4 years into a gen especially to one that's gonna be +$100 more expensive than the competition, and one that doesn't even do next gen graphics but upgraded current gen. Sony will advertise the biggest games this and next year, and PS4 as the best place to play them on, the mainstream won't even know about Scorpio.

Also PS4 has been beating Xbox in NPDs every month this year, so the exclusives that it got like Yakuza, Nioh, Horizon, Nier, MLB, Persona 5 have certainly helped. PS4 did +400K in March when Horizon launched.

I'm sure Sony has seen the numbers that their exclusives do help and positvely contribute to their lead else they wouldn't bother with them.
