Console Wars: Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony Go Head to Head Again!Tuesday, October 04, 2016
Microsoft is releasing the much anticipated Xbox Scorpio which rumor has it it's going to be a beast of a console game machine. Problem is that the Xbox Scorpio has no release date as of yet and the hardware development is still in its infancy. As far as I can tell, we may be looking at Christmas of 2017 when the Xbox Scorpio is finally released to the public, which is a long time.
As far as pricing, here are the numbers:
- NX: £350 ($440)
- Scorpio: £450-£500 ($570-640) estimated
- PS4 Pro: £310 ($400)
- PSVR: £360 ($460), including the PlayStation Camera which is sold separately
- If you own an Xbox 360, Xbox One or PS4 would you consider forking out £350 upgrading to a PS4 Pro, Xbox Scorpio or PSVR?
- Is console gaming that much better than PC gaming?
Even more fascinating is being able to play old Nintendo games on a PlayStation. If you own a PlayStation (PS) Vita with the v3.60 firmware installed, you can turn the PS Vita into a retro console emulator. All you have to do is go to the HENkaku website and click install.
