I'm thinking $500. Due to improvements in production and such. Gotta remember theses graphics cards have a huge mark up. The true costs of the gtx 980/1080 could be as low as $150, MS could have made a deal guaranteeing X number will be purchased which would drop the price possibly further to $100.

So what are your guesses on the retail price of the Scorpio?

why do people like this game? I'm not hating. I'm genuinely curious as to why people like this game.

@awkwardblobfish: Are you really serious with your questions? First there is no ay they are going to attempt to sell it at $800. I'm looking for $500 tops, Maybe even $450., Maybe even $300 with a trade-in of the current XB1. Second, Its common knowledge they have dropped the Kinect and will not be reviving it. Its ridiculous to think they would.

@FreedomFreeLife: you do realize that the console crowd and PC gamer are almost two different demographics right? People buy consoles, because their friends buy consoles. they are simple plug and play , no worries. A console gamer is not suddenly going to stop playing on console and stop playing with friends because of this new option by MS? Only the hard core gamers play on PC AND OR have a console as well.

I care more about the game mechanics than I do about looks. The movement was ridiculously sluggish in the beta. It played very much like GOW2. But yeah, I was disappointed with how the beta looked. It looked like it was made for the 360 and was just ported to the XB1.

Actually I think once all the old gen (360,PS3) games are done with remasters I don't expect we will see any more. As someone stated above. With what they are going to do with consoles and new games making them scalable. there wil be no need for remasters. This next gen with Scorpio could be the last gen console we see for a very long time as the visuals are said to be equal to a gtx 980 video card. As graphics get better and better. It will be harder to sell games based on newer graphics alone. the gen that replaces the Scorpio will have to have graphics equal to visuals in the movie Avatar to get people interested. Its similar to selling a 4K Tv to a casual consumer that already have a 1080P tv. Its a hard sell because its not that much of a difference from the CASUAL consumer's view. Most casual consumers don't notice the difference between 720p and 1080P. You basically have to stand beside them and show both TVs showing the same thing for them to notice and even then most will just shrug their shoulders.

@Archangel3371: I really like it too. ITs not perfect. But its obviously not as popular as COD or Battlefield. there is a on going debate on Halowaypoint about sprint being in the game vs not being in the game. There are some old School players that insist that sprint is what has ran away fans to go play other games. Which I simply refuse to accept. Simply because most modern shooters have sprint- COD, Battlefield, Battlefront, Killzone, etc. IF players are not buying Halo 5 because of that then what are they playing? Overwatch and Doom I guess as neither of them have sprint. But Doom is so ridiculously fast you don't need sprint as you are sprinting not walking. I'm just trying to get some feedback from players that are not on Waypoint.
