$400-$500 is probably more likely.. $400 would be a home run IMO..

I agree with this. At $400-500 I'm in. At > $500 though, it becomes a wait and see.

400 is the absolute minimum given the PS4 Pro pricing unless they're willing to take a very sizable hit. But even then their words suggest it's going to be priced as a 'premium' product, so that suggests 400 or above.

beefier Xbox One that improves old games sounds great. i'm still out though unless exclusives stop appearing on PC.

"full 4K" means "native 4K"?
expectations should still be in check, especially when comparisons are being made to a GTX1070.
a $1000 PC can't play all games at 4K60 and FM series historically makes compromises to maintain its framerate.

Native 4K, + 4K assets, with headroom to spare. But that's true about Forza, it's an optimized engine with obvious compromises (static crowds, lack of dynamic weather, etc.) Still, getting it to 4K with 2 days work is impressive and bodes well for the system.

At $400, I'd probably judge it as a "wait for a bit" scenario for anyone that already owns a console in the generation. I would think (and can easily be wrong) that they'll clear through interested buyers at that pricepoint pretty quickly, and that the price would soon drop to down into the $300-$350 range before too long (but maybe I'm kidding myself). If it comes out with some significant wow factor, this all changes a bit.

Personal circumstances all make the calculation different though, of course. If you don't have a gaming PC or like gaming on the PC, and if you don't already have a console, and if you have shiny new 4K TV -- all of those circumstances lean in favor of picking up a Scorpio

Confirmed. CD is here to make sure whatever month Scorpio comes that it will be topping the NPD charts

Good stuff from Microsoft, at 399 this sounds like a good option. But if it's 499 like Digital Foundry says then it will struggle in my opinion.
