Leaks are going to happen in the gaming industry, no matter what. Earlier Geoff Keighley “confidently” confirmed that Project Scorpio will cost $499. Can his tweet even be considered a leak, though? Does that steal some thunder from Microsoft? Is confirming the price before the press conference a good thing? I guess so because the focus can be on the games and the console itself. Good move if they follow through.
I can now say with confidence Project Scorpio is $499. Unless something changes today, that is what will be announced.

Anthem was teased during EA’s press conference; the full trailer will debut during Microsoft’s press conference. Is that enough to make you want to invest $499 on a new console? If a new IP isn’t enough, maybe Middle Earth: Shadow of War will convince you? Sometimes all it takes is one familiar game to suck you in, and Middle Earth: Shadow of War was confirmed earlier this year to be coming to Project Scorpio.
During E3 all eyes are on the big boys to present their best and convince us gamers (consumers) on why we should give them our money. Every year one company manages to outshine the other, and this year we’re looking at you, Microsoft. Good luck.
Bring your best; the world will be watching.
