Microsoft only had information about the Project Scorpio hardware specifications released. This now seems to inspire the analysts and fans. Two groups have now spoken out and given their assessment of the success of the new console.
Mat Piscatella, an analyst for the NPD Group, believes Project Scorpio has great potential, but has also expressed some concerns. The console has far stronger technical arguments than the competition, but ultimately the range of games is decisive for Piscatella. “Consumers buy consoles primarily to play games. If the range of games on offer is not large and varied enough, the Scorpio will consequently not be able to establish and establish itself in the mass market, ”explains the analyst.
David Cole of DFC Intelligence, however, has a different opinion about Project Scorpio and Microsoft's target audience. According to his assessment, Microsoft does not want to conquer the mass market at all, but rather to establish itself as a niche product. Thus the target group would not be the general gamer, but the technically interested buyer who is proud of what is under the hood.
We will certainly have to wait and see which of the two opinions will come true in the end. However, new information could shed some light on this.
