Xbox Project Scorpio Pricing + Exploding iPhone & More

Xbox Project Scorpio Pricing Revealed: We already knew that next year’s new Xbox — codenamed Scorpio — is going to be a beefed up 4K console which Microsoft is calling the most powerful console ever. But as of today we also know to expect premium pricing as Phil Spencer, the guy in charge of all things Xbox, who was quoted as saying “I think you will feel like it’s a premium product and not anything more than that. So I wouldn’t get people worried that this thing is giong to be unlike any console price you’ve ever seen.” If you ask me that probably places the Scorpios price somewhere between $399 and $599. Source

Exploding iPhone: An iPhone 6s apparently caught fire while it was in the back pocket of a New Jersey student’s jeans. Luckily the student wasn’t hurt although he did say he felt a “crazy, hot burning” on his leg. It’s best to prepare yourself now for all the iPhone is ripping off Samsung with the exploding phone thing jokes. Source

Google Pixel Leak: Google’s announcing two new phones tomorrow: the Pixel and the Pixel XL — we knew that already, but thanks to a UK business that posted the specs ahead of time we now know most of the details. Both devices will get free unlimited photo storage at max resolution, will be powered by Snapdragon 821 CPUs with 4GB of RAM and will feature AMOLED displays. They’re also going to look just as boring as the new iPhone 7. Source
