The price is just one of the unknown variables about Project Scorpio we're expecting to hear about at E3 2017 in just a matter of hours, but one industry professional is now confident that he knows what it's going to be.
I can now say with confidence Project Scorpio is $499. Unless something changes today, that is what will be announced.I can now say with confidence Project Scorpio is $499. Unless something changes today, that is what will be announced.— Geoff Keighley (@geoffkeighley) June 11, 2017June 11, 2017
Keighley is the creator of The Game Awards and is responsible currently for the YouTube E3 live coverage, and is far from a random hack. It's also pretty much in line with some of our own Jez Corden's predictions.

In the meantime, sound off in the comments below with your thoughts on a $499 price tag for Scorpio. Too much? About right for all the awesomesauce within? Let us know what you think!
