The pre-order season is officially open! Microsoft recently announced that you can now pre-order your very own Xbox One X. The first pre-orders will be targeted at the limited edition of the console which is the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition.
Project Scorpio is the Xbox One X
Last year, during the E3 2016 gaming expo, Microsoft unveiled its amazing Project Scorpio which was supposed to be the most powerful console and of all times in the whole world and fans went crazy with exhilaration.
Now, at E3 2017 Microsoft ditched the Scorpio name, and the company proudly announced that the console would be released this November as the Xbox One X. Microsoft also said that the new Xbox would be priced at $499.
On the other hand, just a few days ago, some rumors emerged flying around saying that the codename – Project Scorpio – will return. Project Scorpio was set to come back along with a special edition of the fabulous new Xbox.
And finally, at Gamescom 2017, Microsoft officially revealed the surprise: the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition!
The console sports a unique Scorpio branding which is quite similar to the early Day One Edition console that the company launched for its original Xbox One launch back in 2013 and the more recent Xbox One S Launch Edition.
The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition
Microsoft made it very clear that the number of Xbox One X Project Scorpio consoles is limited as it’s targeted at the biggest fans of the console. Once the stocks are depleted, the ‘standard’ version of the Xbox One X will remain available for pre-order.
It’s up to you what you prefer; if you want to get your hands of the special edition variant, hurry like the wind to pre-order your very own Xbox One X Project Scorpio Special Edition now.
