Xbox One X Pre-Orders Available Today; “Project Scorpio Edition” Officially Announced





Pre-Order the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition Now

Today we unveiled the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition designed for fans who want to be the first to experience the world’s most powerful console – and it’s available for pre-order now for $499 USD until supplies run out.

When we announced Project Scorpio last year, we were overwhelmed by the excitement from our fans. And although we revealed Project Scorpio as Xbox One X at E3 earlier this year, the codename will live on in the Scorpio Engine that powers the console, as well as in this limited edition console. We designed the Project Scorpio Edition for fans to celebrate both our heritage and the power and precision that we are bringing into our future.

The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition features a custom design with the words “Project Scorpio” printed on the console and the controller and we’ve incorporated a sophisticated and dynamic graphic pattern across the exterior. Fans who have been with us since the very start of Xbox will notice the packaging is inspired by the original Xbox. The Project Scorpio Edition also comes with an exclusive vertical stand so you can choose how to display it in your home.

We’ll only have a limited number of Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles, and they will only be available as part of this pre-order. Get them now before they’re gone forever by pre-ordering from your local retailer, including Microsoft Store or Microsoft.com.

We are counting down to the launch of Xbox One X later this year and look forward to getting the world’s most powerful console into the hands of our fans. With 40 percent more power and 60 percent more memory for game developers than any other console, get ready to experience immersive true 4K gaming. Your games play better on Xbox One X and blockbuster titles look great, run smoothly, and load quickly even on a 1080p screen. And excitement and developer commitment for Xbox One X has grown since E3 and, to date, more than 100 new and existing games will be enhanced for Xbox One X to take advantage of its full power.

Xbox One X also works with all your existing Xbox One games and accessories and we’re thrilled to welcome it to the Xbox One family of devices joining Xbox One S. For fans looking for the best value in gaming and entertainment, Xbox One S continues to deliver and we just announced two new bundles joining the ranks – the Xbox One S Shadow of War bundles and the Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition bundle. Both Xbox One X and Xbox One S are built to take advantage of 4K entertainment, too, and include an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, 4K video streaming and HDR for videos and gaming.
