Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X Scorpio Edition at Gamescom 2017 yesterday and the pre-orders went live shortly after the conference. The limited edition of the console is listed at $499 USD and there is limited supply so you better get to it if you want to buy it.
Major Nelson said:
“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 2017 earlier this year, the code-name 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 limited edition of the console features a custom “Project Scorpio” logo on the front along with a couple of other design changes, there’s also an exclusive vertical stand for the console in the box.
“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 drops in markets later this year so be on the lookout for pre-orders on the Scorpio edition and the normal one if you’re interested in getting it. Be sure to stay tuned!
