Microsoft has recently revealed the Xbox One X – The Project Scorpio Edition at the Gamescom expo in Germany. Microsoft is already taking pre-orders for the console, the device is expected to ship in November.
Priced at $499, Xbox One X is receiving good response from the customers. Microsoft claimed that Xbox One X is the fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever and the company already expects the console to be a hit product.
Microsoft managed to sell all the Xbox One X at Amazon in around 25 minutes. As the holiday season is ahead, we can expect the numbers to increase. Microsoft noted that the response had been overwhelming.
Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Xbox proudly stated that Xbox One is the fastest selling pre-order ever. “We saw record-setting sell-out times and are currently sold out in many countries around the world. You, our biggest fans, have pre-ordered more Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles in the first five days than any Xbox ever,” Nichols said.
While on other hand, Microsoft seems to have stopped selling the original Xbox One as the company is no longer stocking the console. It makes sense after all as one would buy the Xbox One X over the original console.
