Microsoft today confirms that Xbox One X is the fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever. On Sunday in Germany, the software giant unveiled the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition. The company also opened pre-orders for the console ahead of its release on November 7, at $499.
According to the Xbox marketing chief Aaron Greenberg, “Within just a few days, 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.“
Aaron Greenberg on Xbox One X standard edition, “Although our fans may no longer be able to pre-order the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition in their country, we know people are still anxious to get their hands on the world’s most powerful console. We will be announcing details of the next wave of Xbox One X standard edition pre-orders next month so stay tuned for more information.”
There is no word when Microsoft will open pre-orders for the ‘standard edition’ of the console. The standard Xbox One X will also be priced at $499.
