At Gamescom 2017, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition. The special edition console is designed for the biggest Xbox gaming fans and rightly so kicked off pre-orders worldwide.
According to Microsoft, Xbox One X has seen an overwhelming response from gaming enthusiasts with record-setting sell-out times. In fact, recent reports suggested the Xbox One X has already taken over the PlayStation 4 Pro as the #1 best seller on Amazon.
This also makes the Xbox One X the fastest selling Xbox ever, in the first five days of sales, why not?
“Microsoft has done it again! The innovation and power behind the new Xbox One X console is driving excitement and demand among our customers worldwide,” said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of Merchandising for GameStop. “The speed at which we sold through our initial pre-order supply surpassed expectations, and what we experienced with pre-orders for the original Xbox One console. This new system is definitely going to change how video games are played!” – GameStop
“A great piece of tech with a great onrush. Microsoft’s high-end console hits the hearts and minds of our console fans. We were absolutely astonished with the run on Microsoft`s new flagship console of the Xbox One family. The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition was the fastest sold-out Xbox console ever.” – Media Markt
Although the special edition pre-orders quickly went out of stock, Microsoft will be sharing more details of the next wave of Xbox One X standard edition coming month.
