Microsoft clearly has an early hit on it hands, and Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Xbox Mike Nichols happily declares today that Xbox One X is the fastest selling Xbox pre-order ever. "Within just a couple of days, we saw record-setting sell-out times and are presently sold out in numerous countries all over the world," shared the exec. "You, our greatest fans, have pre-ordered more Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles in the very first five days than any Xbox ever."
If you missed your chance to pre-order the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition this week, do not worry: the Xbox team will share information of the next wave of Xbox One X standard edition pre-orders next month, so more lovers will have the ability to get their console on November 7.
In other Xbox One X-related news, the new console got the gamescom 2017 award for best hardware this week, which is most likely well-deserved: if the new console is almost six times more powerful than the Xbox One S, it has a slightly smaller sized body and retained the Xbox One S internal power brick, which is truly great. As Nichols says it, "there's truly never been a better time to be an Xbox gamer,".
