Xbox One X pre-orders are now live. Officially announced at E3 2017, the new gaming console is finally available for pre-order. The Xbox One X price in UK is £449.99 on Amazon.co.uk and releases internationally on November 7.
Microsoft put the Project Scorpio edition up for pre-order at the end of August but they sold out quickly. Don’t fret though, you can still get a standard Xbox One and standard edition with Forza 7 on launch day as that’s now available for pre-order too.
Pre-ordering is crucial if you’re looking to obtain the Xbox One X console which Microsoft claims is in limited supply. Each Xbox One X comes with a 1TB internal hard drive, a wireless Xbox controller, HDMI cable, power supply, a one-month Xbox Game Pass subscription, and a 14-day free Xbox Live Gold membership.
The Xbox One X may not have amassed as many pre-orders as Microsoft’s marketing machine wants you to believe, according to analyst Michael Pachter. He explains this by saying that Microsoft is marketing the new console to a team of 30-35 million Xbox Live Gold members, and that is why it’s heavily pre-ordered.
The analyst, who is known for his strong opinions and know-how of the video games industry, has claimed that the term “fastest selling Xbox pre-order ever” doesn’t mean much. The larger point here is that even though the Microsoft has received a lot of Xbox One X pre-orders, it’s mostly the enthusiast crowd going for it at the moment. People who are on the fence about this console at the moment should probably not be swayed by marketing spiel.
