With the Xbox One X gaining interest since its official unveiling at E3 2017 earlier this year, Microsoft has announced pre-orders for the limited Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition.
The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition features a custom design with the words “Project Scorpio” printed on the console and the controller and we’ve incorporated a sophisticated and dynamic graphic pattern across the exterior. Fans who have been with us since the very start of Xbox will notice the packaging is inspired by the original Xbox. The Project Scorpio Edition also comes with an exclusive vertical stand so you can choose how to display it in your home.
The Xbox One X (and the Project Scorpio Edition) offer gamers true 4K gaming with 40 percent more power and 60 percent more memory “than any other console.” Even if you don’t have a 4K UHD TV, Microsoft claims that existing titles will look better, even on a 1080p screen. Over 100 new and existing games are slated to be enhanced to take advantage of the full power of the Xbox One X.
