The Xbox One X, the upcoming new console from Microsoft, is setting out to become one of the most successful console launches for the company.
In a new statement released today, Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox One X is the most pre-ordered Xbox console ever, not a small feat considering only the Project Scorpio Edition has been made available for pre-order this week.
Sunday night in Germany we unveiled the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, a special edition console designed for our biggest fans. That night we launched pre-orders worldwide and we have been overwhelmed by your response.
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.
As the Project Scorpio Edition is sold-out in most countries, customers are having a hard time securing one. Things, however, are bound to change soon, as details on the console's standard edition and pre-orders will be coming next month.
Although our fans may no longer be able to pre-order the 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.
The Xbox One X console launches on November 7th.
