Microsoft had announced the Xbox One X console at its E3 press conference earlier this year. The company has now announced a special edition for the One X, similar to the Xbox One Day One Edition. This time, the special edition has been christened the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition. It is now up for pre-order for $499 (Rs.31,900 approx.) and will begin shipping on November 7th. In the US, the Xbox One Project Scorpio Edition can be pre-ordered at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, as well as the Microsoft store online.
The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition boasts a custom design with “Project Scorpio” printed on it as well as the controller. Another differentiating feature is a sophisticated and dynamic graphic pattern all across the exterior of the console. Some of the other neat touches include a packaging inspired by the original Xbox and an exclusive vertical stand. While Microsoft hasn’t given out any specific number, it did say that there will only be a limited number of Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles available, so if live in the US, we suggest placing your order as soon as possible.
As far as launch titles are concerned, Crackdown 3 has apparently been delayed and is now expected to be debut in spring next year. That means Xbox One X owners will have to settle with titles like Forza Motorsport 7, Cuphead, Super Lucky’s Tale, and Battlegrounds. While Forza 7 and Cuphead will be released before the Xbox One X goes on sale, Super Lucky’s Tale is set to launch the same day as the Xbox One X on November 7th.
Although priced $100 higher than Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One X is more powerful with 6 teraflops of graphics power. Microsoft, in fact, claims the Xbox One X deliver 40% more power and 60 percent more memory for game developers than any other console on the market, allowing it to provide a truly immersive 4K gaming experience.
