On Sunday at Gamescom, Microsoft announced that “The world’s most powerfull console” would be available for pre-order.
With a special Project Scorpio edition being available, retailers everywhere have been selling out within a few days. Unfortunately, Microsoft don’t release their sales numbers, so it’s hard to say if it was a case of small amount of stock being available from the start or Microsoft having a success on their hands.
Although we don’t have numbers at this time, if you look at Amazon’s best sellers for 2017, the Xbox One X has surpassed the PS4 Pro for overall sales. The PS4 Pro has been available all of 2017 compared to the 3 days that the Xbox One X has been available to order.
Has Microsoft got a winner on their hands? Only time will tell, but for now it’s looking hopeful.
The Xbox One X will release on November 7th and will cost £449.99.
