Just like the Xbox One Day One edition, the Redmond-based company is also built and offering a special edition for the Xbox One X: the Project Scorpio Edition which has a retail price tag of $499. All pre-ordered Xbox One X consoles are part of the "Project Scorpio Edition" production run, at least until supplies run out.

If you happen to have missed the whole show you can catch it by visiting Xbox's YouTube channel. Brook Design on Kickstarter is looking to raise $5,000 towards its project to make an adapter that will fit the Xbox One X to either of the other current-gen consoles, and it's already surpassed it.

Still, the question on everyone's lips is still when the game is going to release on Xbox One and eventually PS4, but information has gone quiet in the last few months. It also comes with a different exterior as well as its own vertical stand. This limited edition console bears that name printed on the console itself as well as its controller. This is a huge bump in performance over the original Xbox One and about 50 percent more power than the PS4 Pro, on paper anyway. Many expected pre-orders to go live during E3 but due to FCC regulations, Xbox had to pass certification before they were allowed to put it up for sale.

"We are counting down to the launch of Xbox One X later this year and look forward to getting the world's most powerful console into the hands of our fans", Corporate VP Mike Nichols said on the Xbox Wire this afternoon.




The 500 GB bundle costs $279 and is available now in all Xbox One markets excluding the U.S., Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, China, and Japan.

Like the PlayStation 4 Pro, one reason to get the Xbox One X is for the 4K enhancements for your favorite Xbox One games.

Here's the new trailer for Forza Motorsport 7.
