On Sunday, at the gamescom expo in Germany, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, a limited edition variant of its mighty new console. It also opened pre-orders for the console ahead of its release on November 7, priced at $499.
Xbox marketing chief Aaron Greenberg said that the response to the Xbox One X had been "overwhelming", adding that Microsoft expects it to be "the number one hit product" of the upcoming holiday season. He also said that pre-orders at Amazon had sold out just 25 minutes after they began.
Today, Mike Nichols, Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Xbox, revealed that the Xbox One X is "the fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever".
"Within just a few days," he continued, "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."
Earlier this week, Microsoft revealed its official list of 118 'Enhanced' games for the Xbox One X that have been confirmed so far.
