In a little under two months, Microsoft's next gaming console will arrive in retail stores and into eager consumers' homes. Since 2016, Microsoft has touted that its latest offering would be "the world's most powerful console", offering 40 percent more power than any other console currently on the market.
In June, the firm gave more details about its console during E3 2017, announcing its official moniker as the Xbox One X, and displaying some of the titles that would arrive like Forza 7, Crackdown 3, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and more. Although the console was revealed in full, along with its $499 price tag, the vital information of when one could pre-order it would go missing.
A couple of months later at gamescom 2017, Microsoft revealed that a limited edition Project Scorpio variant would be available for pre-order and while this console went on to sell out rather quickly, the standard variant of the Xbox One X was missing during this pre-order cycle, leaving many scratching their heads.
Now, it appears that pre-orders for the standard edition could start this week. This news comes from a Walmart ad that was uncovered through Reddit and shows that the console will be available to pre-order in-store starting on September 21. At this point, it is uncertain whether this will be exclusive to Walmart or if other retailers will also open pre-orders on this same date. The Xbox One X will arrive to retail starting on November 7 for $499.
