Yesterday, at Gamescom 2017 in Germany, Microsoft unveiled a special, limited Xbox One X "Project Scorpio Launch Edition" console and announced that Xbox One X preorders are now available.
The new console is expected to ship on November 7, 2017, so that's still a good ways away. However, if you want your Xbox One X as soon as possible, you need to preorder right away. Supplies appear to be limited, and the demand looks high, based on the fact that some retailers, include Amazon, have already sold out.
One potential downside to the news that preorders are live is that you can only purchase the limited edition Scorpio console at this point. In other words, the "regular" non-Scorpio branded Xbox One X is not available. The differences between the two are purely aesthetic, and they seem minor; they consist of some green Scorpio lettering on the console and the controller, and that's about it. But if you'd rather not have any green on your all-black Xbox, you'll have to wait to preorder. And you may not get it as soon as folks who preorder the Scorpio console.
