Exciting Xbox One X Features Worth Upgrading For

Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X Scorpio Edition at Gamescom 2017 yesterday and the pre-orders went live shortly after the conference. Microsoft announced that this edition of the Xbox One S will be a variant with 1 TB of storage, as noted by The Verge.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Xbox executive Mike Ybarra confirmed that the vertical stand will indeed be sold separately. It's called the Project Scorpio Edition, features a slightly modified design (covered in garish text), and comes with a vertical stand. Don't do that until you fully understand the exclusive Xbox One X features you can expect from Microsoft's latest console. And since all Xbox One X games will be playable on the original Xbox One, it loses the edge of console exclusives.

If you're an Xbox gamer, chances are you're ready to place your Xbox One pre-order today. On the other hand, Microsoft is willing to offer a $100 discount for the standard Xbox One model.

If you really have your heart set on this special edition, keep in mind that some gamers could end up changing their minds and canceling their orders, making a few Scorpio Editions available for preorder, so keep an eye on those preorder pages.

Xbox One X drops in markets later this year so be on the lookout for pre-orders on the Scorpio edition and the normal one if you're interested in getting it. They way in which Xbox fans can benefit from this price cutoff is by trading in their older Xbox One when they made a decision to pre-order the new console. In fact, many third-party developers are already working on enhanced games which will help highlight Xbox One X's true hardware power.
