Xbox One X is the fastest selling Xbox pre-order ever

The 4K video gaming system rapidly sold at most merchants over the past couple of days, and pre-orders for the limited edition console already exceeded Sony's Playstation 4 Pro on Amazon's 2017 best seller list.

Microsoft clearly has an early hit on it hands, and Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Xbox Mike Nichols happily declares today that Xbox One X is the fastest selling Xbox pre-order ever. "Within just a couple of days, we saw record-setting sell-out times and are presently sold out in numerous countries all over the world," shared the exec. "You, our greatest fans, have pre-ordered more Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles in the very first five days than any Xbox ever."

If you missed your chance to pre-order the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition this week, do not worry: the Xbox team will share information of the next wave of Xbox One X standard edition pre-orders next month, so more lovers will have the ability to get their console on November 7.

In other Xbox One X-related news, the new console got the gamescom 2017 award for best hardware this week, which is most likely well-deserved: if the new console is almost six times more powerful than the Xbox One S, it has a slightly smaller sized body and retained the Xbox One S internal power brick, which is truly great. As Nichols says it, "there's truly never been a better time to be an Xbox gamer,".
