Xbox One X pre-orders are live now

Xbox One X: The most powerful console ever.

As expected Microsoft officially began accepting pre-orders for the Xbox One X today. Announced at their briefing ahead of Gamescom this week the new and “most powerful console” on the market will set you back A$649 of your hard earned dollars.

What does that get you? Not a lot really. A new console yes, but one with a tiny proportion of titles that take advantage of its new power, now made even tinier with the delay of Crackdown 3 until 2018.

And just so you know I’m not lying… lifted from the pre-order page itself the pre-order “Project Scorpio” version includes:

  • The world’s most powerful console
  • Limited Launch Edition with custom design
  • Includes exclusive Xbox One X vertical stand
  • Project Scorpio inscribed on both console and controller
  • 4K Blu-ray player for immersive gaming and entertainment
  • Works with all your Xbox One games and accessories

So it begs the question, will you be getting an Xbox One X?! I’m struggling to press that order button myself and that’s a really hard thing to say for the first time in generations.
