Microsoft recently wrapped up its Gamescom 2017 live show, where the company made a slew of announcements surrounding both Xbox One hardware and related titles. While the long-awaited opening of Xbox One X preorders was the highlight of the event, we also got a first look at new Xbox One S bundles, trailers for upcoming games and other news surrounding the ecosystem. Here's a round-up of all the biggest announcements made over the course of the 90-minute showcase.

Xbox One X preorders are now live

One of the most anticipated announcements of today's live show was the opening of Xbox One X preorders. After the console's debut at E3 2017, preorders for the device were yet to go live, while awaiting approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). After being officially certified, the console is now available to order at most major retailers.

For now, eager fans can get their hands on a newly announced "Project Scorpio" edition – a homage the device's code name first revealed at E3 2016. With this version, you'll be getting a 1TB hard drive, exclusive stand and most importantly, a custom design. Sporting a unique gradient on both the console and controller, this is a must-buy for dedicated Xbox fans.

New Xbox bundles and Design Lab regions

Microsoft also unveiled two new Xbox One bundles as a part of the show – one centered around Minecraft, and the other based on upcoming RPG, Middle Earth: Shadow of War. These are both Xbox One S bundles, although offer some enticing deals for those not looking to upgrade to the Xbox One X.

The custom-designed Minecraft bundle is the most outstanding of these – packing a sleek new design inspired by the game's voxel art style. The console also sports a transparent underside, with highlights inspired by Redstone trails. Special edition Creeper and Pig controllers were also unveiled alongside the console, with notable designs inspired by their in-game counterparts.

Games to come, updates for the old

While games clearly weren't the focus of the Gamescom live show, various announcements were made over the course of the stream. Among these were a new Jurassic World city-builder, ReCore Definitive Edition, and more information on Xbox One X games this fall.

While the Gamescom 2017 event didn't bear the scale or spectacle of E3, some of the announcements were still welcomed by Xbox enthusiasts. What did you think of today's show? Make sure to drop your thoughts in the comments.
