The 6 TF monster is designed to power 4K experiences, providing the best visuals for all games across all consoles. The Xbox One X can also do everything your Xbox One S can do, but better, providing better visuals even on HD TVs. 4K game DVR, a smaller design, and a faster HDD will truly provide a premium Xbox experience unmatched in the market today, and it's available to preorder right now.

Hot on the heels of the successful preorder sales of the Project Scorpio edition, the standard edition Xbox One X will be going live for preorder (opens in new tab) today at $499.99 across all major retailers.

The Xbox One X seems legit

The Xbox One X represents the start of Microsoft's fight back in the evolving console war, which, so far this gen, has been dominated by Sony's PlayStation. Multi-platform games moderately outperformed the Xbox One versions on PlayStation 4, but that should no longer be the case with the Xbox One X, which is 50% more powerful even than Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro.

With the largest line-up of console games, now spanning generations thanks to backwards compatibility, the Xbox platform is an amazing place to play, and with the X, it should become the best place to play, as games will look better and run faster.

  • Got my Scorpio Edition pre ordered. Glad to see orders go live for standard editions now.
  • por que não vai ter nas lojas o Xbox one x no Brasil? 
  • How can I buy this in Hongkong?
  • Preorders are rolling out in existing Xbox One markets today supposedly, so make sure to check back at retailers in your region! (:
  • The preorder button will appear on this page. The code has changed several times over the last few days, currently has the preorder button commented out (doesn't work by uncommenting it though). In theory this will also allow the choice to order the Project Scorpio edition, or the standard edition, both are $3,880.
  • The "this page" in my comment is a link by the way, it's not formatting it any differently than the rest of the text.
  • Hello, any ideas about if the console will be region locked in China? Thanks
  • For complete article. Italy: Amazon Microsoft Store:
  • I'm going to TGS tomorrow. Hope MS releases some info... I want the Scorpio version!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • These things should be coming with SSD's. Hard Drives are just too slow
  • at least is a 7200RPM drive in the One X, which should give you better performance than the stock One and PS4Pro
  • Does anyone know if MS or any other retailer will offer some kind of trade-in program for those that have the Xbox One or the Xbox One S? I currently own an S and not really feeling compelled to get an X unless I can use the money from the S towards the X. 
  • I know GameSpot will.  Amazon also shows you trade in for the One X on the order page.
  • Game stop does up to 200 in towards new xbox or if I ead correctly
  • Available on the East Coast now!
  • Replacing both xbox one's with a project scorpio and standard One X. The gamestop trade in for a 500gb is now $70, it was $100 at one point.
  • If u opt for credit, they r offering $150 guaranteed for ONE S
  • $70 for credit, $56 for cash.
  • Ohh. U mean the Xbox One or Xbox One S? Sorry, they r offering $150 credit for One S
  • Done... With 3.5 percent Ebates rebate using Microsoft Store!
  • They don't charge you until it ships, correct?
  • Correct for Amazon . Even though I would have preferred for them to take my money immediately while I have it
  • Here in Europe, I ordered mine in @ MS Germany yesterday. It is anticipated to be delivered on 6th November in Benelux.
  • I'm ordering one of these beauties when a 4K Freesync TV is available. I hope it happens in 2018. If not, I may just suck up and buy it with a smaller monitor. :-(
