As it kicked off its Gamescom presence, Microsoft surprised and delighted hardcore Xbox fans by announcing the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, with preorders opening up over the weekend. But if you were hoping to get your hands on one of the special edition versions of the console, it looks like your time has run out: the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition appears to be sold out at all major retailers.
The console actually appeared as sold out not long after going up for preorder at most retailers, but some had shown it as available for order off an on over the following day or so. Walmart appeared to be the last big retailer still accepting preorders, but they carried a shipping date of early December. Now, it seems all major retailers, including Best Buy, Gamestop, Amazon, and even Microsoft itself, are showing the console as out of stock.
To recap, the Project Scorpio Edition is a sort of tribute to dedicated fans who closely followed the development of the Xbox One X, which carried the Project Scorpio code name ahead of its reveal. The limited-run console features the code name printed on the console itself, along with the included controller. There's also a stippled pattern across the top of the console, which isn't a feature present on the standard Xbox One X.
It's certainly possible we could see preorders for the Project Scorpio Edition open up sporadically as some people inevitably decide to cancel theirs in the run-up to launch. Xbox One X is expected to launch on November 7 at a price of $499. If you want to keep an eye out for a chance to order one ahead of time, you can keep an eye on the preorder links below.
