Xbox One X preorders got off to a solid start with the Project Scorpio Edition late last month, selling out quickly at major retailers. However, if you weren't able to claim one, or simply don't care for the Project Scorpio aesthetic, it doesn't look like you'll have to wait much longer to get a preorder in for the standard edition of the console.

As first spotted by Reddit user YouAreSalty (via, the latest weekly Walmart ad notes that Xbox One X preorders will be available in-store on September 21. The model shown in the ad is the standard edition, and quantities will be limited to two per person, according to the fine print.

We haven't heard anything from Microsoft about another round of preorders, so nothing is completely official just yet. However, it's not likely Walmart would slot the date into an ad without some inside information, so this is more likely a case of Walmart jumping ahead of official word. While all we have is Walmart's ad to go off of, it seem highly likely we'll see preorders from other retailers on September 21 as well, as it would be an odd move for Microsoft to restrict preorders to Walmart alone.

The Xbox One X runs $499 and is scheduled to arrive on November 7, just in time for the holiday season. For more, check out our recent hands-on with the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition.
