Though it's not an entirely unexpected bit of news, Microsoft cleared up a little bit of potential confusion surrounding the vertical stand for the Xbox One X. During Sunday's unveiling of the Project Scorpio Edition of the console at Gamescom, Xbox's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb mentioned the vertical stand would be included with the special edition, which some took to mean it would be exclusive. But there's no need to worry, everyone will be able to get their hands on one.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Xbox executive Mike Ybarra confirmed that the vertical stand will indeed be sold separately. When it comes right down to it, making such a minor accessory exclusive to a limited subset of early preorders would have been a little questionable anyway. However, Ybarra's confirmation should clear up any confusion brought about during the unboxing.
There's no price available just yet, but a similar vertical stand for the Xbox One S currently retails for $19.99 (though it can be had for $14.99 at Amazon). It would make sense for the One X stand to come in at a similar price point. Of course, Project Scorpio Edition owners will get it for free in the box.
