You can preorder a standard Xbox One X in the UK starting tomorrow

The Xbox One X first went on preorder with the limited Project Scorpio Edition a few weeks ago, but we still haven't heard any official word from Microsoft on when standard edition preorders will open up. However, if you live in the UK, it looks like you won't have to wait much longer.

Game UK says it will open up Xbox One X preorders starting at 8 a.m. on September 20. We haven't seen any preorder announcements from other retailers, nor has Microsoft made an official announcement just yet, but it looks like at least Game is a lock.

It's likely we'll see preorders open up from other retailers as well. That said, it's also possible that Game may have a monopoly on preorders for tomorrow, with other retailers to follow.

This follows a bit of a leak from earlier this week, showing that preorders may arrive at Walmart for U.S. buyers on September 21. Like the UK date, we've heard nothing from Microsoft about U.S. standard edition preorders. Instead, it was this weeks Walmart ad that outed the potential preorder date. Hopefully we'll get some clarity from Microsoft relatively soon.

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.

  • That's good to see. Seems like the Scorpio Edition was really limited after all. I was afraid that it was just a marketing scheme, and that everyone who preordered would eventually get the Scorpio Edition, which won't be the case now.
  • Hopefully the US is also able to preorder. The Scorpio edition IMO is ugly AF. The green text ruins the console sleek look. 
  • Also got an email from Amazon.co.uk letting me know pre-sales will start at 8am on the 20th also.   Hello, We wanted to let you know that the XBox One X console will be available to pre-order on Wednesday 20 September at 08:00 (BST). You are receiving this email as you requested availability updates for this item. We hope to see you again soon at Amazon.co.uk. Regards, Customer Service Department
