Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition

Even with Microsoft’s Gamescom conference featuring nothing new on Crackdown 3, Super Lucky’s Tale and State of Decay 2, the company still made bank with pre-orders for the Xbox One X: Project Scorpio Edition. According to Xbox marketing manager Aaron Greenberg, the special edition has sold out in just a few hours. He also noted that Microsoft expected this stock to last the week.

Speaking to Rocket Beans TV at Gamescom, Greenberg said that Amazon stock was gone in just 25 minutes, which probably refers to Amazon Germany. That’s because he then says, “We knew [the core fans] would be digitally pre-ordering [Xbox One X] and we wanted to make a special edition just for them. In particular, in Germany the fans ordered at an accelerated rate, maybe the fastest in the world, so it was great to see the support from our fans here.”

Sales numbers weren’t shared but the Xbox One X: Project Scorpio Edition was in the top-sellers for Amazon US when it become available. The limited edition Project Scorpio version differs in that it features a mesh design on top with special green lettering, a vertical stand and green lettering on the controller. It costs the same as the base version at $499.

The Xbox One X is out on November 7th worldwide but with the Project Scorpio Edition selling out so fast, will Microsoft consider making more? That remains to be seen but stay tuned for more information.

    This just in. According to VG charts, Xbox One sales have just barely hit 30 million. How embarrassing. No wonder MS is crying about Sony not allowing crossplay with the PS4 player base. What a pathetic job they are doing with this follow up console compared to the 360. How on earth is Phil Spencer and team still in charge of Xbox?

      This just in, Sony’s number 2 fanboy has just entered this news of the amazing pre orders of the Xbox1X to try and limit as what he sees as damage, his even tried to use VG charts !! a site that Sony fanboy’s support when numbers look to go there way but completely ignore it as made up trash when they don’t.

      His trying to take to subject of the Xbox1X sales off topic because he is angry that he fell for the PS Protato 4k claims (4k lol) and ended up with an underpowered, unintresting, featureless console.

      How embarrassing.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      This just in…when will MS release those preorder numbers for the Scorpio version of the Xbox One X so we can have an idea of how many projected sales to expect?

      This just in… the answer to the question above is NEVER! As of approx Oct 2015, there has been a new policy implemented against embarrassing themselves from the sharing of weak Xbox One sales data, and avoidance of all attempts to expose themselves as liars. We may never know how many units were allocated for preorder of the special edition console because it would defeat the purpose of creating a false sense of demand for the console. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ed9f4c55f921d4b0b4c86763e161212bb3503ea16c609f6b049266100f930c7e.jpg

      This just in, you have totally avoided mentioning the PS Protato sales which can be used as a marker and the order numbers from Amazon.

      The Xbox1X preorders has outsold the PS Protato whole year’s of sales in just the first few days.

      Good day.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Dude, the “PS4 everything” is at beyond 60 million in combined sales. The Xbox One just barely hit 30 million according to recent sales data. The base PS4 was so good that people didnt even need the Pro unless they had a 4K tv. That aint the case with the Xbox One. Why are you even embarrassing yourself like this?

    • Fweds

      The Protato doesn’t need a 4k TV that would be a waste of money, the thing is not anywhere near powerful enough and doesn’t even have an Ultra HD player.

      People buy it for better framerate’s over the old PS4 other than that it has no features.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Do me a favor and post a picture of your huge collection of Ultra HD movies. If you fail to do this for me, then your argument will forever be invalid and you will be exposed as a LOSER!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/708a8b65cdba7f5a97be60da3c84f65278c1cfb70fd05e7b4fcde53d9aafb0c2.jpg

      Actively and repeatedly trolling Xbox articles and you have the gull to call anyone a loser. Oh you poor little man.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      The correct word is “gall”, not gull, you doofus.

    • Learned Handgun

      Your crowning achievement in life is correcting my spelling lol. Sad.

    • ReadySalted

      It was over 36 million a few months back, so how is it only barely hitting 30 million now?

      Obviously Sony didn’t agree with you, otherwise they wouldn’t have made the Pro in the first place.

    • Mr Xrat

      Citing fake numbers again lol

    • ReadySalted

      You replied to the wrong person sharing fake numbers.

    • Henri Le Rennet

      Tell you what, because of people like you, I’m glad I don’t play multiplayer on my PS4. I’ll stick to the single player on exclusives, there’s no multiplayer exclusive on PS4 worth playing anyways, and if all Sony fanboys are as cancerous as you and Mr Xrat, than I don’t want crossplay with Sony. It’s despicable how petty you guys are. Sony mentioned they didn’t want crossplay because they wanted to keep their users safe from other people on Xbox ecosystems. If your guys’ anonymous online activity here is indicative of your anonymous behavior on PS4 than I’d be more concerned for the Xbox gamers. Microsoft would ban you from their servers in a heartbeat.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Tu es un idiot, Henri Le Pew. Allez vous baiser. Ce qui vous fait penser que je jouerais avec vous, vous cul pompeux? Je ne joue pas avec des petites chiennes.

    • Henri Le Rennet

      Mon ami, je suis assez confiant que vous sont déclenchées. Vous devez cesser d’être un perdant impénitent.

  • SalvagedXBot

    I can see Xbox One X outselling the ps4 pro, mainly because the core fan base of Xbox (including me) was hungry for any improvement. After all Xbox has been behind in power since launch. So when you are behind in hardware and software you’ll run out to grab an improvement.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Which was part of the plan. They sold a crap system for $500 at launch. They then released a meager upgrade, suckering in the people who bought the original weak launch console, and here they are again with the same scheme all over again with this new $500 upgrade for the people who got suckered and have been starving for more power. They know their community quite well.

  • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Am I wrong to say that the only thing that makes the Scopio edition the “Scorpio Edition”, is the rather bland green lettering on the console, and the controller?

    What kind of blatant sales scam is that?

    Do you realize that when you buy a special edition console, and it breaks…that there is a very strong likelihood that you will not receive your original special edition console, or the special edition controller back when you send it in to MS for repairs? And what makes it a special edition? The silly bland green lettering stamped on the console, and controller. What a joke. This sh it is hilarious. MS sure knows their stupid customers well. LOL. This ain’t even fair. I just cant. Such hilariousness!!!

    • Fweds

      You really are desperate to take the great news of the Xbox1X sales off topic.

      Back on topic.

      It’s good to see the Xbox1X pre order sales doing so well

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      What great news? Does this mean you have the actual sales data to share with the rest of us?

    • Fweds

      This question has already been answered.

    • ReadySalted

      No, that isn’t the only thing and it doesn’t cost any extra so where’s the scam?
      Where were you with the silver PS4 ‘GT Sport limited edition’ announcement this week? Nowhere to be seen. Funny that.

    • Fweds

      He is number two at the Sony fanboy club, so he probably didn’t even know it doesn’t cost anymore but panicked and rushed to post here after reading the Xbox1X pre order sales news.

      He is also desperately trying to take this news off topic, he also does it on all Xbox games that are not coming to the PS as well, he seems angry that he made the wrong decision when he bought the Protato.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Who said it cost more? I’m saying that there is nothing special to distinguish it, and it is just a scam designed to push early preorders. How hard was it to stamp some lame green lettering on the console and watch you hungry clowns go ga-ga over it? LOL. Too funny. MS is still playing you guys for suckers, and I’m loving every minute of it.

    • ReadySalted

      Look at the Scorpio Edition closely, then look at the silver PS4 edition. Big difference in who’s getting suckered here, all Sony did was put a GT logo on a silver lid. They didn’t even bother to do anything with the ugly chin. Maybe Sony will learn good design next gen.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      I’m sure a good portion of those Scorpio edition preorders will wind up on Ebay to be flipped anyway.

    • Luke Skywalker

      Ahaha go roll up in a corner somewhere, you’ve been Salted.

      That two-tone PS4 Slim destroys the PS2 copy the Xbollox is. Maybe that’s why they did it, they want people to pretend they have a decent console.

      Back to Gamespot with you.

    • ReadySalted

      Like your credibility could get any lower. Your opinion is worthless here, or WCCFTech, or any other gaming website your lust after Xbox over.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      I must say that this sure does look a lot better than that little ink stamp on the Scorpio edition. And its a lot more likely that should it need servicing from Sony, you would get the same unit back. Not so likely with any Xbox repair service. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c45b3ae2313beb32f13f3f401d2539d0f982b313d214f7779364589e1bfdd47a.jpg

    • Omar

      The “Project Scorpio” edition is little more than a Day 1 edition and if u remember the original XB1, that was only written on the controller. There’s no anger by MS customers to be had here. Also…..there is a slight design difference on the top of all Project Scorpio Edition consoles. Nothing big, it’s kinda subtle. Look it up if u need to.

    • ReadySalted

      The 90s called, they want their silver back.

      If you haven’t noticed the colour fade on the Scorpio, that’s your problem. If you think Sony will look after you, that’s a disappointment waiting to happen.

    • Doggystyle ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Color fade??? Oh, ok. LOL!!!

    • ReadySalted
    • Mr Xrat

      A copied design and a disgusting website.

    • ReadySalted

      Copied from where, the One S? Or are you going to be too simplistic and think it somehow looks like a PS2? Must be that one.

    • Mr Xrat

      Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

      Back to Gamespot.

    • ReadySalted

      Where there’s Xbox, there’s superfan Xboxrat.

      Back to every Xbox article you can find.

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    Oh my…thx X has already outsold the PS4 pro for 2017 in just 3 days of preorders

  • Mr Xrat

    “Sold out” but keeps getting restocked. Funny how him and that Xgimp loser Corden are at the same event to co-ordinate their lies, isn’t it?

    Stuck at 66th despite a stock refresh and the Xbone S not in the top 100 at all. So much for that comeback.
