ThisGenGaming says "In the UK and missed out on the inital pre-orders for Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition? Well there's a second wave of pre-orders that went live just now, but it's not known how long it will stay back in stock for."
I wonder how many of these are gonna end up getting canceled?
Because when unannounced, unexpected pre-orders open up, especially on non-US retail sites, it has a decent chance of being a mistake.
The advertisement clearly said, hurry limited supply. They aren't supposed to be back. That was the point of jumping on it. This should be the standard. But that is just me believing Microsoft... my bad.
Hate to give you news you don't want to read Cy, but it will most likely sellout.
*rolls eyes* I already have a Scorpio Edition pre-ordered and the X1 is my primary gaming system. But tell me more about how I want the X1X to do poorly. My comment was based mostly on the fiasco surrounding the SNES Classic pre-orders and how many of those got canceled or went up too early. Since that was the last limited edition console to be put up for pre-order, and since this seemed like a very random "oh hey that super limited console that sold out is suddenly up for pre order again but only at this one retailer", I drew parallels.
It's not really wanting it to do poorly cause overall that doesn't help the industry. But given the price point and the niche market they're targeting it will most likely do poorly after the first or second wave of shipments.
Preorders are also reopening in Australia at EB games on the 21st. They have probably just increased production volumes.
They're for launch day units, which incidentally won't be Scorpio Editions.
@Matrix6. That makes sense. My scorpio edition is preordered so i only saw the advert.
Or cancelled pre orders
I wonder why your comment has any validity or if it just comes from being a PlayStation fan boy? This console is going to sell like hotcakes true 4K gaming as opposed to PS4 Pro wanna 4K gaming.
Luckily I have mine pre ordered at GS, hopefully I can get it release day.
Would they do that?
I've heard of them taking more pre orders than they can fulfill
What about the US?!?!
Wake up early on the day of release and reserve local stock for pickup.
What Genuine said. Always worth trying no matter how much they say they're out of stock. Theres always the chance of a few units here and there 🤞
One year later there will be still limited scorpio edition
Even though they've all sold out and are only for launch day? Cool story bro!
So was the day one edition of OG xbone. It was "sold out" too but available new on Amazon over a year after launch.
Truth^^ I worked at tArgent at the time....saw day ones months after launch
All sold out... you did see the article your commenting on right... in stock Now! May not actually be now but it was back in stock so they've all sold out? No they being drip fed. Artificial demand I believe ya'll conspiracy theorists call it 😉✌🏻
I got a day one Xbox One console 6-7 months after release which came with Forza 5 code and a controller that said Day one 2013 on it and a code for a day one achievement (sold that).
Don't think some of you are getting that this edition is a limited edition period. Launch editions are usually around a lot longer but this is limited and uses it's old codename not the official name.
Its out of stock.
it's not on there now
Reminds me of the XB1's "Day One Edition" that retailers just couldn't get rid of and were still on shelves years later.
More than likely they found an extra shipment on a pallet in the back of the warehouse. It is no longer available online. It is again SOLD OUT.
wish they made the controller like the original, this design looks terrible
only two months left. to all the haters of this system please continue because your feedback will make xbox great again. lol
Of all the things that would make Xbox great again, how many of them actually made it great again? If anything, Xbox is in the worst shape it's ever been, because there is nothing to get behind other than new hardware, and a new Forza.
please every multiplat will play better. forza 7 best racing game. cuphead, we happy few, conan , path of the exile. Why do you care ?I gamers play everygame regardless of platform but I guess and this is a guess you only love what sony makes. Veggie gamers are always fun.
You guess wrong. I actually respect MS high profile games. They're not all to my taste, but you will not find me disparaging against their good games. But you haven't answered the question. How will it be great again just because it's more powerful? by the time devs really start utilizing that power on a grand scale, the next gen will be upon us, leaving MS behind.....again.
This article is out of date. As of 9/19/17 1814CMT UK Amazon is out of Stock of the Scorpio
Got mine preordered. Was litteraly at the mall when I got an email notification saying it was available now for pre order. Worked out well.
Im sure whenever they publish an exclusive AAA game in the future, a nice console bundle will be released.. I have a few games for the xb1 but havent bought the console yet.. I will eventually but dont need it yet
Must be cancelled pre orders? I thought they weren't doing anymore Scorpio Editions.
I really think that the Xbox One X will be a success, just not by the measure that many of you may agree with. Microsoft is trying to create a premium tier of product that still runs all of the same software as their "standard" tier so that they can coexist for each niche of gamer. Much like the IPhone 8 (and even the 6 and 7 which will remain in production) alongside Iphone X. I actually think it's funny and interesting that both Apple and Microsoft have are releasing a premium tier product with the "X" annotation within like one month of each other. (Yeah yeah I know with apple it means "ten" but...its interesting nonetheless).
