Project Scorpio Edition in high demand.
Microsoft’s upcoming console appears to be off to a strong start, as Xbox One X has set a new preorder record for the company.
According to a post on Xbox Wire, more Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles were preordered in the first five days than any Xbox before. Microsoft said it saw record-breaking sell-out times for the console, which is currently sold out in many countries.
“The speed at which we sold through our initial preorder supply surpassed expectations, and what we experienced with preorders for the original Xbox One console,” GameStop senior VP of merchandising Bob Puzon said.
Microsoft plans to share details about the next wave of standard edition Xbox One X preorders next month. If you’re still looking to reserve the $499 console ahead of its November 7 launch, head over to IGN’s Xbox One X preorder guide.
