Xbox One X Preorders Break Records, Fastest in Xbox History News  Xbox One X Xbox One

The Xbox One X may not be a whole new console generation, but it seems like gamers are buying it like it is. The updated console began preorder sales a few days ago, quickly selling out in many countries and across various retailer. According to Microsoft the sales weren’t just impressive, they were record breaking. In terms of preorders, the Xbox One X is officially the fastest selling Xbox console in the platform’s history.

“Microsoft has done it again! The innovation and power behind the new Xbox One X console is driving excitement and demand among our customers worldwide,” said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of Merchandising for GameStop. “The speed at which we sold through our initial pre-order supply surpassed expectations, and what we experienced with pre-orders for the original Xbox One console…We were absolutely astonished with the run on Microsoft`s new flagship console of the Xbox One family. The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition was the fastest sold-out Xbox console ever.”

According to the announcement, more Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles have been sold in these first five days of preorders than any Xbox console before. Of course, this is great news for Microsoft and their fans, but is bad news for anyone who still wants to put their money down on an Xbox One X.

Thankfully Microsoft has promised news on the second round of console shipments. Expect to hear about this within the next month.

Xbox One X arrive on November 7th.

    Wait. Isn’t the narrative supposed to be that no one is going to buy a $500 console?

      There’s gonna be *a lot* os no ones….I’m definitely one of them.

    • Allen

      More like it doesn’t have a prayer to catch PS4 and $500 is a mistake. Don’t get your pretty little fanboy in too much excitement over pre-orders which are always high. The excitement will die down, the realization that there are no games and that PS4 Pro delivers a lot more content & options for a lot less.

      But yes, there will be plenty of Xbox One X owners. Don’t you worry, many blind people out there that will just buy that up. It’s the smart ones that microsoft can’t seem to sway…you know. People that know better.

      Enjoy!
