Those who picked up the original Betamax-esque Xbox One on launch day might still remember the console’s special “Day One Edition“. Those who bought the system on launch day were gifted with a branded “Day One Edition” controller and a unique achievement to show their dedication to the Xbox brand.

The Project Scorpio Edition will feature a few minor cosmetic changes

Xbox One X seems to be following this trend with the Project Scorpio Edition being available for the first batch of Microsoft’s new 6 Teraflop console.

Spotted on German games website Saturn and MediaMarkt by the German Xbox news website Xbox Dynasty, the Project Scorpio Edition of the One X will be the a pretty similar package to the basic model with a few minor differences.

The console itself will be a standard one terabyte model with a altered “woven” texture on the top along with the words “Project Scorpio” written along the front in a small, green font. The controller follows suit with the text placed downwards between the D-Pad and the right thumbstick and also features an all black color scheme for its A,B,Y and X buttons, without the colored indicators seen in more recent Xbox controllers.

None of this is particularly enticing outside of the much nicer texture on the top of the One X console, but it is very welcome for early adopters of the upcoming console.

The Xbox One X is currently slated to launch on November 7th with a pricetag of $499, £449, €499, CAD 599 and finally AUS 649.
