Sexy Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition will get your finger on the pre-order trigger

Maybe don’t continue with this article if you aren’t in the mood to drop a wad of cash on a 4K-ready console.

Xbox One X was the star of Microsoft’s pre-gamescom 2017 presentation, and the hot new day one edition of the updated hardware stole the show and our hearts.

The specially-designed Project Scorpio Edition is for those who get on the Xbox One X train nice and early; don’t expect it to be available if you want to join the fun 12 months down the track.

The special edition Xbox One X is branded with “Project Scorpio” on both console and controller, and comes with a limited edition vertical stand. You’ll also get a 14 day Xbox Live Gold trial and a 1 month Xbox Game Pass trial, as well as all the usual cables.

Take a look at this ridiculously sexy beast in the video below. It’s a real temptation. If you can’t resist, you can pre-order now via Amazon, GAME, Microsoft itself, as well as most big specialist game retail chains, depending on which territory you’re in.

The new hotness. Be responsible with your pennies, cats; think about how often you switch your vanilla Xbox One on and consider Microsoft’s ineptitude in getting games out the door.

Xbox One X launches in November and does not have a first-party launch title since Crackdown 3 got bumped (and Microsoft cancelled everything else it had in the buffer).

Still: if we’re finding that pretty bit of kit hard to resist, the Xbox faithful must be in raptures. It could do well.
