While more stores joined the party yesterday, we've seen initial stock allocation dry up at nearly every United Kingdom retailer.

According to some rumors, pre-orders for the Xbox One X and the Project Scorpio Edition will be available as soon Gamescom is over and Microsoft has unveiled the Project Scorpio Edition as well as the Vanilla edition of its premium console.

The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition has a different body compared to the regular Xbox One X. The console has "Project Scorpio" written on the front, which is also written vertically between the console's controller's D-Pad and right analogue stick. Worth mentioning is that even though Microsoft is already receiving pre-orders, the console will start shipping on November 7. As for HDR, the Xbox One X will support HDR10, and it remains uncertain if there's any word on Dolby Vision. They way in which Xbox fans can benefit from this price cutoff is by trading in their older Xbox One when they made a decision to pre-order the new console.

There are more than 100 games enhanced for the Xbox One X, but it's too early to get excited because not all these will be available at the console's launch date. Would you consider splurging on the Project Scorpio Edition?

What's special about the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition?

It boasts 6 teraflops of power, 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM, and has 1 TB of onboard storage. Expect to see performance optimizations as well, since the games will be updated to support the machine's beefed-up internals. All gone.
