Xbox One X Pre-Orders Sell Out In Record Time

If you want a gaming PC capable of pushing out native 4K visuals, which the Xbox One X definitely can do with proper optimization, you're going to spend about $350-$400 on the GPU alone. Last year, Microsoft launched the Xbox One S, a slimmer version of the Xbox One with enhanced processing power and a 4K Blu-ray player. In the United Kingdom, the console is listed as "out of stock".

According to Glixel, Microsoft quietly stopped manufacturing the original version of the console after the smaller Xbox One S was released in August of 2016.

The original Xbox One looked similar to a VCR unit and cost $100 more than Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4). The change appears to be recent as the console was still listed as available last week.

This year should prove to be an important time once again for Microsoft as "the world's most powerful console", the Xbox One X, comes out on November 7th.

Among the lineup of Japanese titles coming to Xbox One is Code Vein, Dynasty Warriors 9 and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. The original console has been officially discontinued.

There's also a bit of a mysterious cloud looming over the Xbox One X when it comes to actual demand. Especially since the Xbox One S has been launched in the market.

I suppose the biggest issue setting back the Xbox One X isn't anything to do with the hardware or price, but mostly to do with the lack of software.
