Xbox One X Scorpio Edition
The limited edition Xbox One X Scorpio Edition has the codename embossed on both the controller and the console in a shade of green which is synonymous with earlier generation Xbox console, and there’s a dynamic graphic pattern on the shell. The packaging has been designed in a similar way to the original Xbox console in a clever nod to the past which doesn’t detract from the consoles clean lines and monolithic style. Apart from the aesthetic differences, Microsoft has not introduced any alterations from the standard Xbox One X at this stage, and there is a limited number of Xbox One X Scorpio Editions available to pre-order for the same price as the standard Xbox One X console – $499.99.
