PlayStation Store gift cards are usually on top of the bestseller list in the video game isle on Amazon. Not today. The new $499.99 Xbox One X 1TB Standard Edition is now the overall bestseller in the video game category. Microsoft launched the pre-order for the Xbox One X Standard Edition on Wednesday.
The Xbox One X was initially available as pre-order as limited Project Scorpio Edition last month. Now Xbox fans can secure the regular edition without the Project Scorpio markings. The pre-order allocations for the Xbox One X appear to be quite large. Amazon, GameStop, Microsoft and Best Buy continue to offer the Xbox One X Standard Edition for pre-order.
Microsoft has still six weeks to manufacture Xbox One X units until the release on November 7.
The production of the Xbox One X seems to go well in Suzhou, China. Corporate VP of Device Panos Panay can be seen in the photo below inspecting the production at the factory first hand.
