Just picked up my scorpio about a hour ago from a Best Buy north of dallas. was told 15 preorders for scorpio edition went out at midnight and around 5 or 6 picked up base model at midnight as well. when i got mine they had about 10 in a stack when you walk through the door. None in the gaming section.

Yeah, that was my first reaction to holding it. Makes sense, though, considering what they've crammed in there.

First thing I said during my impression.  Taking it home it was my immediate impression how heavy it was.  I am guessing including that cooler, internal power supply added to the weight.  When you take it out of the box and see how small it is you know its jammed packed.

I was too late to pre-order and first shipments were sold out. I'll Join this club at the end of the month.

At this very moment my brother is texting me how awesome his X1X is 😣 he's playing Shadow of War & Gears 4.

Piers Harding-Rolls, Director of Research and Analysis Games at IHS Markit, told GamesIndustrythat the research firm is almost doubling their 2017 Xbox One X ( Amazon, $499.99) sales forecast. This seems to echo Microsoft’s Albert Penello’s statement that the console will be a must-have item during the Holiday season.

Feedback on pre-order volume for both the limited edition Project Scorpio Xbox One X and for the standard version of the X console has led us to increase our 2017 sell-through forecast for Xbox One X. The Project Scorpio limited edition pre-order strategy has been particularly effective in driving what is expected to be a robust launch week in key sales territories. IHS Markit has therefore increased its 2017 forecast from 500,000 to 900,000 units. At this level, Xbox One share of total Q4 2017 Xbox One console family sales will be close to 20 percent, similar to the performance of PS4 Pro at launch. If Microsoft outperforms and delivers sales in excess of this forecast it will be considered a major launch success.

Harding-Rolls still doesn’t believe Xbox One X sales will be enough to change the tide in Microsoft’s favor against their main rival PlayStation 4, but it should offset the lower revenue from Xbox One S( Amazon) due to decreased average price.

Xbox One X is poised to give the company a boost in its ambition to compete more effectively with PS4 Pro in strategically important markets of the USA and UK. Other select markets, such as Germany in Europe with its PC gaming heritage, are also forecast to deliver solid launch traction. Overall, however, IHS Markit does not expect Xbox One X to have a dramatic impact on market share between Sony and Microsoft in continental Europe as the market’s current momentum is well entrenched. IHS Markit currently forecasts the Western Europe installed base of PS4 family of consoles to reach 26 million by the end of 2017 compared to 8 million for the Xbox One family of consoles.

Sales of the more expensive Xbox One X console will also help mitigate the fall in Xbox One S hardware average sales price which in recent fiscal quarters has undermined the positive impact felt by Microsoft of increased revenues from software and services. As such, Microsoft’s games business-related revenue is expected to increase year-on-year in Q4 2017.

Sigh, I dont know what got messed up, but my scorpio edition will not be here until Thursday according to amazon. Gratz to those who have one already!

I am very eager for it though and cant wait to run through Gears of War 4 again along with Halo 1-5 and forza horizons 3 and grab some more games with the black friday sales coming up, good times ahead
