Xbox One X Pre-Orders Will Open Soon, Says Xbox Boss
"Our plan is set."
If you're eager to reserve your Xbox One X, Microsoft says there's not long to go until you can order your unit. Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has stated that it "won't be too much longer" until pre-orders are live for the upgraded Xbox console.
Replying to a query on the subject, Spencer wrote: "Our plan is set for this. All approvals are done so … [it] won't be too much longer."

Xbox One X was revealed at E3 2017, but at the time of writing it is still not available to pre-order in the US, UK, or Australia. When listings do eventually go live, the console will cost US $500 / £449 / AU $649. We already know, meanwhile, that the device is launching on November 7 worldwide. Microsoft says the X is the company's smallest console ever, and we recently learned it can stand vertically. For more on the new device, check out everything we know about the Xbox One X.
