If you’re like me, you most likely fell in love with the name Project Scorpio. If the name Xbox One X still doesn’t sit right with you well, Xbox has you covered with the Project Scorpio edition of the Xbox One X. During the Gamescom 2017 Xbox live stream, Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb announced and unboxed the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition.
The video starts off with Larry talking about the beautiful packaging that the powerful console comes in. If you’re also like me, you don’t give a crap about boxes. BUT, the packaging is really beautiful. The best part is the shout out to the original Xbox’s X on the top of the console along with hints of the original Xbox green.
The console comes with a trial for Xbox game pass as well as Xbox live gold, which I assume is pretty standard with most of the Microsoft consoles these days.
One selling point in the vertical stand. When the Xbox One originally launched, it was thought more of a living room accessories rather than a gamers dream which led to the omission of any verticality to the console. Well, they’re bringing it back. Along with being the most powerful console on the market, it’ll also be the smallest Xbox ever made, giving it the ability to “sit pretty”, as I would say to my dogs or, stand vertically. This gives gamers the ability to truly set up their gaming space the way they want it set up.
The console also comes with the standard HDMI cables, controller and the ports on the back of the Xbox One X Project Scorpio edition resemble the Xbox One S for convenience. Even more convenient, they’ve included dots on the back of the console to make it easy to identify the necessary ports so you don’t have to pull out your console every time you want to plug it in. The controller is also customized to represent Project Scorpio with the logo labeled down the middle of the controller in classic Xbox green.
While also being one of the most powerful consoles on the market, it’ll also be one of the most stylish. The Xbox One X Project Scorpio edition is embroidered with a grayscale gradient that goes from light to dark representing the “power of the console”.
