Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition Pre-Orders and the gamescom Trailers!

Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition Pre-Orders and the gamescom Trailers!

Microsoft will publish PUBG on Xbox One, bringing it to the console later this year in the Game Preview program. The first is a limited edition Project Scorpio Xbox One X Edition, the second is a Minecraft Limited Edition Xbox One S bundle, and the third and final console is an Xbox One S Shadow of War bundle.

If you happen to have missed the whole show you can catch it by visiting Xbox's YouTube channel. As you'd expect it's going to be a limited run, but Microsoft isn't divulging just how many units of Scorpio Edition there will be.

Here's the Xbox One X Project Scorpio limited edition trailer. Packaging is themed to look similar to the original Xbox console. The console and Xbox Wireless Controller are inscribed with the words "Project Scorpio". It's a more powerful iteration of an existing game console: the Xbox One. In the early hours of tomorrow morning, Microsoft will detail pre-order options.

While Minecraft started on PC its growth has been exponential moving quickly to smartphones, tablets, portable games consoles and then of course Microsoft's Xbox One.

With the Xbox One X, Microsoft will go head to head against its arch-rival Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro. On the one hand, it has built-in support for features like HDR, 4K video streaming, and the like. Also included is a full game download of Minecraft, unique Minecraft skins, sounds, textures, and much, much more! A selection of these games are: Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, Star Wars Battlefront 2, PlayerUnknown's: Battlegrounds, NBA2K, Wolfenstein 2, Shadow of War, Titanfall 2, and Fallout 4.

The Minecraft Creeper controller will be available to buy separately, too, alongside a Minecraft Pig controller.

Xbox Live Sessions is a new series coming to Mixer which will feature some prominent pop-culture celebrities streaming games live.

"We want to take the same approach with our console user base as well", continued Han Kim.
