The best Xbox One X deals: where to pre-order the 4K Xbox

Get the latest Xbox One X prices and deals

So you're looking for an Xbox One X deal? Well you better get a pre-order put down as soon as possible as the original batch (AKA the Project Scorpio edition) has already sold out (update: actually, Amazon seems to have few of both versions somehow).

Fear not though fellow 4K-hungry gamers as a new wave of Xbox One X pre-orders has landed, with lots of retailers selling pre-orders ahead of the November 7 release date.

We've listed the links below for a reliable collection of UK and US retailers. More and more stock is coming online as we speak. First up, we've given a shout out to stores that have stock right now, followed by ones we think might get some later on too. We wouldn't expect stock to last much longer though.

After a year of waiting, Microsoft finally officially unveiled the Xbox One X at E3 2017. Formerly known as Project Scorpio, this is the full 4K HDR upgrade Xbox One owners have been waiting for.

So we imagine you're after any information you can get about an Xbox One X pre-order deal or bundle? Or maybe you need to be convinced before placing your order?

What is the Xbox One X price?

You might want to sit down for this one. The Xbox One X will cost $499 in the US. UK gamers can expect to get their currency converters in a twist again, as you'll be paying £449 instead of the direct conversion of around £390. Naturally, these prices don't include any games.

Why should I buy an Xbox One X?

Just to be clear, this is not what you'd call a 'next-gen' console. Instead it's a powerful upgrade over the current Xbox One lineup. To simplify things, it's akin to Sony's PS4 Pro. Both consoles are aimed at gamers with a 4K HDR TV who want the best graphical performance possible on their favored console. There will be modest performance boosts on non-4K TVs too, but you're kind of missing the point without a 4K HDR TV.

As things stand the Xbox One X will play all Xbox One games and we're not expecting to see any games released exclusively for the Xbox One X (or so we've been told), so there's certainly no reason to throw away your Xbox One S yet.

The Xbox One X is the most powerful console ever made though, even outshining some of the specs of the PS4 Pro. But given the huge asking price, you'd hope as much. The Xbox One X is making bold claims about true native 4K gaming though with its upcoming titles and if you have a 4K TV with High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, the Xbox One X is ready to seriously impress with the likes of Forza Motorsport 7, Metro: Exodus and Anthem set to be true jaw-droppers in the graphics department.

Where can I pre-order an Xbox One X?

As things stand at the time of writing, a very small number of retailers are still taking Xbox One X pre-orders. The initial batch of them sold out in a day or two and we're only seeing the occasional batch of fresh stock appear online. We'll keep you posted with regular updates towards the top of this article though, so feel free to bookmark us and check in to take a look for an update. We fully expect the likes of Amazon, Microsoft, Game and the other usual suspects to open up some more pre-orders soon ahead of the November 7 release.

Be careful though, many retailers only charge your card once the console ships, so make sure you have the full amount available in your bank around launch to avoid having your order cancelled.

What is the Xbox One X release date?

The Xbox One X will be released on November 7 2017. That's a worldwide release date too. It's a solid time of year to cash in on the Christmas shopping season.

Will there be Xbox One X deals on Black Friday?

Black Friday will be landing just a few short weeks after the Xbox One X's release date, so we wouldn't expect many (if any) discounts on the hardware to be honest. At best you might get a game or two thrown in for free or cheaper than buying them separately.

If the Xbox One X is in short supply though, don't expect retailers to want to discount anything. It's more likely they'll add multiple games to a bundle and sell it at full RRP. Don't believe us? Have you tried to find a decent Nintendo Switch deal lately? If you're after a massive bargain, we expect Sony to be tearing the price of the PS4 Pro deals to shreds to tempt gamers over to the blue team of 4K gaming.

What if I don't care about 4K or want to save money?

The standard Xbox One S is a fantastic games console and you'll easily be able to get one with a few games for probably less than $200/£200 around Black Friday. There are cheap deals all year round on our Xbox One deals and PS4 deals pages too.

Only kidding. I want 4K HDR in my face right now.

4K TVs with HDR are nowhere near as expensive as you'd think. The prices have come down much faster than the original HD TVs, so you can get a decent model for a low price. Hell we've seen some nice ones for less than the price of the Xbox One X itself (what a ridiculous world we live in). For the best of the best, take a look at our best TV article. UK gamers, we've also rounded up the best cheap 4K TV deals too.
