Without a doubt, the single most question I’ve heard about the Xbox One X is “when the heck can I pre-order this thing”. No, seriously, every time I hit up GameStop, on Reddit, and other places on the net I frequent. It’s a question that gets asked over and over. So when exactly when will these pre-orders start up? Well, if this recent announcement from Microsoft is any indication, we’ll find out in four days.

So what makes this upcoming Sunday special? Well, it’s the start of one of the largest gaming events in the world – Gamescom 2017. It looks like Microsoft is coming out swinging, with the console pre-order announcement, at least.
Now, I know what you’re probably saying. We’ve heard the word “soon” far more than we’ve liked to have heard and I’m with you. Yet, this looks pretty concrete that we’re going to finally get the chance to pre-order the Xbox One X. And it’s a good thing as this money is burning a hole in my pocket, and it’s starting to itch as well.
