First, this has already been posted earlier today. Second, this is not, NOT, for the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Special Edition. This is for the standard edition. The Project Scorpio Special Edition sold out long ago and will not be available for order again.

Project Scorpio was the codename for the console. When it was officially released, it was released as the xbox one x. The Scorpio Edition was a launch edition that will have a slightly different skin on top, and the moniker for Scorpio on the console and controller and a vertical stand (which is suppose to be exclusive, but who knows). As for specifications, they are all the same.

Thanks, that's not much of a difference

I do plan to preorder this because I just finished upgrading my system to a 65inch 4K OLED set and added 4 dolby atmos ceiling speakers and a Denon receiver. There's not a whole lot of 4K/Atmos content to pirate, so I plan to for the first time in my life, actually start to purchase movies.. I believe now is a good time... 8K assuming it ever gets popular in the next decade offers little to no benefit in picture quality over 4K at these screen sizes, and dolby atmos and DTS-X are here to stay. Not having blown lots of money on VHS, DVD, or regular bluray, I can get some nice bang for the buck purchasing 4K/atmos and enjoying a superior experience that blows away the quality of streaming without the whole rebuying movies I already owned in older formats.

I have a 2600k (@ 4.5 ghz) with GTX 970 and don't feel like upgrading it yet, and upgrading would entail me spending $500+ on a 7820x, $500+ on a GTX 1080, $125 for the 4K bluray drive, and that doesn't even count the price of motherboards, an M2 boot drive, case, etc.

I'd rather just spend the $500 and get 6 tflops of power which already bests my current system along with the 4K bluray playback, Atmos support, HDR, etc.

Seems like a nice bang for the buck purchase for me... rather than spending $150-200 just on a 4K bluray player or vastly less powerful xbox one s, or spending $1500+ on a new PC when I don't really play enough AAA rated titles to justify all that upgrading. I'll use this as a stop gap and upgrade my PC in a few years when PCI Express 4 and 12 core processors are mainstream. I have this gut feeling there's about to be a core count war that could end up with us having 16-32 core PCs for affordable prices within a few years.

Bless AMD for surviving and providing some competition for Intel so they stop subjecting us to 2 and 4 core processors in their mainstream lineup. For a while there we were stagnating in processing power. Now we just need hard drive prices to get down below that $25-30/TB level where they've been stuck for the longest time.

There's never been a better time to build a good home theater setup for bang for the buck. Nothing is going to come around to best 4K, HDR, and Dolby Atmos/DTS-X for some time. All the ingredients are there in the right proportions, except for perhaps HDMI 2.1 and dynamic hdr, which are marginal upgrades compared to the HDR we have now.
