If you were paying attention during E3, you'll have seen Microsoft announced the Xbox One X. The 4K edition of the Xbox One is will be available on 7th November, with a hefty £450 price tag. If that price doesn't put you off, you might want to pay attention this weekend. Because Microsoft is revealing the first pre-order details at Gamescom on Sunday night.

That's 8pm BST on Sunday night for people too lazy to work out time zone conversions. The Verge's Tom Warren claims that pre-orders will also go live as soon as the event is over.
That's provided people are actually going to bother pre-ordering the console. Unlike, say, a Nintendo console that sells out within five minutes, it's unlikely that Microsoft will suffer from a shortage of Xbox One X consoles. It could also be a broken block of crap, and you won't know until the review embargo breaks shortly before release. What I'm basically saying is pre-order at your own risk, because it's not really necessary.
Still it'll be nice to get a range of launch titles for the console, even if it's not technically a brand-spanking-new piece of kit.
