Xbox Chief Phil Spencer recently promised Xbox One X pre orders wasn’t far away, without providing a time for when a new announcement could be made.
He also discussed possible launch bundles for the Xbox One X, which has a release date of November 7 and a price of £449.

Without exclusive titles and relying on the boosted power it provides, Sony say they have been left pleased with the impact the Pro has made.
And soon it will be the turn of the Xbox One X, Microsoft’s own beefy piece of hardware.
