Update 2: Microsoft confirmed the Xbox One X: Project Scorpio Edition which will go up for preorder today, August 20.

It looks like Microsoft will incorporate the name of Project Scorpio in the console. According to various images that appeared on Twitter and on various German retailers, Xbox One X: Project Scorpio Edition will be the Day One version of the console. It looks like it has an amazing textured pattern on one side too. However, the star of the design has to be the “Project Scorpio” in green letters on the front of the console and the controller. I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it launches on November 7.

That’s not all though, Microsoft is teaming up with Doritos to introduce a special Xbox One X themed pack. Given that Doritos are quite popular with gamers even though this may be a stereotype, it’s still an interesting move.

If you’re in the United Kingdom, be sure to check out the Xbox One X at EGX 2017. EGX 2017, powered by Virgin Media, takes place on the September 21 to September 24 at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre. You can play the latest games like Assassin’s Creed Origins and Super Lucky’s Tale on the console.

Update 1: Xbox One X: Project Scorpio Edition’s packaging looks like the original Xbox with the X representing DirectX prominently featured at the top.
