Today, Best Buy has announced on Twitter that additional units will go live for pre-order on its website at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET. You’ll be able to pre-order the console here.

The Xbox One X is the most powerful console to date, offering true 4K gaming and a slew of other technical improvements over the standard Xbox One. Over 100 games are said to be “enhanced” by the Xbox One X, including Forza Motorsport 7, Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Crackdown 3, the latter of which was recently delayed.
Specifically, the Project Scorpio Edition offers 1TB of storage space and a “sophisticated and dynamic graphic pattern” across the exterior of the system. What’s more, the words “Project Scorpio” are printed on both the console and the controller — a reference to the codename that was used for the Xbox One X for over a year until the reveal of its official name.
The Xbox One X will release in Canada on November 7th for $599 CAD.
