Project Scorpio Unboxing

Back in August, Microsoft pre-orders went LIVE for the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition. This new system would be bringing Native 4K Gaming in console form to households.

Fast forward to November 7th, Xbox One X was officially released worldwide and Tech Daddy received ours on November 9th… Thanks, Amazon…

When you open your new Xbox One X, you are greeted with a two week free Trial of Xbox Live and a one month access to Xbox digital Game service, Game Pass. For $9.99 a month, you are able to play over 100 Xbox one and Xbox 360 Titles on your console. Microsoft will be adding new games monthly to your subscription. It is pretty much a Netflix subscription for Video Games. But this better as you don’t have to stream your games. You are literally downloading full games to your hard drive. This is a great service.

What’s included in the Project Scorpio edition is a Project Scorpio Exclusive Xbox One X, Controller, 4K HDMI Cable, Mounting Stand and power cable. The big power block that’s known for Microsoft is officially gone! The system itself is very sleek but definitely has some weight in it. This is due to the new components in it which causes it to be the most powerful console out right now.
