It’s particularly bizarre as you’ve actually been able to pre-order Project Scorpio until it was announced 12 months ago at E3.
It’s very clear that there’s reason behind this, but it’s not clear what this reason is. It could be due to the fact that EB Games hasn’t been told stock allocations or that they’re waiting for clarification that it’s OK for sale in Australia, but apart from this, we’re a little confused about why EB Games wouldn’t allow pre-orders. It’s been well-documented that they’ll take pre-orders for gaming items for months and even years before they’re released.
The Xbox One X releases on November 7th for $649 in Australia.
