In fact, Amazon responded to Kotaku directly, stating that it does "have inventory to fulfil all Xbox One X pre-orders" but the "customer delivery date may vary based on their location and chosen shipping method".

Xbox One X launched yesterday and was well received by the general public and fans alike. "That happened about the time we started talking about the Xbox One X", he said, making clear that the X was aimed as a 4K console right from the start.

With the launch of the Xbox One X, an officially licensed stand has surfaced on Amazon, from gaming accessory manufacturer PowerA. Check back with STACK later this week for our full hands-on review of the Xbox One X. "They're on average probably a third larger than the 1080p assets".

You can see how to do that in Xbox's own video tutorial below. And the ancillary benefits of Microsoft's ecosystem, such as Xbox Play Anywhere and backward compatibility going back to the original Xbox, can't be discounted.

Analyst IHSMarkhit predicts the console will shift around 900,000 units in the UK and US by the end of the year, though it is available to buy in 35 markets globally. It's exactly what the company promised: "the fastest game console ever made".

Select move, copy, move all, or copy all, and move to the new drive accordingly. But with Xbox One X and its 4K assets, these downloads are even worse: I have at least two games, Halo 5: Guardians and Gears of War 4, that take up over 100 GB of disk space each. You can later transfer these via USB or over your home network.

Will all Xbox One accessories and peripherals will work with the Xbox One X?

This gives people time to save for the new console while also ensuring their games will be running at 4K as soon as they put the discs in (or boot up the digital file).

There's three things that we track for Xbox One X: 4K UHD, HDR and Xbox One X Enhanced.

Nintendo, meanwhile, which was a non-factor at the launch of Xbox One and PS4, is on a tear, with Nintendo Switch still regularly selling out at retail. We didn't run into any problems we couldn't easily solve with a quick Googling, and some functions, like watching 4K movies, streaming Netflix, or using the clip editor, were effortless.

But in the meantime, Penello says that buying an external hard drive would be a viable solution to add some much-needed space.

"The Xbox One X is a very impressive collection of hardware crammed into a sleek case".

They can cost anything from £300 to several thousand pounds. A lot of waiting.
