Microsoft offers preorders of its Microsoft Xbox One X 1TB Console for $499 with free shipping. (Amazon and Best Buy charge a buck more.) Even though that's around list price, it's the first preorder we've seen for the standard edition of this newly-unveiled high-end version of the Xbox One. (For further comparison, we saw preorders of the Scorpio Edition console for $500 a month ago.)

It features upgraded hardware designed to play games at 4K resolution, a 2.3GHz 8-core processor, 12GB RAM (9GB allocated to games), 6 teraflops of graphical processing power, and support for 4K Blu-ray and 4K video streaming. The console comes with a wireless controller. It's expected to be released on November 7.
