Microsoft kicked off the next generation gaming at Gamescom last month. The Xbox One X Scorpio Edition was a limited edition version of the new console that experienced record-setting sales numbers in the first five days. The Scorpio Edition was the fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever, according to Microsoft.

But don’t worry if you didn’t manage to get your hands on one of those yet, the standard edition of the “most powerful console ever” is going up for sale today at $499.99.
