There's a much more subtle nod to Xbox history on the box itself - that is, the packaging for the console - but you might not have caught it.

The problem documented is that when users are playing their games, the console suddenly shuts off, and no matter how many times they try or switch the cords, there's no luck in attempting to turn it back on again.

Yes, it's still an Xbox One at heart, and it'll work with the same games and peripherals as the original Xbox One and last year's 4K-upscaling Xbox One S. We will report back with more details as they are announced.

Microsoft's Shannon Loftis talked about the reaction that the Xbox One X has got. A subset of those boxes contained a special version of the hardware for early pre-order customers, the Project Scorpio Edition.

But nearly everything else about the console is exactly the same as its much more affordable counterpart, the Xbox One S, which also rings in at half the price: $250.

You can still order an Xbox One X through GameStop's site, but your mileage may vary when it comes to finding one in your local stores.

Microsoft's Xbox 360 was notorious in its first few iterations of the console for having a relatively high failure rate, with the "red ring of death" becoming something of a meme over time.
