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.

Odell Beckham Jr. seen at World's Most Powerful Console Xbox One X Worldwide Launch at the Fifth Ave. It's not just newer games getting the treatment, however. With 4K gameplay, improved frame rates, and faster loading times, the Xbox One X is certainly a tempting console but, as Xbox head Phil Spencer said, it's created to appeal more to gaming connoisseurs.

Xbox One X will also support PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, one of the biggest PC games of the year, when it launches as a console exclusive on December 12. They're expected to release their next earnings report on November 27, a report that'll nearly certainly include some mention of how the Xbox One X did in their stores as well as some figures to show how many consoles they sold.

During the night Liam Payne and Caleb McLaughlin joined other gamers on Xbox Live Sessions, Microsoft's interacting gaming channel on their recently acquired Mixer Xbox Channel where they played Minecraft and Forza Motorsport 7.

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.
