Pre-orders for Microsoft's Xbox One X have surpassed all previous records, according to the tech giant.

Xbox One X is set to release on November 7 at a price of $499.99. The console will be backward compatible with Xbox One and Xbox One S titles.

With the Xbox One S available and the Xbox One X on its way, Microsoft will no longer sell Xbox One, which was launched four years ago.

Microsoft had started pre-orders for the Project Scorpio Edition last Sunday, with most retailers selling out within minutes. Microsoft claims it to be the "fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever."

"You, our biggest fans, have pre-ordered more Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles in the first five days than any Xbox ever, " Microsoft Marketing VP Mike Nichols said.

Market experts believe the launch of the new Xbox version increase Microsoft's market share in the gaming console industry that is being currently dominated by Sony, which currently has 57% market share compared to Microsoft's 26%.
