The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition is available to pre-order right now, straight from Microsoft, and if you order it from Microsoft we have a neat little trick that will save you $50. That's right, you can snag an Xbox One X for 10% right now, but you'll need to act fast. How is this possible, you might ask? Simple: through a very conveniently timed Amazon promotion.

Note: If you purchase one of the awesome products featured here, we may earn a commission.

Right now you can snag digital Xbox One gift cards from Amazon for 10% off. Here's a link to a $100 card for only $90. This may seem like useless information, until you learn that you can use this digital Microsoft currency to buy your Xbox One X. That's right. You can pre-order and pay off your entire console using your Xbox credits, which means that you basically have a $50-off coupon available to you.

So head over to that Amazon link, grab yourself four of those gift cards for $450, and when it's all said and done you'll have $500 in Xbox credits ready to go. Once your currency is stockpiled, you can head over to the Microsoft store here to pre-order your shiny new 4K console. Once signed into your account, you should see your available credit there waiting for you, and you should only have to spend a few dollars in taxes to completely pay off your console.

Pretty sneaky, right? For many of you, this is just the push you need in order to justify your pre-order. The Xbox showing yesterday at Gamescom was decent, but it didn't do much to hype the Xbox One X as a must-own console. There aren't many exclusive experiences that you're only going to find on the XB1X, especially if you're a 1080p gamer, and so a $50 discount is just the thing to tip the scales. Will you be taking advantage of the offer?
