Original Xbox One Was Discontinued After the S Launched

Microsoft stops selling the original Xbox One

In fact, the company hasn't made an original Xbox One in over a year, confirming that production ended when the Xbox One S was first introduced.

It was during this month that store shelves were finally running out of the launch edition of the original Xbox One.

Many people have noticed that the original Xbox One console has been selling out at major retailers recently and it was reported that this was due to the console being discontinued.

Speaking to Glixel, an un-named Microsoft spokesperson confirmed news surrounding the original console, 'As is typical for the console industry, we stopped manufacturing the original Xbox One when we introduced Xbox One S'.

And then there's the Xbox One X itself, which Microsoft will be pushing on a hardcore level starting November 7 when it officially becomes available. Still, let's pour one out for the bulky monstrosity that kickstarted this present generation of Xbox gaming. But if you really want one, you can get a refurbished model of the original Xbox One for $199.

Looking forward to the Xbox One X - a console upstaged by its own acronym nearly being XBOX - it's very clear thanks to pre-orders that this brand does still mean something.

The Xbox One X version was on show at gamescom 2017, and early impressions reveal a noticeable visual upgrade over the PS4 Pro version.

Original Xbox Ones have been gradually harder and harder to find over the past year, and Microsoft has only been promoting the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X in that time anyway.
