Microsoft Discontinues Original Xbox One Model

Microsoft Discontinues Original Xbox One Model

Microsoft has announced that it's ending production of the original Xbox One console in both USA and the United Kingdom in favour of the Xbox One S.

As the famous saying goes, out with the old and in with the new as Microsoft heralds the arrival of the Xbox One X with the discontinuation of 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.

At this point, the discontinuation is just a formality anyway- the Xbox One S had long de facto replaced the original model.

"The speed at which we sold through our initial pre-order supply surpassed expectations, and what we experienced with pre-orders for the original Xbox One console". The PS3's lifespan barely had any genuinely system-selling titles outside of MGS 4, The Last of Us and the Uncharted series, and in turn we saw an Xbox One propped by Forza and Killer Instinct as Halo's Master Chief Collection crashed and burned.

You'll deal with that attention the media aspect of it, the good and the bad attention to it, compared to Kaepernick . You've probably seen it play out on your teams, or your children's teams.

An updated model with vastly improved hardware, Xbox One X, is set to launch November 7, becoming the third Xbox One model since 2013.

It doesn't come as a surprise that Microsoft would want to focus on its Xbox One S line. Microsoft struggled to sell the Xbox's "all-in-one" message that emphasized entertainment.

It kind of makes sense, because the Xbox One S is a sleeker system and supports 4K Ultra Blu-Rays, whereas the original Xbox One doesn't. The Kinetic Sensor from Xbox One helped in narrowing the gap six months later after the console was launched.
