Microsoft has stopped selling the original Xbox One

However, one can no longer buy a new Xbox One standard console in the USA after the apparent discontinuation.

Microsoft launched the Xbox One S previous year with a slimmed down look in a robot white style, and also stopped manufacturing the Xbox 360. On the other hand, the console remains listed on Microsoft's United Kingdom online store, but mentions that the SKU is "sold out". You can also pre-order the new Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition bundle for just $399, which includes a custom-skinned console and controller. The first one is to wait for the Xbox One X to be available.

Microsoft stops selling its original Xbox One in the US. If you take a look at the Microsoft Store, you'll be able to find refurbished Xbox One consoles, but no new models. Forza 7 will be huge, and there are a bunch of Xbox One games getting enhancement updates, but there aren't really any showstoppers to speak of.

The partner retailers of Microsoft will soon drop the console when they run out of stock as well.

For the longest time, it appeared that dreams of legitimate #Crossplay between the Microsoft Xbox One and #Sony Playstation 4 was little more than a dream.


Do you still have your Xbox 360?

Among the lineup of Japanese titles coming to Xbox One is Code Vein, Dynasty Warriors 9 and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. Although it's smaller than the original, it houses the power brick, which is an external component of Xbox One.

The Xbox One is no more. The 2016 holiday season also saw the focus on bundles shifting towards the S model at a much lower starting price point at $299, with pack-ins of big games from previous year such as Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, and Battlefield 1.

Are you looking forward to Arabic support on Xbox One going forward? Of course, expanding the reach of Xbox One to a larger audience could arguably be an equally important change.
