Microsoft Officially Kills Off Launch Xbox One

Microsoft stops selling 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.

Any original Xbox One's that people saw in stores after this point was from previously available stocks or second-hand used trade-ins.

"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".

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.

Guy Lister, GAME's retail COO said: "Our customers have been eagerly awaiting Xbox One X since the announce of Project Scorpio". The PlayStation 4 quickly zoomed ahead of Xbox One.

Conflict in Myanmar Worsens, Nearly 100 People Killed
Deadly violence has worsened in Myanmar's Rakhine state in the last three days from Sunday 27 August 2017, with almost 100 people killed.

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. Whether Microsoft decides to keep the Xbox One in United Kingdom or not is still not revealed.

If you've always wanted to purchase the original Xbox One that Microsoft launched back in 2013, it is too late.

Microsoft is now full steam ahead with its new system models, even going as far as to introduce a number of new Xbox One S bundles, including ones themed around Gears of War 4 (that sweet, sweet 2TB console), Battlefield 1, and, as of late, the Minecraft bundle that looks like a dream come true for some fans - although a bit ugly for normal gamers.

While Microsoft's latest console is the most powerful one now in existence, its dominance might not last for very long.
