Xbox One X is Microsoft's fastest-selling Xbox pre-order

Microsoft stops selling the original Xbox One

Still, the system has built up a good userbase, and we've seen a number of variations with the original system model, including awesome Call of Duty and Forza-based systems.

With the impending launch of the Xbox One X, Microsoft has gone ahead and discontinued the original Xbox One model- thereby maintaining their two model strategy, until now the Xbox One and the Xbox One S, and from now on, Xbox One S and Xbox One X.

The upcoming Xbox One X console is the best yet, packing 12GB of GDDR5 memory, a GPU capable of 6 TFLOPs of performance, and 320GB/sec of memory bandwidth. So it kind of is "old news" at this point.




Microsoft's Store at the USA no longer has the product listed for purchase while at UK Xbox One is still listed but shows sold out.

Can you believe that Microsoft released the original Xbox One back in 2013, but then the new and improved Xbox One S a year ago which was 40% smaller than the original Xbox One. Hey, can't win them all. Microsoft's official store has already sold out, for example. "We're excited to see our loyal community of gamers get hands on with the console and to see everything that the most powerful console has to offer". With the market share of the original Xbox One largely being supplanted by the newer Xbox One S, Microsoft could put its resources somewhere else, most likely in developing its contender for the next generation of consoles.

The original Xbox One was first revealed in May 2013 at a highly criticized press conference.
