This announcement follows multiple reports that the console was to cease production with units no longer available for purchase on the Microsoft Store.

Greenberg is also confident about the first party lineup coming to the Xbox One over the next year, mentioning that he is excited about what is to come.

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

Microsoft is only selling the retail versions of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S via its online store. While it's still possible to find an original Xbox One if you're willing to look hard enough, it will likely be used or one of the final models Microsoft ever made.


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

Previous year the software giant released the Xbox One S that was white and had a trimmed look as that of a robot. The PlayStation 4 quickly zoomed ahead of Xbox One.

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 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. You can still buy the Xbox One S, so there's that, but good luck with getting your hands on the Xbox One X, pre-orders for the Scorpio Edition of the console sold out in record time.
