Microsoft has discontinued the original Xbox One

Microsoft and Sony are Talking About Cross Platform Play There's 'a bit of Game of Thrones' going on with console cross play, says Tim Sweeney

So from now on, your only option is the Xbox One S or forthcoming Xbox One X.

On its online store, Microsoft only sells Xbox One S and Xbox One X.

Microsoft is no longer making the original Xbox One, the company confirmed to Glixel this week. The console's version, exclusively available via pre-order, comes with a tweaked design plus a vertical stand. While the launch of the newer, more powerful system is an auspicious event for the company, Microsoft revealed that it would now stop selling the original#Xbox One console that debuted in 2013.

Microsoft has begun preparing the Xbox One for another major update this fall, bringing a wide range of new features to the console.

Customers who really want one can pick up a refurbished model of the original Xbox One for $199.

Microsoft revealed that it has stopped retailing the original version of its current generation of the console in the United States.

Microsoft's Xbox One isn't getting crushed, but it's certainly not holding its own against Sony's PlayStation 4.

"Metal Slug XX" and "Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine" are two of the latest backwards compatible Xbox 360 games for Xbox One. As it is a limited period offer, you need to hurry up and it will be valid only as long as the stocks last. The smaller console was widely accepted and praised over the original. 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 past year such as Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, and Battlefield 1. That crossplay works between the PC and the Xbox One. As one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, this should be a welcome sight for many, as the Xbox brand pushes further into more regions. It's the best of both worlds, thus we think it should do just fine, and will proudly take the original's place on the throne.
