Microsoft stops retailing the original Xbox One gaming consoles
Aug 29 2017
Microsoft has been adamant that the Xbox One X can run better/faster/stronger than the PS4 Pro, but has offered little definitive proof.
In the United Kingdom, the console is listed as "out of stock", according to news website TechRadar.
No surprise here, as Microsoft has set the ball in motion to end production and sales of the original Xbox Oneconsoles. You can also pre-order the new Xbox One SMinecraft Limited Edition bundle for just $399, which includes a custom-skinned console and controller.
Back in March 2016, Microsoft showed interest in connecting the Xbox line to other gaming networks, including PS4 and Nintendo's own online service.
"Metal Slug XX" and "Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine" are two of the latest backwards compatible Xbox 360 games for Xbox One. The smaller console was widely accepted and praised over the original. European magazine Game Reactor caught up with Xbox's Head of Marketing Aaron Greenberg at the event, who let slip that the team was in talks with Playstation for cross-platform play. The Xbox One X also packs a powerful punch as far as performance is concerned due to its high specs and it is also capable of rendering content at "true 4K". Of course, expanding the reach of Xbox One to a larger audience could arguably be an equally important change.
