    Microsoft Discontinuing Xbox One

    Tl;dr: In preparation for their new "generationless" console launch, Microsoft will be discontinuing to the original Xbox One (2013 version). The current models available will be the Xbox One X and the Xbox One S.

    Please note that all Xbox One X games, for the time being, will still be playable on the original Xbox One console.

    The original Xbox One will go down as another example of how Microsoft grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory, going from the most popular console of the last generation to selling only half as much as the PlayStation 4.

    It is therefore not with much sadness we bid farewell to the device, as Microsoft cease sales of the console in the US, according to Kotaku.


    Only the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X are currently visible on Microsoft’s website in US, and in UK the VCR-sized device is marked as Sold Out.


    The failure of the original Xbox One launch was largely laid at the feet of Microsoft forgetting gaming consoles were for gamers, with their victory in the last generation leaving them so complacent that they believed they could focus on home entertainment first. With the Xbox One X Microsoft hoped to wipe out this reputation by releasing the most powerful gaming console, and with the device already having “recording-setting” sales, maybe this time Microsoft will get it right.

    In a surprise business decision, Microsoft will not be releasing the One X and investors have urged the company to scrap the Xbox brand altogether.

    Microsoft has combined the Xbox brand with Nintendo to join forces. Halo 6 will be a Switch exclusive title.

    This is a good thing. MS is leading the way with this gerationless console thing. Hopefully it means we keep the same format always and our games just become like PC titles. Playable forever.

    I may be wrong but i think Nintendo kinda do this with thee
    3ds hand helds in some. respect? Either way this sounds good.

    I was just kidding around haha. But I think backwards compatibility will be simpler now that both MS and Don't have chosen a standard PC like architecture (and Nintendo with their ARM architecture too). I think we'll see future iterations of consoles will be compatible with at least the previous generation of hardware going forward

    Lol. It's funny that your phone autocorrected Sony to Don't. Microsoft does what Sony don't.

    It has been collecting dust since 2014. I bought it for Scalebound, and it never came out.

    Nintendo fans still don't buy it because it's not Mario or Zelda.

    Same. I'm an idiot and bought the white one with Sunset Overdrive and mainly wanted it for Scalebound. I sold that one and even got a black one as a gift about a year later that I ended up giving back to them since I never played it and felt bad they spent that kind of money.

    Im sure they felt you was an inconsiderate little toad.

    "Weve spent loads on an xbox for you."

    "I dont play it have it back"

    Smells of spoiled. Id never allow a games console in your life again.

    That was the one game that made me consider ever getting an Xbox. But guess not anymore. Which sucks because it looked amazing!

    Sega has announced a reverse takeover bid and just bought out Microsoft. They're releasing the Dreamcast 2 with Xbox One X specs.

    It's more likely Microsoft would buy out Sega.

    Honestly, I wish they had done that back in the day. The way I imagined it going was:

    Microsoft buy out SEGA and give them enough cash to keep producing/marketing the Dreamcast while pouring their ideas for the future (Xbox OG + 360) into the next system.

    This would have given Microsoft an easy way into consumers hearts (IDGAF who bankrolls Sega, just give me the damn games! ) and Sega would have been saved. I think things would look completely different now. Perhaps, we would have seen some of the excellent games released for the Dreamcast that were canceled and this would have cut into Sony's complete dominance of the PS2 era seeing the large headstart Sega had.

    I mean...a lot could (and probably would) have eventually gone wrong but hey...at least Sega would have stood a fighting chance. Also, Lord only knows how many billions (or tens or billions) Microsoft has thrown down the Xbox moneypit. Give Sega $10 Billion dollars and the game changes.

    Maybe.

    If they would have done that, they would have had Sega's games, and they probably wouldn't have been compelled to make Halo to show off the XB. I'd be sad if I couldn't have played Halo: Combat Evolved.

    I would peg that at the launch of the PS5, given that ms said that they are now "generationless"

    All one s games playable means the decision to get a ps 5 over a one X becomes challenging.

    One console 2 Years old (based on the 5 landing 2019) with a massive 200+ games on offer and playable or. 5 that may only have launch titles (based on Sony changing the format and no backwards compatability)

    I still have the old fat one. Hoping it'll still get software support for awhile since it's basically the same as the Xbox One S but fatter and without 4K support. I don't play it much anyway, but I use it for the odd game or two.
