The Xbox One is a game console released by Microsoft in 2013 and is the successor to the Xbox 360. In 2017, Microsoft released the Xbox One S, the Xbox One S Digital Edition, and the Xbox One X in succession. With the arrival of the new generation of Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft has discontinued the Xbox One S digital version and Xbox One X ahead of the release of the next-generation game console in 2020.
According to The Verge, Cindy Walker, Microsoft’s senior director of product marketing for Xbox consoles confirms that Microsoft has discontinued all Xbox One series models at the end of 2020 in order to focus on the production of the Xbox Series X/S.
Interestingly, Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been affected by semiconductor shortages recently, and the supply has been limited, which has also affected sales. In order to alleviate the supply problem and meet the needs of players, it is reported that Sony will continue to produce PlayStation 4 game consoles, with plans to produce 1 million units in 2022. Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S game consoles have performed well recently. For example, Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S cumulative sales in the UK have exceeded 1 million units, and they have surpassed Sony’s PlayStation 5 in the December 2021 sales list.
