Xbox One


 

If you waited until now to purchase a new launch-version of the Xbox One, then you’re pretty much out of luck.

Microsoft has taken the regular Xbox One off both its U.S. and U.K. online stores. While you can still purchase a refurbished Xbox One from the U.S. store, the U.K. store lists the console as sold out.

That means that you’re only options for purchasing new Xbox One consoles will either be the slimmer Xbox One S or the upcoming Xbox One X. The Xbox One X is certainly going to be Microsoft’s focus going forward. Most recently, the console had an incredibly successful pre-order run of its limited Project Scorpio Edition, and the standard version is supposed to be available for pre-order sometime in September before its November 7th launch.

While this might seem like a sudden move, Microsoft has been phasing out the Xbox One for some time now, having halted production on the console a few months ago. Now it looks like it’s officially done.

R.I.P., launch Xbox One.

The fat Xbox One is officially no more

The Xbox One is dead. Long live the Xbox One.
