Have you already been able to get an Xbox Series X — or you snapped a Series S? In any case, Microsoft has already focused on the current gene consoles, as now known. Since the end of 2020 is no longer produced for the Xbox One.
It’s about it: Before Microsoft’s new consoles conquered the market in November 2020, Microsoft initially opened only to set the production of two one models: this was the Xbox One X and the digital version of the Xbox One S.
This is new: By contrast, it was now known that last year no longer has been produced for the other Xbox One consoles. So only the units that were in stock in the retailers were still available and slowly sold out. Theverge.com quotes Cindy Walker, Senior Director of Xbox Console Product Marketing on the topic as follows:
To focus us on the production of Xbox Series X / S, we set the production for all Xbox One consoles at the end of 2020.
In contrast plan at Sony: On the other hand, we have just learned that Sony will continue the production of PS4 in 2022. The reason for this is the persistent scarcity in the PS5. The hardware manufacturer hopes that PlayStation fans who so far could not get a current console will serve at the last generation.

After all, new cross gene titles such as Horizon Forbidden West ensure that the load gene remains attractive. With Microsoft, the situation is different because the Series S is far more available than Series X or PS5. Fans to whom it is too cumbersome to keep an eye on sales time windows for the Series X and then rush as quickly as possible, instead, can instead access the powerful, but also significantly cheaper console.
What do you think about Microsoft’s decision and did you already suspect that or are you surprised?
