Microsoft No Longer Selling Original Xbox One
If you’ve always wanted to purchase the original Xbox One that Microsoft launched back in 2013, you’re out of luck. The company is no longer selling the original console in the United States. It’s only selling the retail versions of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S via its online store.
Customers who really want one can pick up a refurbished model of the original Xbox One for $199. The original Xbox One has actually disappeared from the company’s online store in the United States without a trace.
The company didn’t really make a big fuss about the fact that it’s no longer selling the original console. On the other hand, the console remains listed on Microsoft’s UK online store, but mentions that the SKU is “sold out.”
It’s highly unlikely that units will be restocked. Customers who really want to purchase an original Xbox One can try checking with the company’s retail partners to see if they have any stock remaining because Microsoft seems to be done with it for good.
Microsoft is now focusing its energies on the Xbox One X, the most powerful console it has ever built. The company opened pre-orders for the console last week and later said that it was the “fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever.” The company didn’t provide any concrete numbers to back that statement up with, though.
