Microsoft Cuts Xbox One X and All-Digital One S Production Ahead of Series X Launch

We know that the next generation of Xbox and Playstation is coming out soon. Of course, while some people are happy that they’d get their hands on the new consoles, others are waiting for the price drop the older ones would get. Well, in Xbox’s case, the story may be a little different.

According to a recent article posted on the Verge, Microsoft has officially stopped Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition from production. This is their way to prepare their productions lines, perhaps, for the upcoming consoles. The article claims that shortages of the consoles have been there for quite some time now but this official statement confirms the reason.

As we ramp into the future with Xbox Series X, we’re taking the natural step of stopping production on Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition..

Now, there can be a couple of “legitimate” reasons as to why the company chose to go this route. One can be that they want to completely focus on the upcoming Series X and the budget model Series S which may use the same production line as the existing consoles.

Another reason for this shift may be to get people to buy the new consoles for the holiday season. As mentioned previously, people usually take this time to go for the older ones which drop in value. These consoles work fine but with the newer edition, are “old” now.

So, if you find a current-generation console like the One X, grab it. Chances are prices are gonna hike and you can flip it over for a profit. If not, then grab it for yourself because the prices go crazy. Meanwhile, we may see the Xbox Series X and or S in the coming month or two.
