Microsoft is discontinuing the Xbox One X and the Xbox One S Digital Edition in anticipation of the Xbox Series X launching this holiday season, the company said Thursday.
That will leave the Microsoft Xbox One S as the only console from the current generation in Microsoft’s lineup. (The difference between the Xbox One S and the Xbox One S Digital Edition is that the One S includes a physical Blu-ray drive, while the Digital Edition does not. The Digital Edition relies on downloaded content instead.)
Microsoft said it’s making its decision as it moves toward launching the Xbox Series X console this fall. “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,” Microsoft said in an emailed statement. “Xbox One S will continue to be manufactured and sold globally. Gamers can check with their local retailers for more details on Xbox One hardware availability.”
