Xbox One launched in 2013 and after over 3 years Microsoft has discontinued the console. According to the company, they will only produce Xbox One S along with the upcoming Xbox One X. With Xbox One discontinued, Microsoft believes that the move is “typical” for the industry.
Microsoft confirmed to Glixel that the manufacturing of Xbox One discontinued as soon as Xbox One S was introduced in the console market as a hardware refresh. “As is typical for the console industry, we stopped manufacturing the original Xbox One when we introduced Xbox One S”.
However, Xbox One X is over a couple of months away from launch and developers have been praising the console for its hardware.
The latest studio to praise the console is 4A Games which revealed that the power of the console will ensure that Metro Exodus looks amazing.
The power of the Xbox One X will allow to ensure the game looks amazing. The trailer was recorded in-engine from a gameplay sequence players will find later on in the game. We removed things like HUD, and Quick Time Events prompts, choreographed the playthrough and music to fit the needs of the trailer, but the game looks like what you see.
Also, Microsoft is very confident that gamers will recognize the value of Xbox One X. According to Aaron Greenberg, when Xbox One X comes to the market, players will see what 4K looks like and will be very “impressed” by it and added that lots of side by side comparisons will pop up on the internet which will also help in gamers recognizing the Xbox One X value.
Xbox One X will be available on November 7, 2017, in the US and will be priced at $499 and will come with games such as Forza Motorsport 7, Halo 5 and more.
