San Francisco: Tech giant Microsoft has stopped manufacturing all Xbox One consoles, media reports say. According to The Verge, the company originally discontinued the Xbox One X and digital Xbox One S ahead of the Xbox Series X launch, then quietly stopped manufacturing the Xbox One S at the end of 2020.
"To focus on production of Xbox Series X/S, we stopped production for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020," Cindy Walker, senior director of Xbox console product marketing, was quoted as saying in a statement to The Verge.
As per the report, the company seems able to meet the demand for the $299 Xbox Series S, though. Speaking just after the launch of the Xbox Series X/S in 2020, Xbox chief Phil Spencer told The Verge that the company had built more Xbox Series X consoles than Series S, but that ultimately the lower price point of the Series S would win out. "We can actually build more of the Series S (chips) in the same (chip) die space as we can the Series X," Spencer was quoted as saying.
