Microsoft stopped making all Xbox One consoles

Microsoft has confirmed that it has stopped manufacturing all Xbox One consoles.

The tech giant discontinued the Xbox One X and digital Xbox One S ahead of the Xbox Series X’s launch in late 2020, with production of the standard Xbox One S also being discontinued that year.

Cindy Walker, senior director of product marketing for the Xbox console, told The Verge: “In order to focus on Xbox Series X/S production, we have discontinued production of all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020.”

LADbible has contacted Microsoft for comment.

The confirmation reflects how quickly the next-gen may become old news in the gaming world as technology continues to advance at a rapid pace.

In fact, Sony is currently working on a VR headset that will take VR gaming “to a whole new level.”

The PlayStation VR2 will work with the PlayStation 5 and will feature an ultra-high-definition 4K HDR display inside the headset.

A new set of controllers is also being created to accompany the headset, while new sensory features are also being introduced including eye-tracking, headset feedback such as vibration, and 3D audio.

“PlayStation VR2 takes virtual reality gaming to a whole new level, enabling a greater sense of presence and allowing gamers to escape into game worlds like never before,” said PlayStation’s Hideaki Nishino.

“With headsets and controllers in hand, gamers will experience a greater variety of sensations like no other, thanks to the creativity of the game worlds created by our world-class developers and the latest technologies built into the hardware.

“Building on our innovations from the PS5, PlayStation VR2 adds a true next-gen experience with high-fidelity visuals, new sensory features and improved tracking, plus a simplified single-cable setup.”

The first game for the new system, which does not yet have a confirmed release date, set in the world of the popular Horizon franchise, has also been revealed.

Horizon Call of the Mountain promises to offer an entirely new adventure designed specifically for PlayStation VR2, Sony said, as players take on the role of a new character, who will meet series protagonist Aloy.

Sony has yet to confirm whether PlayStation VR2 will launch this year or not, so keep your eyes peeled.
