Microsoft has confirmed it has stopped making all Xbox One consoles.
The tech giant actually discontinued the Xbox One X and the digital Xbox One S before the launch of the Xbox Series X at the end of 2020, with a production of the standard Xbox One S also halted that year.
Cindy Walker, senior director of Xbox console product marketing, told The Verge: “To focus on the production of Xbox Series X / S, we stopped production for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020.”
The confirmation reflects how quickly the new generation can become old news in the world of gaming, with technology continuing to advance at a rapid rate.
Indeed, Sony is currently working on a virtual reality headset that will take virtual reality 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 go with the headset, while new sensory features including eye-tracking, headset feedback such as vibrations, and 3D audio are being introduced too.
