Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox One X and Xbox One S Digital Edition Will No Longer be Manufactured

LudicrousSpeed said:
If the Lockhart is real, it makes sense to discontinue the Scorpio. A 4TF Lockhart would be seen as weaker than a 6TF Scorpio by those who don’t know any better. Also the Lockhart needs to be pretty cheap.

Will be interesting to see what they price the Xbone S at.

Then MS would have to explain to the plebs what the Lockhart can actually do.

Many might not even care. "Its cheap and plays all the games? Good enough."

Thats exactly why I thought the One X was a weird release.


I suspect this is the last time we see a late gen update that doesn't transition into entry level next gen system.

If anything, they will probably reconsider how a mid gen upgrade is handled. Its a fantastic console but likely expensive to produce. I thought a redesign might happen to make it cheaper, but a Series S would be even better than that.

If you want a premium console, buy a Xbox Series console. If you want budget hardware (maybe $149-199), get a Xbox One S.

Also, we still need a 9th gen upgrade to really hit that 8K target.

On a side note, many retailers seem to be out of stock. I am seeing price gouging on Xbox hardware, which is surprising.

I wonder if they were losing too much money on the Xbox one X.

I would guarantee it. Especially when there were sales for between $300-$350. Also they sold some for $199.99 through their online store back in late winter. 



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 130 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 110 million (was 73, then 96 million)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Nope, X1X was always sold at profit from what we know, at most some "sales" they lost pocket change.

Necessary, but still surprising.

Probably a good move as the Series X ultimately makes the Xbox One X a redundant device... And may be an indicator the Series X will slot in at the same price point. (Salt. Pinches and stuff.)

Sounds good to me. Get rid of the clutter. 1 last gen sku is enough.

I see a lot of people having that mindset for the PS4 as well. The PS4 Pro could very well be discontinued this year, and the PS4 Slim will likely get its price slashed to $199.99. Depending on PS5 pricing, even $249.99 might be too steep for a PS4 Slim.

I am very curious to see how Sony handles the PS4 going forwards, both in terms of pricing and how soon they discontinue each model.

It does seem to make little sense to have the base PS4, PS4 Pro, and PS5 all being pushed at the same time.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I'm curious how Series S ports will be handled for the first few years.

When we're dealing with games built around current gen systems, it should comfortably be able to to hit 4k, 30fps. I think its actually going to make Series X look a bit redundant initially, at least where third party games are concerned. Series X will for sure have higher graphical settings but I don't think they'll be that noticable, similar to most high vs Ultra PC settings.

Hmmm... was looking into buying an all digital edition as a system just for Gamepass. Probably not going to get to the price I want now :-/

The regular S will probably be $150 soon, maybe $99 on Black Friday.
