Back in 2020, just before the launch of the Xbos Series X / S, Microsoft announced that It had stopped the production of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition.
It turns out that Microsoft had also quietly stop producing the standard version of the Xbox One S at the end of 2020 as well.
The move was done so more focus could be put on the Xbox Series X / S, senior director of Xbox console product marketing told The Verge.
It paid off, Microsoft seems to still be able to meet demand for the more affordable Series S.
The secret, as Xbox chief told The Verge back in 2020, is that they could make more Series S chips in the same die space as the Series X chips.
Microsoft only let the news out of the bag and confirmed it was true after Bloomberg reported rumors that Sony was planning on ending PlayStation4 production at the end of 2021.
In their latest statement Sony Confirmed that PS4 will continue in production as PlayStation 5 shortages continues.
