Microsoft has admitted in an interview with The Large they had stopped the production of their Xbox One consoles in 2020. Officially, the calendar was that the Xbox One X had been discreetly off production in July 2020, while the Xbox One S continued to be produced. Until the end of 2020.
This new intervenes after the revelation that Sony, who had planned to stop the production of the PlayStation 4 in 2021, rather decided to continue to produce the console to offset the inability to manufacture more PlayStation 5. It also meets the Question to know why Xbox does not follow a similar schema and increases production on Xbox Ones: they have already stopped production.
To focus on the production of the Xbox Series X / S, we stopped the production of all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020, said Cindy Walker, principal director of Xbox console products marketing. While nobody could have predicted that there would be such a problem with respect to semiconductor shortages in the global problem, and the expeditious shipping problems. But this is the main reason for the current Xbox Series X shortages that have been observed in 2021 and coming in 2022.
And yet, while Microsoft and Sony had to reduce their sales figures due to shortages, they always sell well and quickly. This is why Amazon has recently made the members of Amazon Prime have the first choices on the reinserts for the Xbox Series X.
Nevertheless, for those who wish to have the last generation console, do not worry. It will simply not be the Xbox Series X.
While Microsoft had initially built more Xbox Series X consoles, there is simply a greater ability to make Xbox Series S at the moment. You can actually build more than the S series [Chips] in the same [Chip] die the space we can the X series, said Phil Spencer, the pattern of Xbox.
Thus, we may attend an increase in the Xbox Series S cheaper during 2022. It may be less powerful than the Xbox Series X, but it is available. Sometimes you have to work with what we have.
