Microsoft isn't selling the original Xbox One anymore

Microsoft isn't selling the original Xbox One anymore

Originally released almost four years ago (November 2013), the original console will be quickly living in the shadow of the Xbox One X when it arrives later this year, and the Xbox One S already surpasses its abilities as is. The two companies have fought a rather bitter war over the last decade, though it appears an armistice might be on the horizon.

"They'll find that even though they're competing on the hardware front there are actually areas of mutual benefit and we should all work together to break down those barriers, for openness and cross play between all platforms".

The discussion on Microsoft partnering with Sony sounds like it's still on, for now, but nothing's on paper yet or announced by either party.

Developers will be able to download the update and experience the new interface that supports Arabic and the operating system interface to offer them insight into what will be available in the future.

But does Sony want it?

Crossplay would be a big deal to both console companies but it would certainly be a bigger deal for Sony.

The Xbox One X comes out on November 7.

Allowing players from the PS4 would just be icing on the cake.

"Within just a few days, we saw record-setting sell-out times and are now sold out in many countries around the world". When we consider the PS4 and PS4 Pro, in 2017 alone we've seen huge releases like Uncharted, Horizon, Nioh, Persona 5, Gravity Rush, and Yakuza.

Sony's PS4 has become the console of choice for users, and is now the best-selling console globally.

While the 4K-compatible Xbox One X isn't being billed as a next-generation console, it's plenty clear the first model of Microsoft's Xbox One is meant to be a thing of the past. Microsoft has not said whether they have exclusivity in perpetuity.

Mr. Greenberg states that Microsoft is "absolutely" in talks with Sony regarding CrossPlay.
