However, one can no longer buy a new Xbox One standard console in the USA after the apparent discontinuation.

Right now, the only retail versions of the Xbox One that is available for purchase is the slimmer Xbox One S and the souped-up Xbox One X, Ubergizmo reports.

Manufacturing of the first Xbox One ended a few months ago but, as reported by Kotaku UK, last week marked the first time you could no longer buy one of the consoles from Microsoft's online stores. On the flip side, the company pointed to "lagging Xbox One sales" as the reason for dips in new software and pre-owned sales numbers.

Microsoft is also paving way for the Xbox One X which it recently introduced to compete with the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Software giant Microsoft has stopped selling its original Xbox One in the USA and United Kingdom, reports said on Saturday. Forza 7 will be huge, and there are a bunch of Xbox One games getting enhancement updates, but there aren't really any showstoppers to speak of.

Bomber, gunmen attack Kabul mosque
The number of those who died and were injured is not yet clear, though reports have said some guards are confirmed dead. Al Jazeera reported a suicide bomber detonated his explosives outside the Imam Zaman mosque in the capital of Kabul .

Production for the original model of the Xbox One has ended, according to the Microsoft Store. Microsoft said it saw record-breaking sell-out times for the console, which is now sold out in many countries. 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.

If you wanted an Xbox, you would have two options. The smaller console was widely accepted and praised over the original. It also features a 4k-Blu-Ray player and it also features a very appealing price tag of $300.

The Xbox One X comes out on November 7.
