The Xbox One (formerly Xbox 720) is the third video game console made by Microsoft, succeeding the Xbox 360. [8] It was announced on May 21, 2013.[9] It was first released on 22nd November 2013, ahead of Sony's PlayStation 4.[10] Microsoft marketed the Xbox One as an "all-in-one entertainment system", which is where its name comes from.

The Xbox One S was released in 2016 as a successor to the original Xbox One model, around the same time that the Xbox 360 was discontinued. The Xbox One S has a smaller form factor, and supports both HDR and 4K video. The Xbox One S was praised for its smaller size, visual upgrades, and lack of an external power supply. The Xbox One received another upgrade in 2017: the Xbox One X. The Xbox One X featured upgraded hardware and support for natively rendering video at 4K. The system was succeeded by the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, which launched on November 10, 2020.

On August 29, 2017, Microsoft discontinued the original Xbox One in favor of the Xbox One S and X. The Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition ceased production on July 16, 2020, following the release of the Xbox Series X series, leaving the standard Xbox One S as the only Xbox One model to still be in production.

History[change | change source]
