Xbox One S 2TB was ‘limited edition’, may be sold out forever

If you want a 2TB Xbox One S then you better act fast, because Microsoft has just confirmed that it’s a limited-time model.

It turns out that the Xbox One S with 2TB of storage was intended to be a “special launch edition”, and would only be available in limited quantities. This will come as bad news for customers who live in markets where the 2TB version has already sold out, like in the UK. In fact, Eurogamer is reporting that the 2TB model is unavailable at “most retailers” globally.

Today’s revelation came courtesy of a statement sent to GameSpot, in which Microsoft said: “The 2TB Xbox One S was released as a special launch edition in limited quantities only. We’re thrilled at the amount of interest we’ve received and we are always looking for opportunities to offer choice and fantastic value to our fans. Please check your local retailer to determine whether the 2TB Xbox One S is still available in your market.”

The Xbox One S was launched in three variants: 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB. However, it now seems possible that Microsoft may never produce any more white Xbox One S 2TB models, which could send the value of existing consoles skyrocketing.

However, there’s still a chance to bag the higher storage option; Microsoft has already confirmed that a Gears of War 4 version of the console will be released as a bundle later this year, which will feature 2TB storage.

The Xbox One S (2TB) went on sale on August 2. The other two models, meanwhile, are still unavailable to buy outright.
