An Ode to the Original Xbox One

An Ode to the Original Xbox One

Just last week Microsoft announced that production and distribution of the original Xbox One had officially ceased.

This means that you'll only be able to find the Xbox One S and Xbox One X going forward.  

To show our respect for 2013's ridiculed home console we present an ode to the original Xbox One:

What words, so small, can be used to explain

A console so large, with power brick to boot  

A camera that follows your every whim

Was abandoned before the console went slim

 

In competition with the almighty PS4

Although you tried to offer so much more  

Fans turned to critics, unable to accept  

The innovations that were promised in heft  

 

It took three controllers to finally get it right  

But the pro was worth it, despite its price hike  

And now we say goodbye, before you get to see

The Scorpio that you soon came to be  

 

And just like your untimely demise  

This lyric will now come to an abrupt... 

 

Thanks for all the memories OG Xbox One. RIP.
