More than 10 years after a Xbox 360 first launched, Microsoft has motionless to finish prolongation on a many popular console to date.
Phil Spencer, conduct of Microsoft’s Xbox division, done a proclamation in a post to a Xbox Wire. The infancy of a proclamation is spent reminiscing about a history and impact of a system, before detailing how Microsoft will support the console and those still enjoying it in a future.
In short, all is staying some-more or reduction a same for a time being. The last-generation Xbox Live servers will stay online, permitting Xbox 360 owners to play games online and use other Live services, and Microsoft will still offer online support for a console. Both a Games with Gold and Deals with Gold promotions will continue. Xbox 360 games will still be accessible for squeeze digitally and physically—though Microsoft here adds a premonition of “as prolonged as reserve last,” so don’t be astounded if certain games start to become scarce.
Oddly, Microsoft also records that “the stop in prolongation of a Xbox 360 will not outcome a Xbox One’s retrograde harmony program,” that doesn’t seem to offer most purpose other than to remind people that pronounced module exists, and hey, maybe we should only buy an Xbox One already.
If you’re still meddlesome in shopping an Xbox 360, you’ll need to act fast. Once a stream batch sells out, that’s it.
