IFWT_New Xbox 360

Last November Microsoft celebrated the Xbox 360 console’s 10-year run. Now Microsoft will no longer manufacture new Xbox 360 consoles.

Although, Microsoft is discontinuing the 360 it does not mean you’ll never be able to purchase one again. Microsoft will continue to sell existing Xbox 360 inventory.

Also, if you are worried about still gaining full access to the 360 services, such as gold, online and more; don’t worry because Microsoft won’t be completely pulling all of those services.

We know that many of you became gamers on Xbox 360 and are still active, so it’s important to us that while the overall Xbox gaming experience will evolve and grow, we will continue to support the platform you love in multiple ways:

– Xbox 360 owners will continue to receive Xbox Live services for their console, such as online multiplayer gaming and parties, access to the apps they use today, and Games with Gold and Deals with Gold.

– Xbox Live servers that support Xbox 360 services will also remain online and active. Our Xbox 360 fans can continue to play their favorite games with the full support of Xbox Live.

– Gamers will also be able to continue to buy over 4,000 Xbox 360 games or Xbox 360 accessories at retail and through our Xbox 360 store online, while supplies last.

– Any Xbox 360 hardware will still be supported at xbox.com/support.

– And Xbox One owners will be able to continue to enjoy available Xbox 360 games through Xbox One Backward Compatibility – at no additional cost.

I want to personally thank the Xbox community – that includes the vast and diverse audience of gamers, developers and publishers who brought so much passion and creativity to the Xbox 360. You are the heart of what we do at TEAM XBOX, and you have been critical to the success of Xbox 360.

In the next few weeks, and months to follow, Microsoft will be releasing more plans for gaming on Xbox One, Windows 10, and more.
