Microsoft Xbox 360 is finally a goodbye 10 years after the tech giant launched the Games Console.
The American multinational technology company (Microsoft) has confirmed they will be stopping the manufacturing of the Xbox 360 game consoles.
There is no doubt that Microsoft Xbox 360 Game Console’s was a huge success, but this end of the road is surely a disappointment for the console lovers. Although, the announcement by Microsoft was foreseen by fans, but no one knew they will finally pull the plug at this time.
According to a report on News.XBox.com; the tech giant confirmed they will discontinue manufacturing of the Xbox 360 Games Console. But the good news is; you will still be able to buy xbox 360 and xbox 360 games.
“Xbox 360 means a lot to everyone in Microsoft. And while we’ve had an amazing run, the realities of manufacturing a product over a decade old are starting to creep up on us. Which is why we have made the decision to stop manufacturing new Xbox 360 consoles. We will continue to sell existing inventory of Xbox 360 consoles, with availability varying by country.”
Also, the tech giant confirmed they will continue to support the Xbox 360 Console platform in multiple ways, such as:
- The support of Xbox 360 hardware will continue at xbox.com/support.
- Xbox Live servers that support Xbox 360 services will also remain online and active. And that the Xbox 360 fans can continue to play with the full support of Xbox Live.
- Owners of Xbox 360 will continue to receive Xbox Live services for their game console’s, such as online multiplayer gaming, access to the apps and Games (and more).
- Gamers will also be able to continue to buy Xbox 360 games or Xbox 360 accessories at the retail and through Microsoft’s Xbox 360 store online, while the supplies last.
- They also mentioned that Xbox One owners will be able to continue to enjoy available Xbox 360 games through Xbox One Backward Compatibility, and no additional cost will be required.
The truth be told; there is no doubt that we’ll all miss our lovely Microsoft Xbox 360 Console.
