Xbox 360

Microsoft will stop manufacturing new Xbox 360 consoles, the company announced. It will continue to sell existing inventory, with availability varying by country.

Xbox 360 turned 10 years old last November. It boasts “over 78 billion gaming hours played, nearly 486 billion Gamerscore on 27 billion achievements and over 25 billion hours spent in apps over its lifetime.”

Xbox Live services will continue to operate on Xbox 360, including multiplayer gaming, parties, app access, Games with Gold, and Deals with Gold. Xbox 360 retail games will also continue to be sold, and Xbox 360 hardware support will still be covered.

Microsoft will be sharing more of its plans for gaming on Xbox One, Windows 10, “and beyond” in the coming weeks and months.
