The 10-year- old odyssey has come to an end. Released in 2005 & celebrating a decade in November 2015 Microsoft has announced it will stop making the Xbox 360. The head of Xbox Phil Spencer stated the issues & problems associated with making the decade old console are “starting to creep up”. Spencer went on to say “Xbox 360 means a lot to everyone in Microsoft,” “We will continue to sell existing inventory of Xbox 360 consoles, with availability varying by country.”
Those concerned with Xbox live will be relieved that support will continue for the foreseeable future. Hardware will still be supported & buying 360 games will go on via the online store.
Microsoft’s most successful platform, selling over 84 million units as of 2014 worldwide will be missed. Gaming tech has come a long way in a short time, yet we’re sad and nostalgic to see our 360 go!
See if you agree the Best & Worst 25!
