Microsoft: Xbox 360 To Last Another Three Years, Receive 100 New Games

Posted on Wednesday, September 4 @ 09:12:29 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

Despite the fact that Xbox One will be launching in just a couple months, Microsoft has no intention of phasing out its current gaming machine anytime soon.

During the Citi Global Technology Conference yesterday, Microsoft's Xbox chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi discussed the future of Xbox 360. Apparently another 100 games are still on the way, which will carry the console well into 2016.

We've seen our Xbox Live subscription service continue to grow. We're up to 48 million members now. We're shipping more games than we've ever done before. Those are things I look to to say, 'hey we can grow not just top line revenue but also profitability.'

We're going to continue to invest in Xbox 360, and the two devices can work in concert. So it's not like the day we ship Xbox One your 360 won't work. We'll continue to support it.

Do you plan on hanging onto your Xbox 360 for another few years? Are you confident in Microsoft's commitment to supporting the platform for three more years, or do you think it will end up being just another place to play downgraded ports of third-party games? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
