Microsoft to Support the Xbox 360 for Three More Years
Though Microsoft is ready to hit the ground running with the Xbox One, it has yet to put its successful current-gen console to bed.
Microsoft chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi has declared that Microsoft plans on supporting the Xbox 360 for another three years.
“We are going to continue to invest in Xbox 360 and the two devices can work in concert,” Mehdi said while speaking at the Citi Global Technology Conference. “So it isn’t like the day we ship the Xbox One your [Xbox 360] won’t work.
“We will continue to support it. In fact, we’re going to ship over one hundred new games on Xbox 360. So you’ll be able to still play your games, just not on the same exact box.”
The Xbox One launches in 13 territories on November 22 for $499.99.
