    After the console has had more than a 10 year run, Microsoft will now be stopping production of the Xbox 360. Microsoft has said that Xbox Live servers will still remain online for the time being, so that players can still access all the features of the console. The Xbox 360 has sold over 80 million units to date.

    At least they keep the live servers up, that's a plus.

    I thought it would've stayed in production for just a little longer. Ah well, rip lil' guy. Thanks for all the Halo 3 hacking memories. :(

    There itself.
    Indeed signifying the end of an era. A great one at that! (Frequency illusion: just today I saw someone's ad selling an Xbox 360 for dirt cheap. It's that time again! Reminds me about the time I was rushing to buy PS1 games when the PS2 was at its prime...)

    To bad that for retail 360's MS has implemented a ping patch so Xlink Kai etc are pretty much out of the question.
    Luckily, FSD has LiNK and hacked consoles can access Xlink without a hitch.

    It's inevitable.
    The vast majority upgraded to the One and a handful is playing on the 360.
    It be way to costly to keep the Live servers running for just those few people that occasionally play a game.

    It'll be a few years before Live for 360 has been shut down but in the end, it will happen.

    Here's to my elite that's been going on strong. And the white one of the same era I rescued. Hopefully this will mean a JTAG for the last dashboard release? :P

    Hopefully, Microsoft will use this as a reason to add more games to the Xbox One's 360 Emulator or to at least improve on it (15-20FPS on Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts is not an acceptable framerate for games, especially this one)
    one can be wishful though....

    maybe, I have not tested it in a while since I heard nothing about the 360 Emulator being improved at all so I had no reason to retest it.

    Will never happen.
    With the RGH, dashboard versions don't matter anymore.
    The console is exploitable and can't be patched so why search for a new hack?

    If you have nothing better to say then don't reply.
    This is just trolling.
