After more than ten years in production, the Xbox 360 has come full circle. Xbox boss Phil Spencer announced that Microsoft will cease production on the hardy little last-gen console in a post to the Xbox Wire.

Funny, being that Win 10s' 'Live' feature is basically dependent on Xbox.

Dependent of Xbox Games and Xbox One, not Xbox 360.

Saw the news yesterday in a Machinima YouTube video. Never owned one but thought of getting one several times in the late 2000s, never got one based upon having to pay for the online features where they were free with the PS3.

I love my xbox 360. Good news for xbox fans is that MS is in the process of making those games work on the xbox one.

I've played a bit of mass effect 1 and gears of war 2 on my xbox one and they both played the same as they did on the 360. Hopefully they keep getting the rights for games so they can make them work.

That backwards compatibility is good for the XB1 to have, one thing I always wished for with a system that could play a previous systems games was for some form of graphics improvement which has never panned out.

The good thing about the current consoles is that they are basically computers. Both xbox one and ps4 are x86 based which should mean that as long as the new consoles are the new games should just work with them. Of course that is what the companies are claiming now. I get so aggravated with having to buy games multiple times if I want to play them on a different system. I love my ps3 and xbox 360 but I think the new controllers are better on both platforms. I would much rather play my old games on the ps4 and xbox one.

I personally think driving games are painful (literally a pain to the fingers) to play on the PS4 due to how the trigger buttons are now versus the PS3 controller.

Yet another use for the Xbox 360.  :)

 

Little over half way down the page it says

"The laser is controlled with a standard Xbox 360 controller (“If it breaks, just head to the barracks to get a replacement!”) and a laptop with custom targeting software."
