Microsoft to continue support for 360 for the next FIVE YEARS

#1RahzarXPosted 7/7/2013 6:55:40 PM(edited)
Holy... crap... are they all high out of their minds over at MS headquarters?

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2013/05/25/microsoft-won-39-t-abandon-the-xbox-360-for-at-least-five-years.aspx

The lack of understanding over there is just... out of this world.

For reference: Madden NFL 09 August 12, 2008

That was the last Xbox title released. 2 years into the 360 cycle. And a sports game at that, there were like 10 games released in the 2 years after the 360 came out, only as a saving grace to the developers who were still in production and to ease the passage into the next generation.

We're going to be so behind this generation, 5 years from now, we're going to be getting new 360 games.

Hooray?

Makes it look that way I suppose. I'll edit it.

Still: Microsoft makes Madden?

I didn't know third-party games counted as "Microsoft will continue to support console"

Microsoft is responsible for any and all games that are released on their hardware.

You don't simply make a game and put it on any console you want.

Silly man!

Eh, it doesn't matter really. Microsoft stopped making first-party titles ergo no more support.


It's not like Microsoft pours out their heart and lack of soul to help make a game possible for the third-party devs!

Well regardless, it looks like we're going to get a half-assed Xbox One.

doubtful we'll see games released five years from now for Xbox360, if anything we'll be lucky to see 40 games released from the time Xbox one comes out until the final Xbox 360 game comes out. It might be planned to have X amount of games come out, but eventually once the new system is here, companies will divert resources away from Xbox 360 versions and flat out cut them.
