Microsoft Still Committed to Xbox 360 for Several Years

Despite the Xbox One being just months from launch Microsoft has moved to ease fears that it will abandon the Xbox 360, just like it did the original Xbox last generation.

When OXM asked corporate VP of Microsoft Studios Phil Spencer how long the company planned to support the console he replied, ”Years. Last generation was different for us, we moved pretty quickly. This time, you will see us staying committed to the Xbox 360.

“I think it’s a great platform. In certain areas, like trying to switch apps quickly, it shows that it was built in a different era, but in terms of the price point, the content library – I don’t have the stats, but I bet it’s the largest content library ever created in the history of the game space,” he added.

“So it’s a great time even now to get into the Xbox 360 ecosystem. It’s something we’ll remain committed to on the content side as well as the platform itself.”

The Xbox One is set to release in November priced at $499.
