Xbox chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi has revealed that the Xbox 360 will receive three more years of support and that over 100 games are planned for release on the system.
Speaking at the Citi Global Technology Conference, Mehdi confirmed that the current-gen console will be phased out in 2016, and that both Xbox 360 and Xbox One can co-exist happily. “We’re going to continue to invest in Xbox 360, and the two devices can work in concert. So it’s not like the day we ship Xbox One your 360 won’t work. We’ll continue to support it,” he said.
At the conference Mehdi also confirmed that the Xbox One had received a CPU Boost to 1.75 GHz.
