Microsoft to Shut Xbox 360’s Online Store in 2024

Microsoft said that it would discontinue the online marketplace and store for the Xbox 360 in order to concentrate on its newest latest consoles and subscription service Game Pass.

The Xbox 360 Store and Xbox 360 Marketplace will close on July 29, 2024, and gamers using the outdated platform won't be able to buy and download new games, according to a post on Xbox's website.

Microsoft is, however, allowing users to play with their already purchased Xbox 360 games and older titles that are compatible with the console.

“A lot has changed since the Xbox 360 launched in 2005. Technology has evolved, expectations from players have shifted, and we are focused on making Xbox Series X|S the best place to play now and in the future,” Xbox said.

Following the end of Xbox 360 production in 2016, Microsoft introduced Xbox Game Pass, a subscription gaming service that is accessible on consoles and Windows platforms.

Next to Sony's PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 is recognized as one of the best-selling gaming systems of all time.
