Many of us here at Windows Phone Central are excited about Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One console, but you might be wondering what happens for those who are sticking with their Xbox 360 unit for a bit longer.
Microsoft’s Xbox Marketing and Strategy Chief, Yusuf Mehdi, stated that the Xbox 360 “is going to go for another three years”. We have reached out to Microsoft for clarification on what “going to go” exactly means, but there is a general assumption that he is referring to support and coverage of the unit.
Mehdi later stated that:
"[Microsoft is] going to continue to invest in the Xbox 360 and the two devices (Xbox One and Xbox 360) can work in concert. It's not like the day we ship the Xbox One your 360 won't work; we'll continue to support it. In fact, we're going to ship over 100 new games on Xbox 360."
When we hear back from Microsoft, we will update our readers with further clarification.
