Microsoft discontinues the Xbox 360

Microsoft logoMicrosoft Xbox 360 gaming console units will no longer be produced, bringing an end to the 16-years old gaming machine that sold more that 80 million units.

Microsoft said in a blog post it would continue to sell existing inventory of the consoles, and that it would continue to provide customer support.

Xbox 360 also introduced Microsoft's Kinect motion-sensing game device. It was the company's primary gaming console, until it launched the Xbox One in 2013.

The company's Xbox Live network, which allows online multi-player gaming, will continue to be available for the Xbox 360.

"While we've had an amazing run, the realities of manufacturing a product over a decade old are starting to creep up on us," said Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft's Xbox division.

However, many of the Xbox 360 games will "stay alive", as users can play many of them them on the Xbox One console.
