Xbox 360 Store Won’t Be Shutting Down

Microsoft will not be shuttering the Xbox 360 Marketplace despite text on an official Xbox support page that indicates a shutting down of the store was in the company’s plans, according to The Verge.

Microsoft announced earlier this week that they would be pulling popular titles such as ‘Jet Set Radio’ and ‘The Orange Box’ from the Xbox 360 Marketplace on February 7th, and that disappointing news was followed up by the appearance of text on an Xbox support page that stated that the company was planning to sunset the Xbox 360 store “over the next year” and pushed players to “purchase any 360 games or related DLC by May 2023”, according to Wario64.

Xbox global product marketing manager Bree Adams has since cleared things up, saying the messaging was a mistake: “This message was posted in error and we can confirm the Xbox 360 marketplace will not close in May 2023,” Adams said in an official statement. “As a reminder, beginning on February 7, 2023, a limited set of games, add-ons, and in-game content will no longer be purchasable in select markets via the Xbox 360 Store.”

While the Marketplace is safe for now, it is worth watching this, and other digital marketplaces, during an ever-shifting time in the tech industry moving forward.
