The product chief of Microsoft Phil Spencor makes it clear that the recent Xbox One is one of the prime factor for such a decision by the management. Lest, the difficulties of manufacturing a decade old product is never an easy task.
Though one cannot expect anymore Xbox 360s again from Microsoft, its prevailing inventory of consoles are still for sale with availability depending up on the country. The company promises that customers can continue enjoying Xbox Live services like online multiplayer gaming and parties, Games with Gold, Deals with Gold, and access to apps and so on.

Microsoft also has plans to barter around four thousand Xbox 360 games and accessories through its retail outlets and its own online store to sell off the remaining stocks.
