Xbox will remove nearly 50 games from the 360 store
XBOX has announced that nearly 50 games will be removed from the 360 store as of this month.
From February 7, Xbox 360 owners will no longer be able to purchase these games via their console.
Those who purchase the games over the next few days will be able to download them to their console at a later date.
However, if you miss the deadline, there will be no way to purchase these games for your 360 in the future.
If you have previously purchased the titles, you will also be able to download them later. You will also be able to play physical copies.
Many of the games are available via backwards compatibility for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S owners.
These versions will still be available for purchase for the foreseeable future.
It is likely that Xbox is slowly shutting down the 360 store, as it hopes that players will upgrade to its more modern consoles.
While the store isn’t being shut down yet, the removal of certain games is usually the beginning of the end for console stores.
Among the games being removed are a number of games from popular series.
