Xbox players, pay attention! This is a major announcement that will impact millions of gamers around the world. Starting in July of next year, hundreds of games will no longer be available for purchase.
Xbox 360 Store Closing Down
The Xbox 360's days are numbered. Xbox has revealed that the Xbox 360 store will be shutting down, taking its exclusive games with it.
Over 200 Games will no longer be purchasable
A total of over 200 digital-only Xbox 360 games will be affected by this closure. They will no longer be available for purchase once the shutdown takes place.
While many of these games will still be accessible through backwards compatibility on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S, some will disappear from Xbox altogether.
Exclusive Games Disappearing
Unfortunately, even some highly-rated games will be gone for good. Although a few of them are available on other platforms or legacy consoles, getting them second-hand can be a challenge.
For example, Space Channel 5: Part 2, a rhythm game that received rave reviews, was never released physically in the West. Fans had to purchase it digitally but after the closure, it can still be found on Steam, where it has an impressive 9/10 rating.
Popular IPs Affected
It's not just lesser-known titles that are disappearing. Popular series like Street Fighter, YuGiOh!, Batman, Worms, and South Park will also be losing games after the closure.
