Update 03/02/2023 at 3:21pm ET: Microsoft says it will not shut down the Xbox 360 Marketplace, despite its support page stating the opposite earlier this week. According to Xbox’s global product marketing manager Bree Adams, in a statement given to The Verge, “[The] message was posted in error and we can confirm the Xbox 360 marketplace will not close in May 2023.”

The support page now reads “A number of game titles and associated add-ons will be removed from the Xbox 360 Marketplace in a select set of regions per title. These removals will start on February 7, 2023.”

Original story is below:

Xbox has announced that a few dozen Xbox 360 games will be delisted from the Xbox 360 Marketplace on February 7th.

As spotted by Wario64, Xbox has quietly updated its support page to list a variety of 360 games that will be removed from the console’s digital storefront. Thankfully, Xbox confirmed with The Verge that any of these games that are playable on Xbox One and Series X/S via backwards compatibility will remain available. Further, 360 players who purchase any of these games before February 7th can continue playing and even re-download them past this date.
