Microsoft Releases New Update for Xbox 360 Consoles
 

 
Microsoft continues to support the 15-year-old Xbox 360, rolling out a new server update after players reported a bug with one of its systems.

The Xbox 360 has a special place in the hearts of many gamers. Despite some technical issues, it boasted a respectable first-party lineup and sold over 85 million units worldwide. However, time marches on, and most gamers probably expected Microsoft was done with the console after officially discontinuing it in 2016.

However, that is not entirely the case, as the Xbox 360 evidently still receives official support. Microsoft just announced a new patch in response to bug reports from a small number of players.

Xboxís Eden Marie recently tweeted out the announcement of a new service fix for the Xbox 360. According to the tweet, two Xbox 360 players reported that Pins, the system for players' favorited games, and apps, were no longer working on the console. Microsoft likely could have ignored this issue without much pushback but instead rolled out a quick fix for the problem. Marie announced the new patch at 11:19 last night and expects the problem to be resolved within 24 hours. However, she encouraged Xbox 360 players to contact her via Twitter if they encountered any further issues.

The glitch appears to have been a server-side issue instead of one with the Xbox 360ís operating system. This makes the patch much easier to roll out, explaining how Microsoft addressed the problem so soon after players reported it. Still, itís surprising that Microsoft continues to support the 15-year-old console, especially considering it was after just two bug reports. While Microsoft is far from the perfect company, its customer service did a good job this time.

The Xbox 360 was not the most successful console in the seventh generation. It came in third behind the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3, which outsold the Xbox 360 by over 17 million and over 3 million units, respectively. Part of that may be due to the consoleís reputation for unreliability. While later versions had fewer issues, technical problems like the 360ís infamous Red Ring of death hurt early perceptions of the console.

Still, the 360 is home to many great games. These include successful first-party exclusives like Halo 3 and Gears of War. Not to mention the third-party hits like Mass Effect, Skyrim, Fallout: New Vegas, and Left 4 Dead. A lot of the Xbox 360ís library is backward compatible with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, and it obviously isnít getting any new games. Still, it seems that some players havenít moved on from the 15-year-old console. Fortunately, the latest path shows that Microsoft hasnít forgotten about them.

Now that's pro-consumer. Updating old systems instead of shutting down servers and stores.
