Microsoft Ends the 10 Year Run of the Xbox 360

Microsoft released a new Xbox 360 system update late last week, the first time it had done so in over two years.

So this is obviously pretty exciting. What new features and changes await those who install the update?

“Minor bug fixes and improvements,” the Xbox 360 operating system versions and system updates page notes. Yes, that’s the “sad trumpet” sound you hear in the background.

And that’s all we know. Well, that and the fact that the last Xbox 360 system update shipped in March 2016, over two years prior. And that the new build number, 2.0.17526.0, is roughly 24 builds higher than that 2016 update.

What you hear now is the sound of snoring.

As a historical footnote, Microsoft ended production of the Xbox 360 in April 2016.
