Microsoft has announced that almost 50 games will no longer be available through the Xbox 360 store starting February 7, 2023. Anyone owning an Xbox 360 console won’t be able to purchase these titles from the store anymore after the deadline.

If there is any classic title you really want to be playable on the Xbox 360, buying them now is the safest course of action. You’ll still be able to download games from the store even after this date. Many of these titles are still available to play anyways thanks to the backward compatibility of the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, so if you have one of these newer consoles you won’t have all too much to worry about.
