Xbox 360 Marketplace Store Closes in 2024

Microsoft announced it will close the Xbox 360 Marketplace, the online store people use to get games and other sorts of media for the console. We will have until July 24, 2024 to purchase items from it. In addition, the Microsoft Movies & TV app support will end that day, making it unusable.

Microsoft didn’t explain why it will be shutting down the store. It only noted it will come after the system’s 18th anniversary. It also noted this closure means people won’t be able to buy from the console or via a browser.

Microsoft did note that the Xbox 360 Marketplace closing doesn’t mean that Xbox 360 games will be gone, as people can keep playing and downloading after the store shuts down. Both single and multiplayer experiences will be available. People will also still be able to play and access backwards compatible titles on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X, and those Xbox 360 digital copies will be sold on those consoles’ storefronts.

As for Movies & TV items, people will still be to access them. Those will just only be available on an Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows 10 after July 2024. However, everything you own will be there on those platforms’ libraries.

The Xbox 360 Marketplace and Movies & TV app will close on July 24, 2023, though people can still redownload owned items after the store closes that day.
