News Source: MCVUK.com

The death knell has tolled for Xbox 360's predecessor as official release schedules show seven of the UK’s top ten publishers appear to have turned their backs on the format.



According to official release schedules, major third parties like Ubisoft, Sega, Midway, Vivendi and Activision have no planned future Xbox releases.

European president of Sega Mike Hayes told MCV: “Sales on Xbox have fallen dramatically in the last six months. It no longer represents a viable platform for us.”

And general manager for Activision in the UK and Ireland Andrew Brown added to the groundswell of opinion: “Given the current dynamic in the Xbox market in the UK, we have had to manage the availability of our slate in line with consumer demand.”

According to ELSPA statistics, Xbox enjoyed just 2.6 per cent of total software sales last week. This was still 30 per cent better than the week before, however – perhaps an indication that retailers have started slashing software prices in order to shift remaining stock.

Retailers such as Virgin Megastores, HMV and Woolworths have pulled Xbox hardware off the shelves completely and started selling-off marked-down software.

“It's fairly self-evident that demand for particular titles on Xbox is diminishing and becoming less commercially viable,” head of games at HMV Tim Ellis told MCV. “I can understand why some titles may no longer be coming out."

The only big budget games still officially due for the format are: Avatar The Last Airbender from THQ (09/02), Medal Of Honor: Heroes from EA (Q1 2007) and 2K Games’ film tie-in Ghost Rider (Q1 2007).

It was bound to happen one of these days, but only a year after the 360 has been released? Damn.All I can say is lots of people are upgrading their game consoles to 360's these days (while newer gamers are just going straight to them).

Does this mean that the Xbox console itself will stop being manufactued??

Yeah I'm thinking about buying atleast one more spare. More than likely an older one so I can throw another solderless in there.

Hey Hobbs, if you are still looking at putting a wireless adapter in your xbox in your ride, check out this tutorial that I submitted a while ago. I'm sure you know how to hook it all up, but I thought it might give a few pointers Wink

BTW, cheers to that mate. Its just unfortunate that there aren't too many good xbox 1 games anymore. I think the last good one I bought was Splinter Cell - Double Agent.

From what I've seen from video tuts etc, the memory upgrade is a bitch of a task. Your best best would probably be to get a Dream-X there is has the 128mb already in it.

just because the Game Devs are leaving, doesn't mean that Xbox homebrew/modding is going to die anytime soon? Right?
