Microsoft To Delist These Games From the Xbox 360 Store Next Week

Xbox 360 is a video game and entertainment system that is home to video games, an on-demand library of movies and TV shows connected to the television. The Xbox 360 blends its content with the largest online social network of 20 million members on Xbox Live to create an entertainment experience that can be shared at home or across the globe.

Earlier today Microsoft announced the upcoming removal of 46 Xbox 360 games and their associated DLC from the US Xbox 360 store starting on February 7, 2023.

Once the games are delisted, they will no longer be available for purchase. Anyone who purchases the games before they are removed will not lose access to their purchases. Delisted games can still be downloaded and played by their owners.

Because some of these titles are available for purchase on the current Xbox storefront, we asked Microsoft for clarification on the delisting. A Microsoft spokesperson clarified that the delisting ONLY applies to the Xbox 360 storefront and will not impact games that are currently available to buy on the Xbox One and Xbox Series storefront.

“Beginning on February 7, 2023, a limited set of games, add-ons, and in-game content will no longer be purchasable in select markets via the Xbox 360 Store. These titles will no longer be purchasable on the Xbox 360 Store only, and titles that are available to be purchased on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S Stores will remain purchasable. You will still be able to play discs or previously downloaded games on your Xbox 360 and modern consoles if they are backwards compatible titles. For more information on the games impacted in your region, visit here,“ said a Microsoft spokesperson.

Of the 46 Xbox 360 games being removed from the Xbox 360 store:

  • 15 are available in the Xbox One and Xbox Series store and will remain purchasable
  • 44 are backwards compatible with the Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles
  • 2 (Eets: Chowdown and The Raven) games are only playable on the Xbox 360

The full list of US games, along with links to their store listings, are below. Games with “Xbox One” store links are games that are available to purchase in the Xbox One and Xbox Series store.
