If you wanted concrete proof that Microsoft was still committed to the Xbox 360, Major Nelson's announcement this week should have been the proof you were looking for. The 360 is here to stay, for at least the next handful of years, and the new Preview Program for the 360 should eliminate any doubt that the console would be phased out.
From Major Nelson's blog,
In our upcoming release will be addressing common customer issues including improving the ability to troubleshoot common network issues from the 360 and adding a Network Connectivity test including Download and Upload speed tests.
There will be even more changes coming later this year - so sign up to be a part of the Xbox 360 Preview Program.
I've already received my invite and have accepted the new terms, but it doesn't appear that any updates have been pushed yet. Rumors are that we'll see a Windows 10-style skin in the coming months, along with some enhancements towards the media side of the console. Of course, all of that could change and we could see new game additions. At this point, all we know is that Microsoft is still committed to the Xbox 360 and it's here to stay for a while. It's been my favorite go-to media device in the bedroom and spare room, with the Xbox One taking its throne as my living room device.
