Microsoft to support Xbox One for over ten years

Speaking at the Eurogamer Expo not only did Phil Harrison say that use of the Xbox One and its cloud capabilities could potentially improve graphics on the console, but that Microsoft plans to support its next-generation gaming device for more than ten years.

Harrison said that the launch of the console on November 22 will commence a “more than 10-year journey” for the Xbox One and that it will be supported down the road via a range of features and services, including the much-discussed cloud.

For us, it’s not just about the launch date. It is about the start of the journey where the console will be improved and will be adapted and changed.

While ten years might sound a lot, you have to remember that the Xbox 360 will turn eight years old in November this year (yes, really!) and Microsoft has said they plan to support that console for another three years… Sure beats upgrading your cell phone every six months!
