Xbox Dies at the Age of Five

March 12, 2007

A cursory glance at the “Coming Soon” page in the Xbox section of any major retailer’s website will reveal what many of you already know. The original Xbox is officially dead, having seen the release of Major League Baseball 2K7 late last week. There are no current plans to release more titles for the console, and Microsoft has also announced plans to scale back the backwards compatibility effort by the end of this year.
