As for BC: That's support for the Xbox One, not for the original Xbox. It's not like I can use my old games with that service, can I? No, it's just a bunch of 360 games, who knows if and when there will bei Original Xbox Games. On top of that, my point still stands that they let their console die just three years after release in europe! I mean, come on, three years! That's pretty damn short for a console, especially considering it did cost friggin 479 € at release.
And those are only two things, there's also Mira, Kin, Windows ME, Windows XP 64 Bit (the support was really bad for that one) and other things. Microsoft isn't throwing money away for products that don't sell. No one in their right mind would do that. Not even the oh so friendly folks at Nintendo.
Compared to how my prized possession, Clie, back in the day. Yes, that is brilliant support 😌. I did so much research in finding the perfect pocket computer. Then one week later, they announce that they will stop supporting Clie in one month. I prayed to the Gods, why did they let this happen to such a wonderful device. So much better than Palm's crap. So I went and got Windows Mobile eventually to pay back Palm for having a hand in Clie's demise. I still loved my Sony product, despite its creators throwing it to the curb like it was a bastard child. Made many perv spy videos with random hotties.
3 years vs 1 month... M$ takes it! 😆
BTW , go on your 360 and accept my friend request from 6 months ago. Its still pending. 😒
