Microsoft will stop providing free Xbox 360 games through Games with Gold as of October 2022. The company informed Xbox Live Gold subscribers in the US, Canada, and other countries of the change via email. The letter from the firm reads, “We have reached the limit of our ability to deliver Xbox 360 games to the catalog.” But each month, Games with Gold will still provide thrilling Xbox One games and special discounts.
In addition, regardless of whether they continue to pay for Xbox Live Gold, Xbox customers can redownload any 360 games they have purchased through Games with Gold, according to the email.
The move won't affect any other Xbox Live Gold perks, a Microsoft representative told Engadget. We always consider ways to improve the Xbox experience in light of community interaction, customer input, and changing business priorities. Due to license and technical restrictions, we are no longer able to add new games to the library from the past. We'll keep concentrating on offering Xbox One games through the Games with Gold initiative.

The Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition consoles will no longer be produced and marketed globally, according to the platform owner, which announced this in July 2020. However, Xbox One S would still be produced and distributed worldwide.
But later that year, Microsoft also discontinued making Xbox One S consoles, which coincided with the introduction of the Xbox Series X/S.
According to Cindy Walker, senior director of Xbox console product marketing, “we ended manufacture for all Xbox One consoles by the end of 2020 to focus on the production of Xbox Series X / S.”
Microsoft's statement is in line with a source that claims Sony has increased PS4 manufacturing since PS5 components are still in short supply, prompting Sony to extend PS4 production.
Bloomberg reports that Sony had intended to stop making PS4 consoles last year, but has now informed assembly partners that it will keep producing them until 2022.
According to reports, the choice will result in the manufacturing of about one million PS4 units this year and relieve some of the pressure on PS5 production, which calls for more sophisticated CPUs.
According to Bloomberg's sources, Sony will be able to negotiate better terms with its manufacturing partners as a result of increasing production.
Microsoft has had trouble keeping up with demand for Xbox Series X even though Xbox Series S is generally accessible for purchase.

However, according to the manufacturer, Xbox Series X/S systems continue to sell more quickly than any Microsoft device from a previous generation.
Phil Spencer, head of gaming at Microsoft, claimed in an interview with the New York Times that the ongoing Xbox shortages were not really due to fewer consoles being built than in previous generations. Instead, he asserted, a rise in demand following the start of the Covid-19 outbreak is to blame for the current state of scarcity.
“If you try to go buy a new Xbox or PlayStation in the market right now, you'll discover that they're incredibly difficult to find. And it's not because the supply is at its lowest point ever. The supply is actually at its highest level ever. For all of us, it's because demand outpaces supply.
“At this point, we've sold more Xboxes from the Xbox Series X and S generation than we ever did from a previous generation. In order to meet that demand, it is our responsibility to increase supply.
