The Xbox One launches on November 22 in multiple countries, but how long will Microsoft support its current generation console for? Well, Xbox CMO Yusuf Medhi said during the Citi Global Technology Conference that Microsoft is shipping more games than it ever has to the Xbox 360.




Not only that, but the Xbox Live subscription service is seeing continuous growth. Medhi called the Xbox 360 "incredibly profitable" as it reaches its last legs, before it's replaced with the next-gen Xbox One. Medhi has said within the next three years of its life, the Xbox 360 will see over 100 more games shipped for the console.


He said: "If you look at 360 that platform lasted for seven to eight years and it's going to go for another three years. It's incredibly profitable now in the tail. Some of these things take some time in the launch year in which you invest, and then they they play out over time."
