MICROSOFT is pulling the plug on many classic games available through its Xbox Live Gold subscription service.
The tech giant has decided to stop adding Xbox 360 titles to the popular platform.
Free games are included each month.
All old Xbox 360 games can be played on the latest Xbox Series X/S consoles as well as the previous Xbox One.
But as of October, those for the Xbox 360 will no longer be available.
In an email to disappointed gamers, the company said it had “reached the limit of our ability to catalog Xbox 360 games.”
Any titles already downloaded will not be affected as long as you have them.
Players have until October 1st to download more via the service, so get them now before they’re gone.
An email from Microsoft to customers states: “Starting October 1, 2022, the monthly games made available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members through Games with Gold will not be Xbox 360 titles contain more.
“We’ve reached the limit of our ability to catalog Xbox 360 games; However, Games with Gold will continue to feature exciting Xbox One titles and exclusive discounts each month.
“This will not affect Xbox 360 games that you downloaded before October 2022.
“Any Xbox 360 titles redeemed through Games with Gold before this point can be kept on your Xbox account, regardless of whether you continue your subscription.
“Thank you for being a loyal member.”
Last year it was rumored that Xbox Live Gold might be shut down.
