Xbox Live director of programming Larry 'Major Nelson' Hryb said of the system update on Monday:
(1/2) An #Xbox360 update hits as early as tomorrow, mostly back end stuff— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) April 1, 2014
(2/2) Start an #XboxVideo rental on Xbox 360 & pick it up on another platform. That's one of the only new features.— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) April 1, 2014
Despite Microsoft switching focus to Xbox One in the run-up to the console's November 2013 release, Xbox chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi said last September that the company will continue to support Xbox 360 for years to come.
"If you look at Xbox 360 that platform [has] lasted for seven to eight years and it's going to go for another three years," he said. "We are going to continue to invest in Xbox 360 and the two devices can work in concert. In fact, we are going to ship over 100 new games on Xbox 360, so you will still be able to play your games, just not on the same exact box."
The next high-profile Xbox 360 game is Titanfall, which was originally scheduled to launch in March alongside Xbox One and PC versions. Following two delays, the Xbox 360 Titanfall release date has now been confirmed as April 8 in North America and April 11 in Europe.
