Microsoft has announced it will discontinue production of Inside Xbox in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Xbox Live in EMEA is currently looking at its operating model for the series, which according to Major Nelson “could potentially result in some changes, but we have no news here to share yet.” Xbox Live in Mexico and Japan will continue to produce first-party content for its members via other media outside of the Inside Xbox brand. The firm will be “leveraging third-party news and video content available through a variety of existing and future partners,” such as IGN, and supplementing said content with “select first-party offerings.” Shows like Major’s Minute, Featured Videos and Insider Moves packaged under the Inside Xbox brand will be culled as well.
