Next-gen consoles are longer next-gen, with the likes of the PS4 and Xbox One proving as ubiquitous in households as their predecessors these days. That said, those who still own an Xbox 360 are still being shown a bit of love by Microsoft, with the company rolling out its first update for the gaming device in nearly two years.

The update is by no means a gamechanger, with it only being rolled out to address a handful of bugs on the 360 console. The previous update for the device was issued at the end of March 2016, which came a month before Microsoft officially announced that it would no longer be making the console.

While Microsoft is still supporting the 360 as far as software updates are concerned, when it comes to gaming titles, Xbox Live and the community Marketplace, there is now very little on offer for this console. As such, those who have not done so already will need to make the jump to the Xbox One or One S if they're aiming to play the latest games. That said, we'd advise keeping hold of the Xbox 360 as it could be a collector's item 10 years down the line.
