This afternoon, Microsoft announced the end of production for all of the content under its Inside Xbox label. Short programs that were available for streaming on the Xbox 360 console, including Major’s Minute, Featured Videos, Insider Moves, and Xbox 101, will no longer be producing new episodes.
Larry Hryb, the host of Major’s Minute (also known as Major Nelson,) has confirmed that he will continue his position at the company as the director of programming for Xbox LIVE. Specific reasons for the cancellations were not given, though Microsoft has publicly wished the best for the former employees of each show.
Mexico and Japan will continue to get first-party video content produced by companies outside of Microsoft, While North America, Australia, and New Zealand will not. Microsoft representatives did mention that they are looking into new operating models for Inside Xbox, which could “result in some changes.”
