Your Xbox Live Dashboard will be losing its Inside Xbox programme in the United States, as Microsoft states that they wish to "continue to invest our resources and talents wisely". That means Inside Xbox will no longer be available in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
"At Xbox, we are focused on making entertainment and gaming more amazing, and we must continue to invest our resources and talents wisely," writes Major Nelson on his blog. "Xbox LIVE in EMEA is currently looking at its operating model for Inside Xbox. This 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."
Microsoft says that it's remaining "committed to providing our members with access to high-quality news and information via the console, social media channels and Xbox.com", with third-party news and video alongside "select first-party offerings". None of which will be offered through Inside Xbox any longer in the aforementioned territories.
