In the last 10 years, Xbox LIVE has transformed in so many amazing ways, and as a community we’ve experienced so much together. I’ve personally witnessed many changes that have helped Xbox LIVE improve and together with our members we’ve created a community we all value and rely on.
At Xbox, we are focused on making entertainment and gaming more amazing, and we must continue to invest our resources and talents wisely. Consequently, we’ve decided to discontinue production of Inside Xbox in the United States, and as a result this content will also no longer be available in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. 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.
We want to express our sincere appreciation to all of our viewers and fans of Inside Xbox, and remain committed to providing our members with access to high-quality news and information via the console, social media channels and Xbox.com. We will be leveraging third-party news and video content available through a variety of existing and future partners, and supplementing this content with select first-party offerings. However, day-to-day news content and weekly programming currently offered though Inside Xbox will cease production in the United States. This includes shows like Major’s Minute, Featured Videos and Insider Moves packaged under the Inside Xbox brand.
This decision was not made lightly. Our teams working on Inside Xbox have done a great job connecting with our members and delivering high-quality, informative game news and tips. We thank them all for their contributions to the Xbox LIVE community and wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
This means that you won't be seeing Larry Hyrb's gray hair and crazy dress shirts on your Xbox anymore.
That Windows Phone apps show with the blonde dyke lady spotlighting shitty games?
Gone. Fucking gone.
The awkward and stilted show with those two British guys (one with a terrible haircut) on a couch answering questions and being unfunny?
It's all gone...At least for people in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. I'm not sure what kind of content that's produced in Mexico/Japan, but whatever is, it won't be under the thriving Inside Xbox brand anymore. (I BET THAT STUFF IS
SHIT GREAT) Seems like the UK stuff will also go away soon.

There is an IGN app on the marketplace, so I guess further integration and more apps like that are coming?
Is a GB app now possible? How awesome would that be?
I feel like I'm missing something here or that I'm being stupid, but I'm going to turn this into a thread anyway and then eat left over pizza.
