The lights are on
Microsoft has canceled Inside Xbox, a free video show distributed through Xbox Live for members.
Inside Xbox provided news updates, video tutorials, and game coverage streamed to the Xbox 360 dashboard. Xbox Live's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb said it was a decision that was not made easily.
"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," he said on his blog.
"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."
Inside Xbox will no longer be available in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Xbox Live in EMEA is currently looking at its operating model for Inside Xbox. 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, according to Hryb.

Following Sony's lead eh? Its for the best, not many people watch trailers for games on their consoles.
does this mean that its staying in the UK?
oh I am positively devastated!
dang thats been going for awhile now
Not an issue for me, but it kinda sucks there is so little gaming vid info on Live as there is...too much other media: streaming tv etc
Saddening, maybe. But now we can get video reviews from IGN and lots of other stuff. That's the kind of thing I'm more interested in. Plus lots of those shows were pretty much copys of popular Internet series, like Smosh.
I literally had no idea, any such thing was happening lol.
could have something to do with the recently launched ign app
