Xbox has informed gamers that the Xbox 360 Store is closing and with it its exclusive games.

Over 200 digital-only Xbox 360 games have been identified that will no longer be available after the shutdown.

However, many of these will still be available via Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S backwards compatibility.

Despite this, some games will disappear from Xbox for good, including some highly rated games.

Some of these are available on other platforms or older consoles, but can also be hard to come by on the used market.

Space Channel 5: Part 2 Since there was never a physical version in the west, fans had to buy the game digitally.

After July it will still be available on Steam where it’s rated 9/10 and is a great catch for anyone interested in rhythm games.

Popular indie platformer dust power will no longer be available on Xbox and also some older games from popular series will disappear.

Street Fighter, YuGiOh!, Batman, Worms, and South Park are popular IPs losing games after the shutdown.

Here are the top 10 games to buy before the Xbox 360 shuts down.

  • YuGiOh! Millennium Duels
  • South Park Tenorman’s Revenge
