According to a recent article on DigiTimes, a manufacturing company by the name of Wistron will discontinue is production of the Xbox 360 in 2008. The reasons for this are cited as declining profits on manufacturing the Xbox 360 and Microsoft's new manufacturing relationship with Celestica. According to TeamXbox, Wistron has been manufacturing Xbox 360s since the system's launch.
Our tipster suggests the discontinuation may have something to do with the Xbox 360 Elite beginning its manufacturing run. We're not manufacturing industry experts, so we'll leave the speculating to our readers.
