Eurogamer: Microsoft should by now have officially discontinued Xbox Live support for original Xbox consoles and games.
Still playing here.
same here i just played few hours ago
now its time for 360
microsoft is famous abandoning their products, i expected this.
I completely agree not in a fanboy stance but just look at the ps2 support sony gave. There is still new releases on ps2 10 years later
Well of course theyre gonna support a console thats sold nearly 150,000 units. it would be stupid to stop. And im pretty sure that the only reason online will work for PS2 is because it didnt have a unified system, Each developer input theyre own servers
I will miss you and the long nights spent playing Rainboy Six 3 and Splinter Cell: CT co-op
One to go!!! 8P 8)
This is why i prefer my PC and dedicated servers.
Dedicated servers get shut down too, you won't find very many games from 7 or 8 years ago that had dedicated servers that still do (official ones, not fan made).
This story sure has hit the front page quite a few times.
lol looks like MS is in the business of removing features as well, there ya go bots, not long before they do the same to x360, it will be shoved into a coffin and they wil nail it tight to make way for their next xbox.
People had to pay fees on the first Xbox to play online, right? So if they discontinue the service, will it reduce the cost of the fee for those who play online for the Xbox 360? Or am I missing something here?
the fee you pay includes online play for both platforms. eliminating one does not mean the cost is reduced. ms could decide to rework it into a tiered system but that is their call.
