just curious why do you want to play on xbox live on a regular xbox? there prolly won't be that many people playing those games. might be time for an upgrade to a 360.

Yes, if you modify one of your toggle switches, I won't tell you which one though

or you could upgrade to a 360 anyway and take away the doubt, plus they are backwards compatible so you could still play xbox games. Whether or not anyone else will be playing is another story.

That depends on the game's developer/publisher, some games are not supported. Ask me how I know. Luckily they came out with a sequel for the 360 and it was just as badass as the original.

Found this from a couple sources, this one is from Microsoft.



A Letter from Marc Whitten: Discontinuation of Xbox LIVE for Original Xbox Games

Dear Xbox LIVE Members,



On April 15 we will discontinue the Xbox LIVE service for original Xbox consoles and games, including Xbox v1 games playable on Xbox 360 and Xbox Originals. I want to start by saying this isn’t a decision we made lightly, but after careful consideration, it is clear this will provide the greatest benefit to the Xbox LIVE community.



Seven years ago we laid out our vision for the connected console when we launched Xbox LIVE. We believed then that the power of the Internet to connect people would revolutionize living room entertainment. It started with amazing multiplayer games, and we’ve since seen that bet pay off again and again with the launches of Xbox 360, Marketplace, Netflix and powerful social features like Facebook, Twitter and Last.fm. None of this would have been possible without the success of LIVE as a multiplayer gaming network.



There’s no greater example of the power of the Xbox LIVE community than the “Halo” franchise. “Halo 2” has had an amazing run on LIVE, with a dedicated community more than five years after launch and well into the next generation of consoles. It has fundamentally changed the way we play video games. And while it’s difficult to see that run come to an end, the “Halo” franchise continues to act as the benchmark for multiplayer gaming in this generation, with “Halo 3,” “Halo 3: ODST” and soon “Halo: Reach” on Xbox 360.



Your Xbox LIVE community has grown to 23 million strong. And as we look down the road, we’ll continue to evolve the service with features and experiences that harness the full power of Xbox 360. To reach our aspiration, we need to make changes to the service that are incompatible with our original Xbox v1 games. We will contact the Xbox LIVE members directly impacted by this change and if this includes you, I encourage you to check your LIVE messages and associated e-mail account over the coming weeks for more details and opportunities. We view you as a partner in this process.



We’ll share more details soon, but in the meantime I want to assure you that the best is yet to come for Xbox LIVE. I believe we’ll look back on 2010 as a landmark year in gaming and home entertainment, and I couldn’t be more excited about what we have in store with “Project Natal” and LIVE. The LIVE community is the driving force behind everything we do, and it’s because of the community that ground-breaking experiences on Xbox continue to be possible.



See you on LIVE,



Marc Whitten

Also, Halo 2 was the biggest reason why they hadn't discontinued support for original xbox games, and that's the reason why you can't have more than 100 friends on your list. I'm looking forward to the discontinuation at least.

Nothing mentioned about dedicated servers. Dammit. I'm tired of getting kicked from MW2 because of "host migration" problems.

I don't think dedicated servers will ever on their lists. They're cheap bastards.

23 million users x 50ish $/yr.


That would offset the cost of dedicated servers by quite a bit wouldn't it?
