Meh. Most XBL players play on 360 anyway, probably less than 1% right now play on the Xbox 1.
Damn, i was about to post this.
You know, it would be nice if Microsoft did a Sega and allowed their xbox fans to make their own servers for xbox live via an emulator or something.
But alas, Moneysoft wouldn't do anthing nice for their customers unless they profited from it.
(Its a shame, as I recently got a load of old xbox games that would've been cool to play online, (if I could find the players!! XD))
Fortunately a lot of old xbox games had local multiplayer, so its not so huge a deal.
But when the 360 servers close down, it will be a much bigger shame, as hardly any games these days have local multiplayer.
I mean, Left 4 Dead 2, is designed so that most of the game is online, without Live, you could only play offline campaign with the lame bots, and 2 player co-op.
For this game you can use LAN, but again, hardly any 360 games have LAN support neither.
This could leave a void.
(But Micr$soft will likely have backwards compatibility with the 360 on its next console, (but I reckon ol' xbox will not, (as its only software emulation)).
(Also anyone know how to cancel an old xbox live account, I made one in order to get Phantasy Star Online to work on my old xbox, (as it needs one to play it offline), and now I keep getting automated messages on my email saying their gonna charge me soon, (but the microsoft website doesn't see the card I used as a payment choice)
(Again its Microsofts fault on this part, as they didn't update their xbox emulator to support this game...))
Well, I guess I'm kinda glad I took up Halo 2 on PC.
Read this earlier on another news site. I'm surprised Microsoft kept support for as long as they did. There can't be that many xbox users remaining who use live. So the costs of running and maintaining those servers may out weigh what they take in revenue.
So... they're cutting off the Original Xbox's live or the backwards comparability in general?
I would assume it's just the Live aspect of the original xbox games. Not backwards compatibility totally. That's just a poor idea if that's the direction they're going lol.
They're making free monies off of the original Xbox games.
all online servers are being shut down for xbox 1 games, thats all
but there is a ton of people pissed
The simple soultion... buy games for your computer and you have dedicated servers
not to mention you don't need a XBL membership
They should even be lucky Microsoft didn,t pull the plug sooner.
the article does mention that this will have an impact on all original xbox games, including those downloaded from the online shop thing..they are cancelling any support for xbox 1 online stuff through live as a whole.
Go suck a penis.
The GIRLFRIEND CHANCE/GAMES ratio.
I agree, I certainly hope the backwards compatibility will still be available. I know some die hard halo fans are going to be disappointed. These games will lose their appeal once online support is dropped. This is sad news. The problem is games from past generations get lost once the company haults support. It's like nintendo, some games can now be enjoyed thanks to VC but not all. I think about Goldeneye in particular.
Shit, what about the Xbox Originals Games on Demand? I bought Psychonauts and haven't downloaded it yet because of my internet cap. If all it's effecting is Original XBL, then I'm fine with that. How many people still play original XBL?
This is only for playing original Xbox games online. I'm pretty sure you can still download Xbox Originals and play them, just without online.
how can microsoft do tht? i mean they have the money to maintain the servers unless the cost is greater than the profit which is even not too likely... its still a possibility tht the newer games are hogging the server resources
Bungie has to make a Halo compilation for Xbox 360. One that has compatibility with the "new" Xbox Live. One that has Halo 1 with Xbox Live.
No Live anymore for xbox1 blah blah xbconnect and xlink kai are a just as good
and all the good games are system link so this is not a big factor......
