Xbox to cancel LIVE services as of April 15th 2010 (possibly to make more room for 360 and Natal?)

As of April 15th the original Xbox LIVE services will be discontinued.  Sorry die hard Xbox fans.  This also includes games for the original that are playable on the Xbox 360 for updates.  Microsoft’s rep Larry Hryb said, “While I can’t comment on the specifics, this change will allow us to continue evolving the LIVE service with new features and experiences that fully harness the power of Xbox 360 and the Xbox LIVE community.  We did not make this decision lightly, but after careful consideration and review we realize that this decision will allow us unprecedented flexibility for future features.”  Long live advancement (sorry non-upgraders)

Have your say
