It had to come sometime but now its official, Microsoft are discontinuing support for the Original Xbox and its games from April 15th 2010. This includes all Xbox games that are playable on the Xbox 360.
It was officially announced on Major Nelsons blog that by taking this decision it will allow Microsoft more flexibility in what they can offer with Xbox Live! My first thoughts are that we could see the end of the 100 friend limit as it is a restriction that has came from the limitations of the original Xbox service.
The major title affected by this decision has to be Halo 2 as its still a popular game.
Why not leave your comments below on how this change could affect Xbox Live and what new features do you now expect to see once this change happens?
