Remember, Xbox 1 Online Dies Today

1 min read


If you’re one of the few holdouts still playing your Original Xbox, or Xbox games on your 360, remember that today will be the very last day you’ll be able to do so online.

The console – which ushered the first successful online system for consoles in 2002 will see it’s online switch turned off later today.

The move is aimed at bolstering the current generation Xbox’s features – and removing the silly 100 friend limit imposed by Xbox compatibility. While there are bound to be some people who’re upset by this move, those of us firmly in the current gen likely don’t care much at all.

Still, if you have fond memories of games like Halo 2, Battlefield 2, Crimson Skies and Star Wars Battlefront 2 it might be time to let the old duke rest in your hands for what may be the very last time.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
