LOL now you can almost get ONE PS3 game a year


Well, it's an extra $50, either way. PS3 games cost the same as Xbox 360 games, so I don't get the joke...

Its official - I can never own with the Belial again. Thanks for making the shitty mech assault 2 backwards compatible but screwing the real fans, microsoft dropped the ball on this one. BUMMER. WHERE IS THE NEW COUNTERSTRIKE!!!! EHHH

One reason maybe the fact that, certain things like the 100 friends list cap restriction can be removed now. Not having to support Xbox1 may open the doors for new features.

I.e. more shit we don't want/need/use.


Well, simple. Just make it so new features aren't visible on classic Xbox. For example the cap. Make it so X360 players can even use 1.000.000 friends, but original Xbox will still see only 1st 100. Not that hard to code. I call it lazy way out. Especially because they were offering Xbox originals on X360.

The 100 friends limit was hard coded into the original live system according to Microsoft. So I would assume they are redoing the live system to support that. but you would think there would be away to allow them on 360 still?

fail! i loved playing halo 2 and Rainbowsix 3 on live. they could at least release a client on pc that can emulate the xbox live v1 server. so a person can host it for free put up a site and everyone can join. playing it on xlink kai or xbconnect is ok but only halo 2 has voice activated lan =/

that sucks. thers still good number of xbox original titles that are still played. splinter cell is a big one it was just better on the original xbox. at least the multiplayer was. halo 2 on the pc being it rans cross platform with xbox live. mech assault 2 never got a 360 release still very played. conkure live and realoded.

i hate it when they just pull the plug on something. why not give the original servers to the community. let them take it over. but i guess that would be imposable without hacking every game to connect to new ips.

better idea give to community with the original ips. and well make it free with one last system update.

Wrong... I used to play a few games on Kai.... Ghost Recon 2 - Summit Strike, MechAssault 1/2, Links 2004, FarCry and few others... and I was able to use my headset to talk to other people.
