It hasn't really died off at all, it's still there up on xbins, Devs and all prob just out of ideas of what else to make! Quite a boatload of apps n much more out there! It will always be there as long as the common place keeps on goin and goin
There are a lot of things that XBox owners want ported, but there are almost no one left to port the things, as most of the coders have left the XBox scene. We really want a flash player, a PDF viewer, an updated port of Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior (both ports are nearly perfect, but they NEED the ability for each port to save to different saves depending on which user mod is loaded, as the current ports save to the same few save slots regardless of which user mods you might have loaded), plus there are lots of freeware open source games that would be great on the XBox, such as the Marathon games and Open Arena.
On the plus side, Alien vs. Predator is being ported, and is so far very nice indeed, plus work is progressing on some emulators, including Surreal 64, but this is going slowly (fair enough, the programmers have real life to attend to). But it might be possible for other N64 emulators, or at least forks of current implementations to be ported across and give better performance and/or compatibility.
Unfortunately it requires real skill to port a game, and for most of us it's beyond our capabilities.
If ya'll want to make something go for it, dont just sit around and fart around and wishy wishy for something to be "made" JUST DO IT
If we could then we would. Sadly, few of us can.
