heh im not saying for them not to drop support. hand the support to the community. release the sdk to the public for the original xbox and let us hack away at it. with no live and no games they are no longer making any profit. sega did it for the dreamcast when it died they relesed the full sdk and even some dev units.
I agree that they should hand support over to the community, but actually releasing the sdk to the public could be a security risk for them, still. I'm not positive, as this is outside of my realm of expertise, but if live in it's current form is still based off it's initial inception, then those kind of tools could still be used to hack XBL, potentially. While Sega did this with the DC, it was after they pulled out of the hardware division, completely.
