This is it. Cue The Doors record
, because next Thursday, April 15th, Microsoft
will be turning out the lights on the servers
that run original Xbox games on Xbox Live, which means that this weekend will be the last non-workdays you've got to play Star Wars: Battlefront 2
, Crimson Skies
, or Halo 2
online. If it's any consolation, remember that the reason for the shutdown is that older hardware on the service is keeping Microsoft from being able to update things like the friends list limit
, so in this case, change should bring some welcome progress.
But as for us, we'll be vegging out all day on Sunday playing Conker: Live and Reloaded
. We just called Aunt Emma to tell her this weekend's visit will have to wait -- something more important has come up.
