    Well, There goes 360 number 3....RROD etc, and that's me finished with the 360, was a blast but no more, thanks Microsoft.

    So bit skint at mo, gonna get a PS3 later this year, however...a workmate has given me his old original xbox plus games to see me through, bless him, gonna get it online as i still have an live account.

    Is anyone still online with the original xbox? I've heard Halo2 is still up and running, are there any other online games still busy?

    Bit of long shot, but if anyone has any info would like to hear thanx very much xx

    Was it not in warranty?

    But not online, for obvious reasons.

    As foreverafternothing said; warranty? If the machine was bought within / had any encounter with an MS repair centre within the last three years you're entitled to a free repair / motherboard replacement.

    As for your thread subject, yes - I do. And only some of the time is to get people on my friendslist to notice I'm playing something non-360 BC and have them searching for an update! :D

    Picked up Jedi Academy recently and to my utter amazement there were people still playing the MP on that O_o

    I'm worried I'll break my live account if I try to move it back to the original Xbox.

    Do you use the same account on both consoles, Retroid?

    I'd like to keep playing on Live in my bedroom - there are a few original games I love:

    Outrun
    Burnout 3
    SF Anniversary collection (includes SFIII: 3rd Strike)
    Marvel Vs Capcom
    Etc...

    Your live account works on all consoles. It just lacks the 360 features on the original xbox.

    Yup, I use the same profile. I migrated it across from my original Xbox when I picked up the 360, I remember it saying it'll still work fine but I wouldn't be able to fiddle with the payment settings etc. on the original Xbox anymore. Which I didn't care about :)

    Thanks so far...got it up n running, the 360 has been fixed before by a friend so no warranty, remember this is my third 360, loved it but this is too much. I'm quite happy waiting a bit and getting PS3, maybe when GT comes along.....

    Anyway the original still looks ok, got it online....no- one playing Rallisport Challenge 2 online????? Madness, i say!!

    Seems a shame that everyones moved on..remember Ghost Recon 2, Unreal Championship 1 & 2, Far Cry? Ahh well....Off to get a copy of Halo2.

    Anyone fancy original xbox live gaming.....post here!!

    Well.....Halo 2 still busy, still plays great...Saw a couple of people on PGR2 as well.

    The real suprise is Rainbow6 3 and Black Arrow...seems still very popular, bit ropey looking mind!

    Still can't believe no- one plays Rallisport2...anyone here got it?

    Oh yes.. download content is still up.

    Will report back on Unreal Champ 1 and 2 soon..

    I bought Stars Wars Battlefront II for Xbox and went on live with it, there was DLC and it had a price. But I thought surely it must be free now. To my suprise it actually charged me the 3.00 or whatever for the content.

    So yes Xbox is still alive and well, and DLC is out there and they will charge you if it's chargable.

    It is a real shame many good games never supported Co-op over Xbox Live in the last generation, because I can think of loads of games that could still be fun as current Xbox 360 games (i.e. Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance).
