    I sort of agree with this I definitely think now that original XBOX game are now backwards compatibly if they have the capability to emplacement XBOX live multiplayer were you can play the game online with your friends like you could back in the day on the original XBOX they should emplacement it.

    why not do that for the xbox one. For games like Crimson Skies, Halo 2, Etc. they wouldn't do it for the Original xbox but they could do it for the xbox one/One S/One X.

    To the people that say they would lose money for the electricity on the server they wouldnt due to the amount of things sold on new consoles as well as consoles themself

    this would be awesome but i just dont see it happening they would be better moving forward rather than backwards. It would cost them way too much to run the servers

    Since the original XBox Live had a hard cap of 50 friends, I have a solution. Set up a "flag" I can stick on friends to "mark" them for that group of 50.

    Microsoft please make it happen I would love to play halo 2 on Xbox live again or any other backwards compatibly game that had Xbox live

    Yeah uh... You and like 10 other people want this. There'd be like 2 people online playing original Xbox as a whole. They'd lose money just paying for electricity for the servers lmao. Never gonna happen.
    Technology goes forward, not backwards.

    i think yall should bring it back plus ppl that didnt get to exsprerince the old xbox live this would be a new exsperince and old for old players i think this would solve old gamers that love the old games that would love to play online again

    While lot of people are saying it would be impossible, I have to disagree. The original Xbox's live service was mainly based off of P2P networking which means it would use other Xbox' s as servers. That means that they wouldn't have to set up a huge amount of servers or anything. Plus the Xbox 360 is proof that they could do it because all the cod, halo, gears, and like 90% of all other online games on the 360 use P2P. Pretty much what I'm saying is that there's probably like an on and off switch for the original Xbox live in the Microsoft offices.

    The sever netcode and just gamecode in general prolly wouldnt work in todays xbl framework...thats why they have backwards combatibility...

    Xbox is always moving forward. While they have started making original Xbox games backward compatible for us, I don't see old game servers dusted off and started up.
