    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.

    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.

    I def would like to see Microsoft bring back the original Xbox Live. Especially now that they are bringing forth original Xbox games to the Xbox one. It would be great connecting the original to the network with the other generations of the console.

    I don't think there will be a serious effort to open servers for old consoles. It will be better to ask for old games to become part of the bc list

    The number of players on Original Live at any time point would be ridiculously low compared with 360/One, but I really think MS should do an effort and bring back online the old Live network, and the reason is purely "conservationist": MS created the modern online gaming in consoles, and as a tribute to their own work, and to preserve that tribute for future generations (in the same way as a museum preserve all kind of artifacts) they should bring it back. Even if it is a single modern server virtualizing their old servers network, but they should keep it running on its basics.

    Something as great as Xbox Live deserves a living reminder of its own origins

    I agree, just got an original xbox again and i'd love to have a blast on "ghost recon 2" or the original "forza"online.
    I have many friends who'd also jump back on the original xbox for a few evenings here and there, retro gaming is on the rise and being able to play online again would just be so awesome.
