    About 6 months ago I got an original XBox (in a clearance sale, brand new with Halo 2, PGR2, Forza & Fable for £50). :)

    Anyway, can anyone tell me if XBox Live still works on the original XBox? I've read on some sites that it's been closed down but the MS site suggests otherwise. :confused:

    If it is still up & running, does anyone think it's even worth it for the old XBox? I'm not a serious gamer but I would like to play Halo 2 & PGR 2 online.

    Cheers

    It will work, friends of mine who are still without 360s are playing games all the time.

    Is it worth it? Depends. There are still a lot of Halo 2 players, though of those gamers most of the people on my list have moved to Halo 3. Never played PGR, Forza or Fable, so I don't know if they're Xbox Live-capable, but who knows?

    At any rate, if you'd like, you can get a 3-month card or something, and if you don't like it after three months, chuck the account and it's all good.

    Thanks Mackilroy, I'll see if I can find a cheap 3m card. In the last 6 months I've collected a whole load of Live games (as old XBox games at only a fiver on eBay). :)
