Microsoft had tried to shutdown the original Xbox Live servers, but a couple of Halo 2 stalwarts had refused to log off! I guess Microsoft couldn’t turn the servers off, or wouldn’t, while people were still connected? No matter: the last Halo 2 Xbox Live player has signed off. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
Yes, APACHE N4SIR, the last player to still be logged into Halo 2 on Xbox Live signed off a few hours ago, putting an end to the orignial incarnation of Xbox Live. The ironic thing is, I probably played more Xbox Live with the Xbox1 than I do now with my 360. Go figure!
Much of that time was spent with Halo 2. The game came out when I was as freshman in college, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that my tiny dorm room was filled with folks playing that damn game for hours at a time.
No matter—turn the lights out, will you?
