Xbox LIVE Support for the Original Xbox Ended
Itís now official, Microsoft has pulled the plug on the original Xbox. Xbox LIVE support for first-generation Xbox consoles was cut yesterday, April 15th, 2010, as previously announced by the Redmond company. The move from Microsoft is also synonymous with locking a variety of older titles out of Xbox LIVE, including Halo 2, one of the most popular games for the console.
ď[On April 15] weíll be turning off the ability for original Xboxes to connect to Xbox LIVE. Itís the end of an era, and thereís definitely an odd vibe in the air at Xbox HQ right now. Re-Volt, Ghost Recon, MechAssault, RTCW, Halo 2 and more Ė weíll miss you,Ē a member of the Xbox Live Operations team revealed.

This is more or less the same idea as ending support for XP.
The console in and of itself is actually a great way to game if you don't want to fork out for a computer (assuming you buy top of the line) and have an easy setup.
I still favour computer (I got a cheap 360 from a friend) and I do like some games on the XBox (rockband, racing games).
Consoles will never (and should never) do MMOs though...
