Xbox to cancel LIVE services as of April 15th 2010 (possibly to make more room for 360 and Natal?)

As of April 15th the orig­i­nal Xbox LIVE ser­vices will be dis­con­tin­ued.  Sor­ry die hard Xbox fans.  This also includes games for the orig­i­nal that are playable on the Xbox 360 for updates.  Microsoft’s rep Lar­ry Hryb said, “While I can’t com­ment on the specifics, this change will allow us to con­tin­ue evolv­ing the LIVE ser­vice with new fea­tures and expe­ri­ences that ful­ly har­ness the pow­er of Xbox 360 and the Xbox LIVE com­mu­ni­ty.  We did not make this deci­sion light­ly, but after care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion and review we real­ize that this deci­sion will allow us unprece­dent­ed flex­i­bil­i­ty for future fea­tures.”  Long live advance­ment (sor­ry non-upgraders)
