Xbox Live 1.0, aka, Xbox Live for the original Xbox, as you probably already know, is shutting down in mere minutes: 3am Eastern. It is now 2:17am, and I am going to play some Halo 2 right until they hit the kill switch.

It’s sad to see something with so much history go down so fast. But like Microsoft said, the ending of Xbox Live 1.0 will pave the way for new features in Xbox Live 2.0.

I salute you Xbox Live. You will be missed, but forever in our memories.
