Microsoft to kill online play for original Xbox games Microsoft is going to kill online play for original Xbox games on April 15, 2010. This will include such titles as Street Fighter Anniversary Collection, which has Street Fighter 3 Third Strike and Hyper Street Fighter 2.


Online play will no longer function even if you own an Xbox 360, as this will remove the ability to play these titles online even if they're backwards-compatible discs.

Many players have already moved on to other places for these games like GGPO and Supercade (formally 2DF), which offer a better online experience, but this move should migrate the rest of the fans who were still hanging on.

Microsoft stated that this move will provide a great benefit to the Xbox Live community going forward, although they didn't say exactly what this will be.
