On April 15, Microsoft will flip the switch on Xbox Live support for Original Xbox games, ending an era, but for a lucky few Halo 2 players, they’ll be heavily rewarded for their “loyalty” to the game.
According to Kotaku, several Halo 2 gamers have been contacted by the Xbox Live team thanking them for their “loyalty” and gifting them 400 Microsoft Points, a 3-month Xbox Live Gold membership and an invitation to the highly coveted Halo: Reach multiplayer beta because “because you’ve been so loyal to Halo.”
Anyone receive this e-mail? I didn’t play much Halo 2, so I didn’t expect one, but I know there are many who continue to play it.
Smart move on Microsoft’s part to attempt to get these stubborn Original Xbox gamers to upgrade.
