As we reported recently that Xbox Live no longer supports original Xbox games on Xbox Live.  It turns out a few Halo 2 Diehards have found a way, at least for now, around the system to keep playing online

"Throughout the past week, a small group of dedicated ‘Halo 2’ players kept their Xbox[es] on so that they could enjoy the game for a while longer," a poster named Joe Campbell wrote on the official Bungie forums. "As long as we don’t turn off our Xbox[es], or lose connection, we can stay online. Our Xbox[es] have been on for nearly 14 days straight!"

"We will keep playing until we are all forcibly removed," Campbell said. "It could be by Microsoft, Bungie, our Xbox[es] overheating, or just lagging out. Not for competition, not for a prize, but for the love, and memory of "Halo 2.’"

This is very interesting news and kudos to those diehard fans who continue to play for the love of the game.  As we also mention in our previous post, Halo 2 for PC is still supported on the Games for Windows with even new maps and achievements.
