If you didnt know, bill gates is cancelling xbox live service for early xbox live games like halo 2.
I think that they should have xbox live holidays for these games so that you will be able to play them again on live and not be sad forever.
For example whatever date halo 2 came out, they should reconnect halo 2 to xbox live for a week, to like celebrate its birthday.
This will also solve the problem of not being able to find anybody to play with on crimson skies or amped 2 because everybody will be marking their calenders for these "xbox live holidays" and many people will be playing.
the idea of not being able to play halo 2 on live makes me so sad i hope bill gates reads this post
