We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
Allot of people are posting this question already. My guess is it will be running for a long time. With the old Xbox, they stopped supporting one year, then two years down the line they turned of online play for it.
It just depends, however they will post anything regarding the retirement of Xbox 360's live play on the forums in a service announcement. So please be sure to keep a watch on those. I suggest bookmark in your browser

I heard 2016 and with more research not for 3 more years because MS is not losing any money on Xbox One yet which forces MS to keep 360 running due to the fact they are pulling in a bigger share (40 %) of profit through the 360 and not through the Xbox One
yet. Even though, several options will be drop one by one within the 360 system like points shifted into current currency instead the MS point system is just a taste of dismantling of the 360. I still will not buy any more 360 games from here on out because
who knows what MS will really do. One thing we all can agree on is MS will never come right out with it unless it killing their bottom line. however, at some point in time, MS will need to pull the 360 system off line for good when will this be who knows it
is all speculation right now. When my account ends in October I will be gone from Live and head to a another network or none at all. In ending, just enjoy access you have now I am sure you will be seeing little by little disappear from the 360 live system
as time goes on but while it is here use it spending little while you use it.
True too, enjoy what time you have with it whilst its still supported. The original xbox is no longer supported but there's still plenty of fun to be had on that! With the sheer amount of games available for the 360 its still going to be an awesome machine
even when support stops. Sure, there will never be an endless LIVE support for it but whilst there is, just enjoy it :)
