Well, They did it.

Just yesterday, I could play NHL 2005 for the original Xbox with no problem. But today, I popped in NHL 2005 and my 360 told me it wasn't supported anymore! Microsoft has gone great lengths to tick me off and basically BAN one of my favourite NHL games of all time!! Can we e-mail Microsoft and reverse this? or is this just a devestation I'll just have to live with for the rest of my life? Please help. I will be appreciated.

You would think that MS would have sent you a courtesy notice to the regulars of your game, prior to just  not supporting it.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Microsoft shutdown online support for original Xbox games last year (not yesterday).  The fact that NHL 2005 (single player) was playable yesterday, but not today, would be due to EA, not Microsoft shutting down the servers for the game.  Again something that happened a while back.  Link.

 

if you think this problem extends to all (compatible) original Xbox games, then you should Read the Thread for more advice.
