Why don't you guys just purchase another Xbox 360?

You can say Shut Up, but adding the TF will get you modded.

Then you don't have to worry about backwards compatibility because you will always have a second 360, geez

Actually, this is exactly what I plan to do at some point. Hell, I own three Dreamcasts, but my original still works fine. Also have two PS2s.

Once MS closes off XBL access for the 360, additional consoles won't save your precious digital content. Unless you're on both the gamertag and the 360 console that the digital content licenses are tied to, you need to be signed into XBL to access it. And since XBL won't be accessable by the 360 anymore...

Your ability to use that content dies with whatever 360 you're currently using when the 360 is dropped by MS.

I don't see that happening any time soon though.

XBL on the original xbox was dropped because it was so limiting and had few features. XBL on the 360 seems to be more flexible, so it may stay longer.

In the future, I imagine MS will turn off the MP and perhaps a few other features of Live 2.0. Yet still maintaining access to patchs, licenses, games, etc.
A bare bones Live 2.0 as it were. I think the Xbox 360/Live 2.0 may stay profitable for the next 3-5 years...but that's just my guess.
