Doesn't it? The "ignorant majority", as you call them, simply do not give a flying flip if 13 people are still playing Halo 2. They don't care that you can't play Halo 2 on XBL. Frankly, I don't care either. Eventually every game you buy and love multiplayer will have no one left to play with. It sucks a little bit that Microsoft has the power to move that date up, but it doesn't suck enough for me to not buy XBL games. Don't expect the "ignorant majority" to fight a battle for you when they simply do not care.
