You might remember that back in May, we learned of a new, unofficial project called Insignia that would reportedly allow original Xbox owners to play games online without any modifications or patches to software.

Since then, the team behind the project has posted a couple of videos to YouTube showing games actually working via the service, and they appear to be running very well indeed! You can get a look at Unreal Championship above, which shows two developers playing online with two bots, and MechAssault below, which again features the same two developers (one in the UK, one in the US).

We still don't have a date of when players will be invited into the service yet, although the team has previously mentioned that a private beta will follow when testers are required. We'll let you know when we learn more!
