Some of you may already know this, but there is already a way to play online without waiting for the microsoft internet service for xbox. I just got this months XBN magazine and it goes through it in detail so pay attention! And i'm sorry if you came in here expecting some phonomal thing but I at least thought this was the shit. You will need an xbox, one of the only three supported game sso far which is halo, tony hawk 2x, or nascar heat 2002, and a hub with an extra wire. YOu will also need to pieces of software. The first is called gamespy arcade and the other is called gamespy tunnel. both can be found at www.gamespyarcade.com. There is more to it than that but how to hook it up and stuff is all explaned at www.gamespyarcade.com/support/tunnel_xbox.shtml. they you gotta kinda figure it out for your self since i'm too lazy to type this but basically that's it. Cool 'eh? I'll see ya in halo!
