who's on XBOX live?

hey-

been getting addicted to Project Gotham 2 ever since Xmas, and just set up my XBOX live about a week ago. it's so much fun playing people around the world! i thought it'd be pretty bitchin to get some games goin' with some FF buddies (i also have Midtwon Madness 3 and Ford Racing 2). if anybody wants to get a game going sometime next week(busy this weeknd), let me know.

also, if anyone wants to add me to their "friends" list, my name is whiteboyslo on XBOX live, too. if you'd like, post your name here and i'll add you to my "friends" list as well.

Mike

I would be if it didn't cost $50 per month. PGR2 owns NFSU.

try $50 a year. who told you it's $50 a month? the starter kit (which get syou the headset and a year's free subscription) is $50. add the 2 free months that come with PGR2, and you got over a year of fun.

oh, and almost any game owns NFSU. that thing was such a disappointment

Online gaming has got to be the best thing ever.... er.... or the worst. I have seen the future of divorce.(kidding). I've been on there quite a bit for a couple of days on rainbow six 3. Find me under apeman426.

I have PGR2. Do I still need a starter kit to get my two free months? Do I need to put in my credit card info to get 2 free months?

Yep you will need a credi card number. Then when the free subscription is up they will try to automaticly charge it to renew your subscription. It's really slick, it happend to alot of my friends and they all got pissed. Just get some credit card that comes in the mail and use that and then just cancel it afterwards. Then Microsft will send you an "urgent" letter notifying you that in order to keep your subscription uninterupted (sp) you must give them another card number, a friend of mine tried it and that's what microsoft sent him. PS2 OWNZ online

i'm sorry? PS2 ownz online? maybe for price, but i've seen the connection speeds from PS2 vs. xbox and was not impressed. don't PS2s have to have some sort of central server to connect to? with xbox, anyone can host a game, and it is my understanding that that person is actually acting as the server.

anywho, i can't beleive with all the teenagers and 20-something year olds that no one here is online with PG2.

The connection speed is just as fast as any other broad band connection. The only thing that sucks is if you have to play with somebody who's on dial up. I don't have either online kit but alot of other people do in the dorms and most people play PS2 around here. the primary reason is because there are alot of games.

I talked to a guy that said he hooked his xbox up to his computer while using a dialup connection & got connected to xbox live. Do my friends absoloutely high speed internet or is it just recommended?
