GameSpy allows Xbox Games Online pleasure!

Cheers Roger of MS Gaming News for this wonderful news for XBOX owners, read on! They said it couldn't be done - they were wrong!

Playing your Xbox games online is now not only possible - it's a snap, provided you have the right equipment and a few minutes to properly configure your setup.

In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through the entire process of going from single-player Xbox newbie to online Xbox gamer. Note: this guide assumes that you have a single computer connecting directly to the Internet. This should apply to most folks with cable or DSL connections - but not dialup modems.

    You'll need the following equipment to get started playing Xbox games over the Internet:

  • A Microsoft Xbox console

  • A PC running a Windows OS (We've tested with Windows 98, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Those of you running Windows ME or NT shouldn't experience any problems.)

  • A supported game (Currently only Halo, NASCAR Heat 2002 and Tony Hawk 2X.)

  • A FAST broadband connection. (You will need at least 128kbps upstream bandwidth for most games, although Halo can require up to 256kbps upstream bandwidth per player in the game. If your connection is not fast enough you WILL experience lag and connection loss problems. No modem support is available or planned.)

  • A hub or switch (You can find a 4 or 5 port hub at most computer stores for $30-50.)

  • Two network cables (Any old RJ45 network cables will do.)
