Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
Im trying to figure out if I can do an 8 player game by just connecting my two Xboxes to two different TV's. If i can, how?
I dont want to buy Xbox live.
If you are looking to connect two XBox consoles together for offline play, the method can vary depending on the type of XBox you own.
For the original XBox, there should be two supported methods. The first allows you to directly connect two XBox consoles together using a "system link" or Cat 5 Ethernet crossover cable, while the second is to connect up to four XBox consoles using standard networking cables and an Ethernet hub.
With the XBox 360, there should be three methods available. The first is to directly connect the two consoles using a traditional Ethernet cable (RJ45), the second allows up to 16 different XBox 360's to connect by using standard networking cables and an Ethernet hub, while the third uses either a wireless router or the XBox's built-in Ad-Hoc networking tools to make a connection.
If you are unsure how to set up the consoles using any of these methods, you should be able to find step-by-step instructions in the owner's manual for your XBox, or by simply visiting the support section of Microsoft's homepage.
Hope this helps you out.
