Anyone who has been banned from XBox Live, or anyone who wants to play online though dosnt want to shell out £40 a year to play online, help may be at hand in the form of Xbox Connect.
Ok, so its not fully online play, you still cant connect to XBox Live, though what this does let you do it play games which support system link, to then play with people over the internet.
You jsut plug your 360 into your router, plug your PC in and run the software, you can then chat and fine people to play against on your computer, when your ready to play, you just join them in a room, then fire up a system link game on your XBox.
Your XBox then thinks its directly connected to these people, though your actually connected over the internet!!
Its a great little piece of software, and perfect for anyone out there who is banned, or dosnt want to pay M$ for something every other console gives you for free!!!
