Free Online Play?

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Can you?

Could you really play Xbox 360 online for free with out the hassle of the subscription for Live Gold, if you really could do it, then how? I've heard that it has something to do with the router.

    No you can't. A router just makes it so you can have both your 360 and PC online at the same time.

    You could but it would be illegal to play any licensed Xbox games with other people. Edit: Technically speaking anyways.

    Notice the little Xbox-Live enabled logo on every game. Microsoft, I would assume, has some super-uber contract that makes it illegal to play their games without being subscribed with their Live service. Microsoft is all about the money and they stand to make a lot more that way.

    That XBox Live logo means it's possible to play the game that has the logo on XBox Live.

    Alright if you'd like to be pointed out in being wrong. I'm sitting here with a Xbox 360 game called "skate." and I'll type what it says on the back of the box relating to online multiplayer because I'm that generous in enlightening the ignorant masses.
    "Xbox LIVE System requirement with Xbox 360 system and games: Paid subscription required for online multiplayer, co-op and some downloads. Some Xbox LIVE services require additional hardware and fees. The Xbox LIVE service and associated hardware are not available in all countries, please visit http://www.xbox.com/live/ for more information."
    It continues with:
    "Features may change without notice. Subject to Terms of Use(at www.xbox.com/live/termsofuse/)." Aka check that shit out if you don't believe me speaking out of my ass.

    You can connect to the 3rd party Xbox Live servers, but I have no idea how you can connect to it, it wouldn't be called Xbox Live though unfortunately.

    It was simple to do with the original Xbox with a program called XLink Kai that allowed you to system link two or more consoles using the Internet, so if you want you could do some Googling to see if there's a similar program for the Xbox 360, though I'm doubtful.

    Could you not make all of us literate console gamers look like idiots on this site please? K, thanks. Anyway, a PC can be a great deal more expensive than a console to play games on, and in some respects with some people, its a better and cheaper experience to play on the 360 than on a PC, or vice versa.
