One of the biggest reasons that I want to get in on the XBOX is because of the broad band aspect of being able to play your friends as well as strangers from all over the country or all over the world by way of the internet.

Right now I don't have a broad band connection in my home, recently I received a mailing from COMCAST offering cable modem service for $50 bucks a month. I'm assuming that this is what broad band is.

My question is this. Am I gonna have to pay COMCAST $50 bucks a month as well as paying XBOX $20-$25 per month in order to play games online?

Does anyone have any clue as to how internet gaming is gonna work with the XBOX and how expensive is it going to be, because at $75 bucks it's not gonna be worth it IMHO.

i think you should get the broadband, as for mapying monthly NO WAY JOSE!, there not charging monthly, some games will prolly be free and some will have a one time charge like maybe 50 bucks or something like that. what i really think there gonna do is give you 50 free hours 1st just like the DC that would be cool:D

Yeah a hub would work. Xbox doesnt browse the web at all BTW.
