fo sheezy! lol. if u get a switch, router, or hub, then they can. you should go with a switch, theyre like the cheapest, and the best. cause they provide 100% bandwidth to each port, while a hub or router divides it up between each port:)

lol. you should buy a switch. it lets you connect multiple things (multiple computers, xbox), so they can go online at the same time.

If you buy the starter kit, it's $49.95 for the communicator, one game, and one year of service.

As far as I know, if you don't get the kit near or at launch, you'll be paying $9.95 a month. That was the last I heard a few weeks ago.
