well..i believe the most players ya can have in a syslink game like halo is 16 so do the math

I believe the number of XBOXs for System-Link depends on the developer of the game. I know the limit for Halo is 16, 4 x 4 XBOX's. But thats Halo. I can't remember the game but I thought one was comming out that could support 8 XBOXs....

Remember your network port links to LIVE and it supports 1000's of players or XBOX's. I just depends on the game.

Deathrow supports 16 systems (for 1 person on each screen) there might be multiple players on one screen if desired. Timesplitters 2 is kind of odd. 8 systems 2 players on each (so still 16 players) however I bet you can cram 4 players on 4 systems. Who knows for sure, but I'll find out when I get both those titles. Signing off...

well there isnt a set # you can link up 1231239 but you cant play the same game the highest right now is nascar heat 8 xboxes and im not sure if you can have 32 xboxes, TV's and games if that would work but it would be cool.

i think the most was 16 xboxes for a grand total of 64 players.

thanks guys.We have a 5 port hub but we are gona run 4 xboxs and yes HALO does only have 16 maybe on HALO2 they will make it for a bigger network but 16 will be fine for now.last night we hooked up only 2 and that was a blast and if u havent had a chance to play linked XBOXs yet u dont know what u are missing!!!so i can imagine 4!!!IF u live in fayetteville NC we are having a XBOX party at FORCE OF NATURE paintball shop.i cant wait to play 4 of them

On a Hub with no lag? Odd, but still only with 2 systems. Many people say Hubs are lag-o-mania but switches or routers are fine. If you link up 4 systems and 16 people, lemme know if there is lag or not. My friend got a new computer and his dad got a hub and the speed was literally cut in half whenever both computers were in use and they are only running on 2 computers. Signing off...

MotoGP allows 16 Xboxes to be linked but only one player per box.

Battlefield: 1942 is supposed to be able to have 32 players with 8 xboxes hooked together, but you will probably have to pay a monthly fee from EA. :mad:

well you can hook up 4 including yours which adds up to 16 people tops.:)
