Oh man, the most I've ever had on LAN was 4...:(

I have wanted to do a 16 so badly, but I don't know if I could get that many of the guys together in a big enough space...lol

Even 4 player on LAN is mad fun, though

I own two XBoxes. One is chillin' on a 36" Toshiba TV with Component inputs and the other is a 50" Toshiba Widescreen HDTV also running, of course, Component cables. I've had 8 people at my house doing some System Link gaming with Halo.

Also, every other weekend, I have a buddy hosts 16 man Halo matches. I attend almost every one of them. It's a blast. He's a police officer and, at his station, he can borrow 4 projectors that project the video on the 4 screens. The image is about 80" big and his house is perfectly set up to host 16. It's sweet, but, the projectors are not nearly as good as my HDTV, so, it's a slight adjustment I have to make.

Either way, I seem to always manage to come into 1st place every time I go there :D hehe...one time, they didn't even invite me because they wanted to see what it would be like without me wasting everyone :D

Yes, I'm flaunting :D

i only have one xbox, but ive got friends, and they've got xboxes. put it all together and we can get together one great sixteen player halo party. we usually have one every couple of months, maybe more depending on how many people are willing to host one (everyone is willing to come, not everyone is willing to shell out some cash for food and host)

Only $45 for an Xbox? Hmm where did you acquire such a cheap price for a $180 game system? I'm not accusing you of buying stolen merchandise, but a little curious.

As for a second Xbox, I don't need one at this point considering the genres I like to play with other people (sports and FPS games) are online via Xbox Live and I don't need a second one to experience fun multiplayer gameplay. One of my favorite game types is playing co-op with a friend, and since no game makers have adopted system link co-op single player games, it limits the options.

Maybe if I had some extra money laying around and some extra TVs, I would consider getting another. Until then, I will just go solo.

:cheers:

My guess is he either meant $145 or it was cheap second hand or both

I got it from a buddy of mine that owns a Fantasy Shop(comics,cards,anime,etc etc)He told me a guy came into his shop,with the Xbox and wanted to trade it for some mercahandise(cards, comics,anime,etc etc)Well i was coming into the shop to sell him a extra DVD remote that i had from my 2nd Xbox( I got that one from a Pawn shop for only $100).Thats when he showed me the one i got for $45.The owner of the store was like u wana buy a Xbox? I was like, you still want to buy the DVD remote.He asked me if $80 dollars was a good price for the xbox, I told him not for me:) Then he said $60, I was like sold!!!I got $15 for the DVD remote and gave it back to him plus $45. The xbox came by it self no wires no controller.That was until i pluged it up and DarkSummit loaded!!! Im not keeping the game im gona take it back to him.The owner of the Fantasy shop is a real cool guy and he knows I am tring to make a Halo Lan.He has backup DVDs that play on XBOX with out a Mod chip.Most are Kung-Fu flicks like Hero staring Jet Li and Donnie Yen(Snowball from Blade2) great quality so ummm :watchout:if you are into Kung-Fu imports hit me up and I can see what I can get for you.

I had two. I bought one when xbox first came out and then i won one from taco bell around the same time but traded it to my friend for a brand new snowboard and bindings. I am probably gonna get another one and sell my old one to my brother so he can stop coming in my room with his friends.

I've got one, and two of my friends have an Xbox so if we ever want to do LAN or something the option is there.

Me and some friends have been thinking to try and set up a 16 player LAN but no one wants to buy the system link. We are all poor and we are all about 15.

When me and my friends all get together we can set up some good lans. Usually we only do two(we only have two copies of Halo) but if we had more we could definitely have the max 4 boxes with the max 16 players.

BunnyRabbit

You only need one system link to hook up 4 Boxes right?

^^What?
<hr>

Alright, to make a 16-player Halo Lan work, you will need:

4 TVs
4 Xboxi
4 copies of Halo
1 Hub/router/switch
4 Straight through ethernet cables with RJ45 ends
16 controllers
16 people
Lots of food and drinks(non-alcoholic of course ;))
