I bought my XBox some days ago and it worked all fine :D I was very happy that I got it. But then I noticed the lag, or do you really call it lag? Well anyway I play Halo, with friends. When I play Co-op with my buddies the FPS drops, hard to aim.. hard to control the car whatever you in. Is there something wrong with my XBox? It's a pain in the ass and I need some help! Thanks!

Does it work perfect for you? Do I have to set some preferences or something?

So when you play your friends, are you on a LAN or playing over XboxConnect? Are you using a switch? Do you notice any recognizable framerate issues when playing single player?

If you're using a switch, either you have too much distance with the CAT5 cables, or your cables are just junk.

For the controls, it might be the controller, or you just are not used to Halo controls yet. Otherwise Halo runs at 30 FPS (most games run at 60) so there is a little frame rate dropping.

shew that's a REAL low FPS i thought they were suppossed to run at like 100 because less than 80 it's really detectable or something like that...

Try contacting your xbox support speacilist
Or take it back, make sure you have all the parts and recieit.
If it still lags take the game back and get a new one ( only if it laggs on the new box you got after taking the other back) there could be some loose wires inside your box.

It lags under single player too, when you got many monsters on the screen and when you play splitscreen 2 - 4 players. Im use to the Halo controls so it's not that.
