Online play will be laggy unless the host of the game has a really fast connection won't it? I can't stand lag thats why I hate PC games.

I've got cable and i'm worried about lag

I assume that the official MS service will have a really fat pipe and lag won't be a problem.

Gamespy, on the other hand, is unpredictable.

I'd like to say this again...

THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN PLAY WITH 56K !!!! It just won't happen man, like come on now, your saying it would be really laggy, it just wouldn't work, THAT is why there is a BroandBand adapter with Xbox and NOT 56K, and I HIGHLY doubt they will release a modem. The online gaming won't be AS laggy as PC gaming because PC gaming has 56K to contend with. And like said b4, microsoft will have HUGE bandwidth, they have TONS of money so they can afford all the bandwith... lol

I'm looking forward to online gaming myself, cause I have yet to put my cable connection to gaming use for the year i've had it. Well the odd PC game, but nothing major.
