View Full Version : How do you name your XBOX?

02-10-2002, 04:32 PM
I've heard that you can change the multiplayer name of your xbox. Each console was prenamed for internet multiplayer settings. For example, when you log on for a LAN game, its shows your system name on the screen(Mine is named "Sneak", a friends is "The Big L", etc. Does anyone know how to change this prenamed feature? I saw some dude "selling" the information on ebay, but I'm not paying to find out how to do this.:)

At least those are decent names, my XBox name is Weasel! :( lol... I also like to know how to change the name.

Selling the information on ebay? How pathetic is that.

To change the name I always use DOA3. Whenever you get a new high score in play modes like time attack etc, the name you enter will automatically become the default name for the xbox. Mine is called Lynx Box now.

I'm sure there are other games that will do this. I'm not sure which others do it though. Maybe someone else here will know the answer.

I think that it kinda works like Halo on multiplayer. When you pick like one of the men it like gives you its own name. I was usually goat and weasel. Hmmm

Yeah...I want to change mine, too. Atleast, mine isn't as bad as "Howard" hehehehe...that's funny!

Mine is "The Bear"...not too bad, but, I want to change it to "BEER" :D

02-11-2002, 04:31 PM
Sounds like they didn't make unique names for all systems then. If more people have been reporting Walla Walla, Weasel, etc. Another one of my friend's is "bub"... who knows, I guess only time will tell when full internet play is released.

On Gamespy, I've seen Whisp, Howard, The Bear, Walla Walla (which is actually a town located in the state of Washington...Eastern Washington relatively near Spokane, in case you care to know), and a few other names I can't remember off the top of my head.

well when you start a multiplayer game in halo, it says join the xbox called ______(penguin, or somethien.) Whatever it says that your xbox's name. you can change it by getting high scores in different games like doa 3, or halo
