Xbox 360 LAN party (filmed in 2016)

A couple of old friends connect their Xbox 360’s to an Ethernet Switch for a LAN party in November 2016. Games played are: Halo 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops and the original Left 4 Dead.

— Note on COVID: ———————————————————————

This video was filmed in November 2016,
DO NOT throw a LAN party right now.

With COVID, now is a truly terrible to time to throw a LAN party. The LAN party has all the essential ingredients for COVID spread.

However I thought this video which I have left on my hard-drive for years, saving it for a time like this- might be fun to distract you for a few minutes and give you an idea for something to try out once COVID has settled down.

— Description ———————————————————————

We’ve talked a lot on this channel about all the wonderous things you can do with an Xbox 360. But one feature that we are yet to discuss is it’s System Link capability which makes it a truly fantastic device for LAN parties.
But you might be asking yourself, what is a LAN party?

Well hopefully this video will show you and demonstrate how a couple of cheap, old Xbox 360’s can be easily connected together to make for hours of gaming fun with no need for the internet or an Xbox Live subscription.

If you want to try this (after COVID has calmed down)
You’ll need one of these per person:
– Xbox 360 Console
– Power Cord / Power Supply
– One copy of each game per person
– HDMI or AV Cable
– Monitor or TV with HDMI, Component or Composite video input
– Ethernet Cable
– Router or Ethernet Switch

– Tea or a Beer if that’s more your thing

(ensure you check all the Xbox’s are running the same system and game firmware)

    Thank you for the message at the start of the video. You are very aware of your audience and I like that. Love the video and love your channel, you have a very unique, special, nostalgic and inspiring way of making videos. Have a cup of tea and a good day everyone 😉

    thank you for this! I was wondering if you are able to get backwards compatible games like original Star Wars Battlefront 2 to work on the 360 lan? I was able to get Crimson Skies to work but not Star Wars.

    Are my ears deceiving me? Was that commodore supercharged? My understanding was that all commodores fitted with the L67 opposed to the L36 were automatic.
    I'm definitely not denying the possibility of such modifications. It does fascinate me however.
    If it was supercharged, that would've been a mean vehicle to drive. If not, that would still have been a mean vehicle to drive.
    As the old Aussie homage goes, "never late in a 3.8".
