Question Xbox/Xbox 360 System Link ?'s

Ok, so this weekend I plan on having 3 or so guys over. I want to play some Halo 2 and have never had numerous people bring Xboxs to my house.

I have an Xbox 360 w/ controller, a Philips flatscreen TV and Xbox Live.

Assuming 3 people come and each bring their own Xbox, 1 controller,1 copy of Halo 2 and a TV.

That takes care of the systems, games, TVs and controllers.

So with that said, I still need to hook them all up.

-Is it possible to system-link between an Xbox 360 and 3 normal xboxs?
-What do I need to hook them all up? (Be specific and where I can buy it.)

Thanks guys

im not sure about the 360 to Xbox's capibilities, but you would need a system link cable from every xbox plugged into something (router) IMO System link is different then ethernet so ask your local game store what you need....they should know

#1. Routers work fine. You're wrong. I've had 4 XBOX's hooked up to 4 TV's using a single Netgear 4 port Cable/DSL router. If yours didn't work you're an idiot.

#2. A hub will work fine as well... as long as you dont want to get on LIVE. If you plan to get on LIVE then you'll want a cable/DSL router to get things running smoothly.

Your best long term bet is get a Cable/DSL router at your local computer store. They're not expensive (under 50 bucks, if not the high 30's) and it'll be a much smoother transition as it will automatically assign all the necessary IP's and access information to each of the XBOX's w/o any special tweaking and so forth.
