Playing Old Xbox Games Online
That is right its been about 4 years since Microsoft pulled the plug on Xbox Live for the first Xbox. This meant no more playing games online including the popular Halo 2. Until now that is XBConnect which actually has been around for quite sometime allows you to play our favorite old games online as long as they have System Link modes. Which means yes Halo 2, Forza, and Rallisport 2 are still playable online with this method. Another cool feature is Halo one is allowed to play with this method as well. Halo when originally released on the Xbox didn't have Xbox Live nor an online muliplayer mode but does have a System Link mode. So if your down for playing some Halo 2 online or other Xbox classics click the link below. If you are using Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 click the tutorial on how to correctly get the software working with your system. I'd like to thank my buddy Andrew for this information.
