Maybe you have a group of friends coming over, and you want to link up Call of Duty to play against each other in teams of four. Or, maybe you and a friend want to play together, but each of you wants his own large screen. This is entirely possible, but it can only be done with two XBox consoles. Microsoft does not offer a method of playing on multiple screens with a single XBox.
Things You'll Need
- 2 XBox consoles
- 2 copies of the game
- System link cable
Turn off both XBox consoles. Attach one end of the system link (or Ethernet crossover) cable to the Ethernet port on one XBox, and the other end to the port on the back of the other XBox.
Connect each console to a television or monitor as you would normally.
Turn on both consoles and monitors. Follow on-screen prompts and instructions to play.
Tips & Warnings
- The Ethernet port on the XBox 360 is next to the audio/video port. On the 360 S, however, it is located below the auxiliary port.
- Not all games support system link play. Check the game's box for compatibility information before attempting a system link.
