    Using a router.

    Is it possible?

    It should be possible, because you can have up to 4 players on one X-box whilst playing LIVE.

    If it has the bandwidth for 4 people it should handle two x-boxes on one connection, but you won't get many guests on the two machines before it will go tits up.

    Two people playing single player is bound to work though.

    Also I've got bandwidth LEDs on my router, and whilst I'm on Live it doesn't show any strain at all, the missus still surfs the net and so do the neighbours who are on my network ;-)

    We have had 6 people going through a 512K cable modem onto public net servers. This was with PCs and Counterstrike/UT. There was no effect to ping.

    I doubt you will be able to host games that effectively, but for joining games it should be fine. If there are problems then that would signify that the games have awful netcode! There is no way any current game requires that much bandwidth, an online game relies on small packets transferred quickly.

    Sounds good... so does this mean I will be able to put my gamer tag on a memory card and put it from one Xbox to another, then use that gamer tag at the same time the other?

    I'm almost positive that you cannot put your gamertag on a card and move it around, because it's registered to your x-box only.
    Maybe I'm wrong, but that would open up a whole can of worms for fraudulent use.

    You can save MotoGP bikes and take them to a friends xbox, so i've heard.

    P.S. MotoGP is only £20 at toys r us, and unless the new game is a lot different I wouldn't buy it.



    Also, does any one know if the two games will be compatible on Live, so that people with MotoGP 2 can race against people that have the Live demo of MotoGP1?

    you can move your gamertag between xboxes using a memory card.

    No problems or restrictions, the beta testers got a memory card to allow just this, and some of the Live bundles from broadband providers include a memory card. See the link below.

    No restriction on number of consoles either, just be sure you've a big enough link.

    I saw an movie on the Xbox live site and it explained that you could save your gamertag to a memory card and take it with you as long as your mates have a bb connection
