Is that 128k up & down?

Should work fine if someone else is hosting the game (there are only a few servers actually hosted by MS, most are hosted on peoples own xbox).

If you hosted a game you would only people able to have about 3-4 players with 128k up.

this is a bit of issue at the moment, when live was anounced everyone thought MS would set up thousands of high speed servers hosting all the games. This turned out not to be the case, there are MS servers hosting unreal at the moment but MOST games will be hosted on peoples own machines.

This causes problems as people try to host 16 player games on innadequate connections (main reason for lag on live at the mo)

UC supposedly takes 28kbit/s (less than UTk3 on pc) for each player so...

ADSL with an upload speed of 256kbit/s could theoretically host 9 players, 8 comfortablely.

The MS servers can easily host 16 player unreal games. I think more will be setup as time goes on.
