2 Players on one console online? XBox 360 Question

Found 19th Jul 2008
Ok, I really don't understand the following. I have a mate coming round in the next half hour, and I want to play some XBox. I have COD4, GTA4, Orange Box and Halo 3. Can I play any of these with two people, on the same console, online??

I'm a bit confused at the difference between the descriptions!

not sure about gta but i'm sure you can with the others. you'll be signed in as yourself and i think you're friend will need to be signed in as a guest.

cheers, have an orange dot!

You can play Halo 3 online with two players on your console. Your friend will have to be signed in as a guestt I believe.

COD4 can, but only if he has his own gamertag and Xbox live subscription. Don't bother trying multiplayer offline, as it'll just be two of you running round.

GTA IV is only one player on the console.

Orange Box im not sure about.

Cheers Andrew. Halo 3 and Orange Box are still in the wrapper since January. Will need to crack them open!

Orange box is worth cracking open for Portal, even if you can't both play online

Your friend is obviously late. You said half an hour and that was 35 mins before your last post. If you respond to this post baz, I might even think your friend is of the imaginary variety :whistling:

EDIT: oh good, 9 mins and no response. It's a real friend, and one who is only slightly late!

Glad you enjoyed your games. Did Mummy come in and ask you who you were talking to at any stage..?

on the back of the game case the top line is offline and the bottom line is online.

yea can def play halo with 2 people but only in player matches and not ranked matches.
