    but better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick...

    It's not a great alternative, I doubt it's changed much since the early days - it works by making the Xboxes think they are connected locally. This means it's assumed there's a high speed link between the machines and communication isn't needed as the machines are close by. However playing over an internet connection is much slower with higher latency which can lead to a lot of lag playing with this system plus it's a lot more difficult to communicate with the other players.

    better than nothing for ppl with a flashed box though.... i've used xlink kai on the original xbox to play which worked perfect. lag would depend on your internet connection and that of the other players, but it wouldn't be an issue just because it thinks its playing over system link

    This really isn't a viable option for most people as you need a ping time of 30ms or less on the Xbox 360.

    This is not a limitation of XBconnect, but a value that is hard coded into games by Mircrosoft precisely for the reason of making services such as this not viable for the masses.

    It was okay on Xbox 1 because this limit didn't exist

    Worth a shot, but ping time will only get slower as the service gets busier.

    The above ping time you posted has no relevance to anything.
