Yes, Halo is one of the few games that allows you do both split screen and live/system link at the same time. It is possible to play four player campaign with two per xbox over system link.

Wireless works fine for Xbox System Link. Microsoft's help page for system link states: A system link cable or crossover cable for each console, an Ethernet hub or switch with enough open ports to connect the consoles together, or a wireless networking adapter for every console. The more recent version of the Xbox 360 has a wireless adapter built-in. ...

EDIT: I just remembered about the world of Picture in Picture! All you need is an HDMI Switch, Matrix, Video Processor or any PiP compatible HDMI device. I found this one that does what you're looking for, although it's RCA only, so no HD. I also found HDMIs one on a famous asian wholesale website, but I won't link to it since I have no way to tell if it ...

Yes. You can play any backwards compatible games (which includes Halo 1) via System Link between an original Xbox and an Xbox 360. You can't just connect the two Ethernet ports together, however as the original Xbox requires a crossover cable. You can however, plug them both into the same router.

This is especially likely if you connect regularly to XBox Live on the newer XBox 360, but the older XBox 360 has not connected in a while. Your options at this point are to clear all ...

OK, I can now confirm: A new slim, PAL Xbox 360 worked with a relatively old NTSC (60gb/hdmi) Xbox 360. System Link was flawless, we connected the two directly with a lan cable HOWEVER: The two copies of Halo 3 we had were both NTSC, not PAL. I am not sure whether this would work with PAL+NTSC game copies. p.s Halo 3 > Reach

I'm going to give this an attempt, although I cannot test it. While searching on the web, most people say the Xbox isn't the factor, but rather the game is. Some are region-locked, and some are region-free. It appears Halo: Reach is region-free. Taken from Here (more than half way down the page in the Questions section) Q. Will Halo: Reach be ...
