1. Connect your Xbox 360 to two screens at once 2. Play your own music in original Xbox games 3. It can write its own blog 4. Play Xbox 360 games online for free - without a Live account 5. Interact with your Xbox 360 music ....
They forgot -- "The xbox 360 actually calls the fire department when the system overheats and threatens your home."
FFS Silogon how many times i gotta tell you they charge extra for that :)
My friend's 360 "drunk-dials" me.
No kidding...his 360 is an abusive drunk too!
xD You guys are silly.
Common now, there are more RRODs than just two per console, you should have used Resistance chimera eyes, instead :)
11# how to Brain wash the Mindless Retards in to buying and supporting there pile of Sh!t company and Console!!!!
You shouldn't be so hard on juveniles! They are usually too young to know any better!(Says the guy with a children's avatar) ;p
Nice List...I still don't want one!!! ;-D
Get a load of this! "Fine hear it is. Your a F**king Moron if u buy PC hardware every few months or years. there good enough? go update your PC idiot. il use a Console and NOT upgrade like i always have and never need to do. just F**k off with your if u think PC's are the Gamers chioce retard. Only Fat moroic losers waste Money On Game PC's. Go use that Money on a Girl. $700 on a PC that will be a tard in 3 months is a F**king joke like you IQ kid." I think you sony crowd should crank up the dumbass filter a bit, juuken you are respectable I'll leave you to that.
wow its all old news here if you don't know even half of the stuff here you really don't own a xbox360 at all
Yes, because every gamer has to live in a basement and faithfully research every little aspect of the console. Clearly, you can't enjoy games without such knowledge...
hahaha that funny lol
...and I knew all of this within the first year. :o
you got him/her good.
Haha yes, they knew about the HDMI on the 360 when Microsoft was still saying it wasn't needed. BTW, now I can play online with my 360! Xlink Kia FTW.
You can also use it as a toaster. :D
Of course, all I did was game on my 360, and didn't bother to research all of the hidden features. Well, now I know. I'll probably try some of these.
Same here, using the box to game on and not experiment with.. that's what PCs are for :P Most of those tips wasn't anything surprising, except from the wifi part.. sounds pretty interesting, but I don't trust any wireless networking so I'll probably never use it.
I got a HDMI arcade for my 2nd 360 and tried to use a HDMI cable with the original component cable with the jacket off so it fits in with the HDMI cable. Worked and I had full 5.1 to my amp via the optical out. Problem was whenever I changed channel off HDMI 1 on my samsung 1080pLCD(say to see what was on TV) and then went back to HDMI 1 the xbox360 would power cycle. The only fix was to get the proper optical out dongle (comes with the elite or Xbox HDMI kit).Now it works fine. (b4 I got the proper optical dongle I also tried my VGA cable with the otical out, same problem) Just thought Id let anyone know who comes across this problem.
There is a trick to solve this problem. I think someone or some people over at avsforum.com figure out how. They had to snip a wire inside the component cable... Personally, I just don't switch channels....
Play Xbox 360 games online for free – without a Live account That you have to pay a subscription for online gaming, something that's free on other consoles and on the PC, is perhaps the 360's greatest bugbear. Stage your own form of peaceful process by playing online without paying a penny. You'll need XLink Kai, a free app you run from a PC on the same network as the console that tricks the 360 into thinking the internet is a LAN. So it'll treat remote opponents as though they're in the same room as you – and you don't have to pay for local multiplayer. Clever! One snag – Microsoft has set the 360 to boot out anyone with a ping higher than 30ms, so you'll have to be selective about who you play with. Local chums are best, not your Chinese penpal.
Worked great for Halo 2, CounterStrike, Unreal, Any game that featured LAN play. Even Halo 1 worked with it. Now it isn't Xbox Live, So don't expect fast connections and streamed lined searching for games, stats, achievements. But for the poor man looking for a quick fun game, it works. Great for those people with Modded Xbox's, and also works with PSP network games.
for pretty much any 360 game. Almost all 360 games require less then 30 ms ping to any xbox over "LAN". It sends a little encrypted package that the other 360 will decode and sent the correct reply back. And you don't have 30 ms ping to pretty much anyone on the internet. Maybe if they live in the same city. But the odds that someone close enough to you have gone through all the mess of setting up kai and want to play the same game as you are slim to none. Rest of the advice is pretty much bullshit also.
Thx for the replys guys, Bubbles+
"1. Connect your Xbox 360 to two screens at once" How about 4? ;)
..that was a feature of Forza 2 that was never put in the full game, which allowed you, with 4 seperate Xbox 360s, to play on up to 4 screens at once
Yes that's true =( You needed one 360 for each screen.
i guess theres nothing else to do in your lives? i dont get it
get it yet?
it's pre RROD'ed.
here's a trick try to show your penis to a female for the first time while not getting embarrised :/ This site is horrible now its just for fanboy dorks that is poor and don't know anything hardly about gaming. Can't believe i even tryed this n4g site again... still the same garbage.
try learning how to spell embarrassed for the first time while not getting embarrassed (sad face) ....wait...a minute... "don't know"...+ "hardly"...are really...double negatives...which equals a POSITIVE...meaning we actually "know" stuffs...KA CHING! Sorry I disagreed with you, bro. I hardly don't know you...oppss, that was a lie
It's: oops <---- Lolz
they forgot the towel trick
I've been trying to get my ipod working with my xbox for a while now but it isn't working. My first 360 was fine with playing the music but then my second and now my third systems arent even recognizing it. Does anyone know the problem? I already downloaded the optional thing off the marketplace.
I had the same problem - the only solution is restoring your iPod from iTunes. Backup all your music and videos and whatever, then restore the thing (full restore, which formats the iPod HDD) and upload everything back inside. Once you're done, x360 should recognize the player just fine. PS At least this method worked for me.
Thanks man, I guess I'll try that.
i knew most of this, I use a different WIFI connector than the one MS offers. I also plug my phone into the USB port and play music of of it and charge it at the same time while playing. That LAN feature doesnt work to great, expect to get kicked off.
I guess this information will be usfull for those who didn't know about this stuff.
Use the USB port on the 360 to charge a Nintendo DS.
lol nice one
Trick # 11: It can be used as a heater Trick # 12: It can make jet engine noises
I guess this is where the party is for the PS3 fanboys? I guess I'm in the wrong place... Hmm, wait.. this is a 360 [only] article, isn't it? How bout that?
"Hit X whilst playing a music CD or file (whether from the 360's hard drive, an MP3 player you've plugged in, or streamed from a PC) and you'll enter Psychedelic Wonderland. Well, some artful visualisations, anyway. Grab a controller or two (or up to four, as it happens) and start moving thumbpads and pressing buttons to interact with the crazed shifting colours. There are actually some fairly elaborate controls – read the full manual at" poor droids have no idea how great this is. blows away any music visualization on any platform to date, including PC. poor droids.
wasnt disney gana do something with lbp?
My 360 could do all that cool stuff so I could play my halo 3 save films with the music on
well well well looks like im not the only one that made a mistake
Its a great tool for arsonists.
some of those weren't tricks like the last one HDMI comes with audio...so its not a trick. Some of the other ones are obvious as well
I didn't know a few of them, I'll try a few tricks.
Added 3 more reasons 1.) it flies eggs 2.) arsonist's best friend 3.) act as a heater in winter - warning: heater may explode.
i found that the 4th 1 was more of a hack. but for real none of these where useful honestly the 16 ps3 tricks where better
