XBOX360 LAN ROOM comparing to PS3

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This topic is in relation with the topic on the PS3 Board:

http://www.overclock.net/playstation...ml#post3857644

[INFO]
Ok, so here's the deal. We have a facility here that has a room available and the boss decided to make it a GAMING room. The idea is to have 6 60inch TVs and 6 gaming consoles. We're looking for games like HALO where you can split the screen in 4. If 4splitscreenx6tvs= 24ppl. so we could have up to 24 people.

[Question]
What would be the best gaming console to do this with ? I've looked online apparently they can both do LAN.
Is there a limit on how many can we connect?
Is there a limit on games ?


Can you share some PROs and CONs that you had/ or we might encounter with ?

I'd say 360 just because halo, and I think you can only have 16 for a lan game. Though that might be internet, dunno.

360. It has more lan friendly games than PS3. The main one is Halo 3 of course. Hell they even have a 360 in the break room at Best Buy.

Is there a limit on how many can we connect?


Do you mean how many different rooms you can host at once? Prolly several. .

Is there a limit on games ?

In terms of players, your limited by whats on the back of the box. MS took the time to out to tell how many people you can have in a room with you at one time during system link. It says this on the halo 3 box, System Link:1-16 players.

EDIT: its on the back of all 360 games with system link. As for PS3, i'll tell you when i pick of the MGS ps3 bundle.
