You know you need two copies of the game, right?

But yeah, you can either connect the 360 directly with a regular Ethernet cable, or you can plug them both into your network.

No,that's not right.

I tell you truth! Why u no believe me!

*coughs*

You never need a crossover cable with the 360, you can even connect it directly to an old original Xbox with a regular Ethernet cable. If you waste your money on a crossover cable I'm going to laugh at you.

I mean, you CAN use a crossover cable if that's all you have but you're wasting your money and getting and old obsolete cable if you do. The 360 will auto-switch so you can connect directly to other machines. And like I said, even an old Xbox. The 360 would take care of it to switch those umm... is it three wires around? I forget, it's been awhile since I've cut my own cable, and much longer since I've cut a crossover.

No offense but you're going to websites full of idiots.

Unless they changed something with the slims, but I don't see why they would do that. And if one of the Xbox 360 is an old model then it doesn't matter if the other is a slim.
