There are plenty of system link games that support chat. Splinter Cell: Conviction is about the newest one I can think of. As for the distance, we're about stories apart. He rents out the basement of my house.
Just looking for someone to confirm that this is, indeed an issue and that I'm just not missing some step.
dornbush, any news on the voice chat issue? by chance, are any of the players in your system link game only on xbox live silver? i was going to get this game for my wife tonight, but her xbox acct. only has silver account, i'm assuming the system link would allow both of us to play regardless. thanks.
Bumping this topic for updates. Whether I pick it up or not depends heavily on whether or not system links works with chat and the like. --- GT: KnightofOrion "a conversation with an average Xbox Live user is like nailing a trout to a door: Pointless, stupid, and messy."- EmporerDragon
