XBConnect was formed in March 2002 by Tod Liverseed. His main goal was to give users a place to meet new people who share a common interest. Since then we have evolved into one of the best known Xbox tunnels available.

XBConnect works by making your Xbox think it is participating in a local area network (LAN). Best part of all, it’s completely legal, and completey free to use. Any System Link game for the Xbox console is available to play on XBConnect. Setup is easy; we have a help staff, forums, and help web pages to get you started. So what are you waiting for? Grab your friends and head over do the downloads page and get hooked.

With the release of the Xbox 360 we are pleased to announce we are still going strong. Why pay a fee to enjoy online gaming? Grab your favorite title and join in on the free alternative to online gaming. Backwards compatible games can play with regular xbox consoles on XBConnect as well. Still hooked on Halo2, no need to go back to the origional XBox, challenege your opponents on the Xbox 360.
