    Apparently not.

    From http://forums.thoughtsmedia.com/f8/x...uts-86695.html

    Many of you know that I have dialup shared across my network. Someone on the boards here was amazed when i mentioned that Xbox Live works on it, but then I kinda dissapointed him by saying i only used the marketplace and text messages, never games or voice chatting.

    The other day a friend invited me to a voice chat, so i was like "What the heck, I'll try it."

    Bear in mind that my connection runs at 21.6kbps on average.

    Voice chat worked nearly perfectly. I'm not kidding!

    I waited in line for 30 minutes at wally world and got my copy of halo 3 at about 12:15 AM. Tonight, I decided to try a game on Xbox Live.

    It got to matchmaking. It eventually connected to a game with 4 people. It loaded the game, paused... and worked! Sometimes it would stick me backwards a few steps, and grenades acted a little funky, but I got 13 kills before the leader scored the final 25th point. I might have done better, but my controller kept dying.

    I just thought I'd post this up, since it is pretty bizarre if you ask me.

    According to Bungie's "Router 7.0" video, they designed Halo 3 to be playable on dial-up. It was even listed on their acceptable types of internet, although it was at the bottom. Pretty cool.

    Halo 1 for PC wouldn't run at all, ever.

    Umm.... *Cough* Already on main site page *Cough*

    Back when Xbox1 was all-the-rage, I used dial-up for LIVE all the time. There was no broadband in my area! @_@

    The vast majority of online 360 titles will perform perfectly on dial-up. If one has ISDN, that will do for all games.

    Well looks like I've been missing out hanging out here on single player...lol

    Time to kick tail on halo three *big evil grin*

    Of course even with ISDN, my dl speeds max at 5 kbps. Think I'd lag too much with that?
