    Its not Xbox Live though, its just some crappy server browser for games that support system link. It wont be anything like live.

    that's where the ''partial'' word comes in, you can link matches between a fairly ammount of players without need to pay, for me, it's all i want from live, so this saves me money.

    It's not "Partial free xbox live" though. Xbox Live is a microsoft service. This is a tunneling system and is entirely seperate from Xbox live in every possible way. Xlink Kai has been around for years but if you're looking for online gaming, just pay for xbox live or get a PS3.

    Sorry, I also thought it would be more than what it really is when I saw the video on TrickLife.

    I didn't watch the video but I guess you're talking about the old XBox? I think Kai should be good enough, don't think old xbox games have as many people online as 360 games.

    Well, I have Silver status atm (Going out to buy 1 year gold this weekend) but never turned to consider Kai. If you burn 2 fewer games a month, or buy 1 fewer game a year, you can afford gold live =/

    Yeah, if you buy the yearly subscription it's only like $5 a month. Works out to around a single game anyway. Even though PS3 is free, with what XBOX LIVE offers you I'm much happier to pay.

    My opinion of general xbox live users is fairly low even by most cynics standards, xlink kai is a minor technical hurdle which seems to stop most in their tracks.

    Of course I have seen several xbox live threads around here so that can be sorted that way I guess.
