GTA4 LAN Party - May 3

Postby Overload on Fri Apr 18, 2008 9:54 am

Okay ladies and gentlemen! The time has come to schedule a LAN party of the strangest type:

Xbox 360 LAN Party
When: May 3rd, 2pm
Where: Greg and Sean's apartment

Grand Theft Auto 4 releases April 29th. As you have no doubt read, the multiplayer is going to be the most amazing thing since sliced bread.

The purpose of this LAN party is to get together with our Xbox 360s to do some serious multiplayerin'. We've never done a 360 LAN before so this will double as an experiment to see how fun it is. I know at the very least 3 of us will have 360s to do this, but maybe there are more I don't know about!

GTA4 is one person per console by the way. So just like a normal LAN party, you've gotta have the equipment if you want to play. Of course, you could still come over and hang out and play when people want to take breaks!

What to bring
  • Your Xbox 360
  • 360 Power Brick (it's so big it gets its own entry)
  • Your controller
  • Your Xbox Live Headset
  • Your computer monitor
Let me know if your monitor supports DVI and if you have HDMI on your 360. If you have both of those you can use an HDMI->DVI cable to plug your 360 in to your monitor. I plan on ordering a few of these from Monoprice (they are dirt cheap) so I'll get extras for anyone that needs one. If you are missing either of those (DVI or HDMI), then you'll need a 360 VGA cable which I can get my hands on for you if you give me enough warning.

So reply here and tell me if you'll be coming and which cable you need!

I'll be there (but cannot stay very late), and I need a VGA cable.

Also, we may need creative solutions for X360->headphones output. I'm just going to bring my mixer, but I'm guessing we don't all have pre-amps lying around to take a line-level output to our headphones!

I could also provide the following to use as ghetto pre-amps:
3x laptops
another mixer
old stereo receiver

Let me know if you want me to bring one for ya!

By the way Dan's monitor will serve as his pre-amp so looks like we're set.
