Hey there Beatbox!

Depending on the game you want to play, you can always just play over Xbox Live. Assuming that your router can support multiple consoles (many routers cannot), you don't need to connect the consoles via ethernet cable if you just play over Xbox Live in the same room.

However, if your router cannot support multiple consoles and/or you don't want to play over Xbox Live, then you will need an ethernet cable to system link your consoles.

I hope that helps clear things up. Let us know if you have any more questions. =)

Thanks, but what I,ll probably do is just a system link. i have an ethernet cable but i have a few questions. The system link game is COD BLOPS 2. How much players on a screen on system link split screen? Does all the consoles need LIVE gold to play? Does the profiles playing need LIVE gold too? How many players can be a guest to the main profile?

Oops, forgot. My friend has all the maps for black ops 2 but i dont. I Know you are supposed to have the same maps but can he just delete the maps off his hard drive so we can play the game?

If you both have the latest updates you don't need the same maps.

I'm pretty sure you don't need XBL Gold at all to system link. When it comes to black ops 2 I think you can only have 2 players per console. Also make sure you're using an ethernet crossover cable to connect the two consoles. This guide should help you setup the consoles: support.xbox.com/.../connect-system-link-play

Look at the ends of the cable if the small wires inside are in a different order it's a crossover cable.
