    Had 2xXboxen + 2x65" going last night and after a few hours of Halo, we wanted to try Crimson Skies. It looks like you can only have two people play on one Xbox for system link. This doesn't make sense since you can have 4 people on Live. Am I missing something?

    No, that is the limit. You can play 2 player per box on xbox live/system link, but 4 player on ONE xbox (no link).

    I don't like on system link that you can't have custom names. It is harder to tell who you are killing. Player one is always nathan, 2 is betsy, 3 is maria etc. I don't like that you get "kicked" out after every game instead of just staying connected. You have to find the host after everygame.

    Can you have custom names for live? Does it boot you out after every game like the system link does? I'd hope live does a better job than system link. I've been playing a bit of xbox connect this way.
