    Are there any games that take advantage of the built in ethernet adapter on the X-Box?

    Is it at all possible to just buy the "breakout box" like in the Advanced AV Pack without the cables?

    What are some good action games that are unique to the X-Box? I only have Halo right now.

    TIA,
    Arthur

    I just got Jet Set Radio Future ($37.99 this week at Circuit City). Very pretty (Jet Set is the ULTIMATE in cel-shading in my book), easy to learn, challenging at times... but FUN! [​IMG]

    Good action games?

    Jet Set Radio Future and Hunter: The Reckoning are available right now. Enclave and Buffy should be available soon.

    Tony Hawk 2x, Tony Hawk 3, Halo, and a few other games support the Xbox system link (which allows you to use the ethernet port to connect directly to other Xboxes, and if you have broadband internet and a PC, you can use Gamespy's Xbox Tunnel or XboxConnect to play the games online). Full on-line support is due at the end of the summer.

    You can't buy the breakout boxes (Advanced AV or High Definition AV) without the cables; however, the boxes are pretty cheap (not including the cables wouldn't cost much), and you can use whatever cables you want; you're not stuck with the included cables.
