Is There Xbox Live In Nigeria?

Someone I know in the states claims he played someone in Nigeria on xbox live and the connection was robust at that.

I'm highly doubtful cos as far as i know, microsoft havent set up shop here, and if there's been some sort of makeshift arrangement how come it hasnt generated enough buzz amongst the gaming community.

so, anyone?,

Hey Folks , just thought I should give you this info, If you live in Lagos and you are looking for a suitable ISP for online gaming, Go For Swift broadband 4G, their service bust of 2mb/s and averagely between 1.2/1.5 mbs. I own a PS3 and I have been using it online since connecting to swift 4g, I play FIFA 11, Tekken, and COD black ops without lags, infact its going to play most games without lag. Video streaming is excellent., Just thought I let you guys know.

N.B.

my PSN id is kengeorgewest or kenosas1

well for guys that don't have xbox live, there is an alternative to get online. you can use a software called xbconnect to get your original xbox or xbox360 online via system link enabled games.  Easy to use and very easy to setup. Google it or get tutorials from youtube.

Still play halo 2 online which is real fun and still have pretty healthy number of people online. You can host games and let friends join or you can join other game hosts.

The software is free.

I can technically play on Xbox live using IPNX and MTN 3G but the problem is too much lag with both. With the MTN there is also the problem of the NAT type being set to moderate which basically means that you will not be able to communicate with some people or even play with them. I don't think IPNX has this problem but I am not sure.

Anyway i'll try to be there on that day if football is not on the agender

I have seen a few people on-line, but not more than one or two at a time. I want to organise an on-line meeting of all the Nairaland members on Xbox Live(or any Nigerian gamer you know). I was thinking this Sunday, the 21st of November at 9pm. We can setup a Nairaland party, and everyone can break up into whatever games they have in common.

First and foremost! the whole topic of how to play games online in Nigeria is a sh*tty a** question which should have never been brought up, having connections problems? now that makes sense. Common sense helped me go online and Gainer gamer recognition, don't belive me? check out infinityward.com & bungie.net my gamertag is P I Q I 555. If u know these companies,you r probably on my track. Cutting things short i would say if you are smart enough to get your laptop or desktop online you should be smart enough to get your xbox online,just finding the right ISP should be ur next move. By the way i checked most of your gamertags your profiles were bulls**t.

I've been the one most in dought abt xboxlive working in naija but i can now tell u dat i've been playing halo 3 on live for a while now (@IKEJA).

with no lag at all, yet my average speed is 400kb per sec and 1mb around 4 to 6AM, even when it's on a 100kb it still plays without any lag.

the main problem hopeful gamers might encounter is the nat type.Ur ability to find and hook up to other players and play games depend

entirely on ur nat type if u got a strict nat like i used to, u would hardly be able to play, but moderate or open nat is operatable .

u still need a fast internet connection though but not 1 or 2 mb per sec 400kb is moderate.

McBrave, what ISP do you use and what speed are you getting. I am looking at broadband for my home not just for xbox live but I play PS3 and PC games too. I live in PH and will appreciate the info because i don't want to be disappointed after i have secured the connection to find out it not giving me what i expect.

Hey, There is xbox live in nigeria. I am a frequent gamer on live, I made friends all around the globe and even met some populer folks on live. I got a gamertag, which is Brave GTX and also my buddy got one which is unexpectedbrave. About the broadband issue, I think is all over Nigeria, It's just that the folks out there can't afford it becouse of the cost. I stay in Port Harcourt and I game online 247. XBOX 360 YOU ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKK!

@ Mr BlacKiD

PLs could u tell me hw u got ur xboxlive to run on glo. I assume you are talking about the Glo 3g service and u used ur phone/pda as a modem.

Is that how you got it to work ? Also did the game play run smoothly. did you notice any latency ? Lastly, how were you charged by glo. Was is per minute or per bytes/kilobytes used ? I have an xbox and the only time i got toplay on xbow live was when i connected via my paltops internet connection that was running on starcomms Evdo service. It was crappy to say the least. Iplayed Halo 2 and the experience was terrible. I got killed more times than i could respawn. Lol. Please i/we gamers need this info cuz it'll help build the nigerian community on xboxlive and i'm sure i'm not the only one who thinks that will be a blast.

Yup, I have a one month gold membership. If i am not mistaken, everytime you go online with a 360 for the first time you get one month free. I had another gamertag, but decided to make a new one for the free membership.

Was able to go live and play online with the 360 using Glo. Only played Aegis Wing and there was no lag. I could hear them, they could hear me. Will have Gears of War sometime this week and will let y'all know how it goes.

My gamertag is "jdossy" for any one on live in naija or otherwise

yah thas why i recommend 2mbits a sec cos of latency. you can get by with 600kbs but you will suffer response time lags. its not download/upload stream, its the link speed that needs to be high. so if you can, get 2mbps, at least 1mbps, fine and dandy. mtn 3g is approaching 2mbps. of course all these are subject to actual verification cos some peolple claim to get by with link speeds of 300kbps! me, i dont think so.

@c-jay

yup, but i cant go live cos i dont have broadband. you need at least 2megabits/sec to play online. all ive done is to hook it up via my mates 360 and we play gears of war co-op via 2 screens. very sweet. oh, and i stream media to my tv via media center and zune. sadly no xbox live.

In South Africa, they are playing on live with MTN's 3g service. I have not tried it yet with Glo, but once i pick up my 360 i will. They say the real problem is upload speed and latency not download speed.
