System Link for all games that don't rely on cloud compute
LAN gaming is a big part of the Xbox's heritage and all games that don't rely on cloud compute should have support for system link by default.
The ability to co-op and or splitscreen with 2 tv's without internet or computers. Maybe by wire/cable or even better 2 usb devices that transfer signal, or any other way possible thats easy and there wont be much lag for other person on second tv
You have it for Xbox 360... NOW.. incorporate it with the Xbox One.
I want the ability to play any game on my Xbox One with two or more people with two or more INDIVIDUAL screens.. One Xbox with multiple screen capability. Split screen is understandably generic way to play multiplayer but to have multiple screens in the same room... especially with an awesome console like XBOX ONE... I love it.. ("You did good donkey.. you did good".... Shrek)
I would suggest the option of creating an internal network, so two or more Xbox One can play together without internet. Sometimes I have internet problems and I own two Xbox One, and I wish could play with my wife or friends without internet.
My internet isn't the best, quite often. And I'm sure many people have the same issue. Please bring back System Linking. Makes gaming together so much easier at times.
How about lets bring back System Link for games that are already online multiplayer like the Call Of Duty or Halo series.
I'd like to be able to use my console in a totally OFFLINE mode and be able to have a LAN party where there may be no internet access.
I still thoroughtly enjoy this with my original Xbox and my Xbox 360's.
can add the ability to have system link for xbox one as it would be awesome for Lan parties so you don't have to use internet connection to play
to physically connect 2 or more Xbox one's together for LAN multiplayer
Implement and encourage the ability within developing games to allow Link and Share games. In similar fashion to the download and play over wifi on the DS platforms. System link is a fundamental core to Xbox gaming from its beginnings. The ability to share the game or a portion of a game with other users who are connected over a local network, would in my full opinion not only sell consoles but also bring players together for shared experiences that only come from being in person. An added benefit to developers to implement the stated feature, is sharing only part of their masterpieces but having the ability to get the game into hands of many to taste it. Once connection to the host console with actual copy of game is lost the game would cease being playable on other consoles.
We need System Link for Minecraft.
This Game is not just an Online Game.
Lan Parties should not be Dead.
We want this please and dont forget Lan Party Games !!!
My friends and i enjoyed getting together and system linking our 360's. Can we have this option added to xbox one please
Please add more system link modes for many games
So many games are missing this like minecraft
Please enable system link capabilities on xbox one.
Since Halo's first release my friends and I have brought our Xboxs to each others homes and played system link. It's such a big part of our social gaming experience, we do it nearly every weekend! We're big kids at heart you could say!
So please, seriously consider it as it would be a major disappointment if its not implemented for the new Halo releases!

Starting off I agree the importance of system link. Although I have another suggestion. Microsoft create an app for the Xbox One that would turn the console into a dedicated server over a local (wired if neccesary) network. As such any cloud computing game could handshake with xbox live to verify rights/ownership then connect to the localized cloud server aka spare console to host what the game would see as its own dedicated server seperate from all others not on lan. I would gladly have an extra console as a server if gameplay didn't rely on excellent internet for a room of friends to play together on multiple consoles. This would also ease the actual servers strain and sell more consoles. I am aware it isn't as simple as a one app to cure them all. But give developers the ability to create a companion app to do exactly that and lan gaming could then live once more.(unless it is that easy in which case get on that)
Sorry... just realized what I suggested are two totally different ways of doing what I want... lol..
I don't want to have to use two or more Xbox's to do a "System Link".. I want the ability to use ONE console and multiple TV's... System link is designed to use multiple consoles for the same purpose. I think we are beyond to whole, "I'm Microsoft and we need to make more and more money.." Instead, let's do the right thing. I know "your" main drive is to make money but haven't you made enough yet?? Let's take care of "our" needs/wants without saying to yourselves "How would this make us more money" or "How can we change this to benefit us too.." ideas. I'm all about making AND saving money but I don't think this will "harm" you in any such way.
You really should put this back for Halo:TMCC, it is what we want!
I completely agree, taking the system link feature away from the Master Chief Collection was a big mistake. A lot of fans and the game itself have a lot of heritage with system link and a lot of people still do bring there consoles over to friends and play Halo. (I still do) Therefore I am severely disappointed and hope to see an update or something similar to see to this sad scenario.
Yes, most definitely!
Please add System Link to the Xbox One.
The Master Chief Collection is already out and the fact I can't do system link with friends is very, very disappointing.
System Link is a must. Someone (MS or developers) doesn't understand latency and wide-area networks.
Also I may not understand grammar...

Without System Link games are restricted from growing in regions where people cannot obtain internet. Thus losing popularity in both games and the console itself. Without it, it seems like we are taking a step back in gaming technology. I got into Xbox live to widen my gaming competitively not to replace from playing with my friends locally or in a LAN tournament. doing it on Xbox live with its complexity and non-reliable functions is not the same.
We need more games that support system link, holding fair and standardised tournaments can only be done through system link games due to laggy and variable online connections. Not everyone lives in countries with super fast fibre optic connections, and even if you did you still get some lag. Also gaming lounge businesses are growing due to the growth of the gaming industry, but without system link gaming lounges will die out.
The Xbox One DOES have system link. It's up to the developers to include it, not Microsoft.

THE XBOX ONE HAS SYSTEM LINK. COD GHOSTS ON XBOX ONE HAS SYSTEM LINK. It's up to the devs to include that feature
please add LAN I want to be able to see the The Master Chief Collection at high level of competition like UGC or MLG.
I agree with others. The Master Chief Collection is going to have 4 games where system Link was built in.
Your last two consoles had system link! Please add this basic functionality!
You can't release the Halo: Master Chief Collection and not have a System Link functionality. It's the main reason we're buying your console!
Please add this! I live in a rural area with very poor internet, system link has been so much fun in the past with the 360!
System link has been part of Xbox forever!
Not all people have high speed internet to be able play multiplayer. System link enabled us to enjoy xbox. We loved Vegas 2 system linking. It's more fun and more stable to play system link vs online. Plus we shouldn't have to pay to play with our friends at the same house even if we have internet
Strongly Agree!!! Although these games are said to run on the same engine so system link should not be a problem, I am curious how and if they will adapt halo 1 the original version to do xbox live as the original halo did not support it (although some hardcore fans such as myself went through a service called xbox connect to play games online with other players fooling our xboxes to think we were system linking)

I work overseas and the only way we can play here is via system link. Those games that don't offer it rarely get played. Some of the newer ones that do offer it have stripped down achievements and fully unlocked equipment (Yes, Im talking to you COD:Ghosts!) which takes away from the replay value. There should be no difference between system link and online play, other than keeping the two separate.
