How come theres not more people using XBSlink to playonline at the mo?
How come theres not more people using XBSlink to playonline at the mo? –
Showed a friend the other day whos got serious black ops cold turkey my ps3 using XBSlink to play it online.
Now my ps3 is on keamw cfw and hes on 3.60 but I sent him off with instructions on how to set it up. As far as i know you dont need any kind of jailbreak for it to work on your ps3 just a pc.
I havnt heard back from him yet but its not really that hard to set up is it?
So with psn down for approaching a month how come when i try XBSlink theres only like 14 people on black ops ps3?
Its a shame really as i seem to get better pings playing it than when psn was working lol
for some reason people avoid xbslink and xlink like the plague
its a shame. Although i did have to hunt around for the instructions on how to set it up maybe that puts people off but still i was suprised to see so few on there considering how many 'users online' this site is sometimes showing!!
yep i know it's kind of one of those questions like what was here before the big bang the world just may never know haha.
Kai was incorporated into the original xbox media centre and loads more people used it. If someone ported Kai or xbslink onto the ps3 as homebrew I'm sure it would get the same kind of attention and would be used as an alternative to PSN. The ps3 can already use cloud features like xbslink so it is possible to make a price of homebrew to link machines for LAN gaming, we will just have to wait until someone takes the initiative to do so.
I did start a project to do just this but have been tied up in other work, if anyone wants to make there own I can point them in the right direction but they will have to puzzle it all together using c++ and using the ps3 includes that are all readily available from the ps3 wiki including the networking includes commands using psl1ght to compile it all when complete.
i been missing my black ops online too, is their really any point in setting up xlink or xbslink though because i have only ever seen negative feedback from people.
will i be able to go on and play for a couple of hours uniterupted or will it be slow and always waiting for other players and which of the two (if any) is the best ie most players, most reliable?
Why I don't use XBSlink...

I would try it out but unfortunately, my router is all the way down the hall and I don't know how I would connect my PS3 with the cable. But as soon as they update their program to support Wifi or I figure out how to connect the PS3, I'll be on.
-Also, we should choose one service to use instead of both. That way, we will all be playing together instead of being spread across Xlink Kai and XbSlink. So which one is it?
I could be wrong, but I'm not sure a lot of people using ofw know about either one, honestly, though that doesn't seem to have made much difference in the OP's friend's case. And it sounds like you all are mostly talking about black ops, but another big reason a lot of people (such as myself) aren't interested is because both services only work for LAN games, which on the ps3 is only a handful. I'd want to play fighting games (mk, street fighter, tekken), gt5, re5, and killzone 3 online, just to name a few off the top of head. None of these are LAN games.

I finally figured out how to set it up today(xlink kai), and played for a couple of hours straight. I created my own room, and i must admit it was pretty good. definitely not as good as Psn, but something to keep me busy, i was playing mw2 and black ops. I would recommend it to anybody, FYI, you need the version prior to the last one. The current version doesn't support ps3.
