XBOX Questions

This is a totally old question and I'm sure I remember a thread talking about this way back when the XBOX was new....but I couldn't find it in the search.

Well In HALO split screen options....My XBOX icon at the top left corner has a name. My XBOX name is HOWARD. Kinda ironic because that's my dad's name. Funny stuff


Well anyway here are my questions:

1. ) Why the name?
2.) Can you change the name?
3.) This question deals with HALO- Can you have bots in the multi player mode?


Thanks! I'm new to the XBOX community! Just got one a few weeks back. I love it! It looks nice next to my DVD, and Receiver!


Thanks all!

ripped from boxcheats.com

Each Xbox console has a "name" assigned to it at the time of manufacture. To view the name of your system, play Halo and link it to another Xbox and choose a linked play party. The Xboxs will have names above their symbols in the pre-game stat screen. To change your name, play challenge mode in Dead Or Alive 3. Successfully complete challenge mode and you will be prompted to enter a record name. Enter the name that you wish to change your pre-assigned Xbox name to. This will now be the title your Xbox is referred to during linked play. Note: This will only work one time, so be sure that you enter the name you wish to permanently have for your console. To see your Xbox name easily, start Halo, go into multi-player mode, choose "Split Screen", "Profile", and "Location". After all that is done, there will be a screen that reads "Waiting for more players". The picture of the Xbox is directly above your profile name, and above your picture will be a word. That word will be used as your name when XBox goes online. This works best when there is only one controller plugged into the Xbox, so the multi-player game will not start before you see your name.

After nearly a year, I finally checked out my Xbox's name. And it's aparrently 'Deathbringers'.

My DC is the closest console in proximity to him, and it's now quivering with fear.

Heh.. Death Bringer would be a cool name, but I checked mine last night and its Paul.

Heh.. which is pretty cool, considering my name is Paul

Nope.. I have DOA3, but haven't beat the game yet.

I've been playing Halo 99% of the time on my xbox.

Plus, I'd have picked a cooler name for my xbox then my real name..
