Hey everyone, had a look round google to see if there was a way of playing xbox 360 games on a laptop and from what I found it's possible using a VGA cable is this true?

If this is true does the laptop your using matter overly, I'm using an acer 6935G with 2Ghz dual core and 4GB ram and 512mb graphics.

Too anyone asking I won't be playing online and don't have a tv at the moment, mainly through living in halls, the internet is shocking and having a tv requires a tv license which I don't fancy paying.

Thanks to anyone who has the answers.

using just a VGA cable, links suggest the answer is no,you may need to buy third party equipment for it to work...

I think you will find it cannot be done , at least not easily. Maybe there is a hack or something, or an emulator.
But what would be the point of an xbox if you could play the games on a laptop.
Get yourself a 19" monitor which will solve your problem plus there cheap enough these days.
