This is probably a completeley stupid question and probably wont work.

But, if I used a crossover cable to link my Laptop to my friends Xbox would we be able to play multiplayer games?

Not a stupid question.

The Xbox has a standard RJ45 port so I can see where you are getting the idea but no I don't believe you can connect a PC to an Xbox.

The Xbox is more modifiable than many consoles and I believe that you can even install Linux on it. In that case you probably could connect the two together.

but it is my friends xbox and i doubt he will want linux put on it.
