Yes, you can connect an xbox to a PC. You need an internet connection to play online games and you can do this via a router or using the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) facility of a PC.

If the xbox is chipped you can then also transfer files to/from the xbox and use it to play movies or music that are stored on the PC too.

If you want more information on what can be done with an xbox, check out this site:

I don't know how Microsoft can suggest the Xbox is not for use with PC's since they make the Xbox and supply the software that runs most PC's.
This is the clincher click here

I saw it for myself today at friends, it does but its a XBOX LIVE, they also say at certain times of the day the connection using BT Bband with USB Modem drops the connection night being worse.

Aparently the kid plays the thing nearly all day as he's off school.
