it is really too bad Capcom took out the sever for the expansion pack.


You've got to be kidding me! I just bought the expansion about 6 months ago but haven't gotten online yet since my original Xbox "incapable" and was waiting till I could find a new original Xbox.

:cry:

Can anyone verify the current GC price? I've seen that box set at 2 GCs and have a lot of credit to burn up. It was marked at $200 and I didn't ask for a price check.

I still have mine sealed in a factory Capcom shipping box. One day i'm gonna pop that bitch open. Wish online didn't die though they should make it 360 compatible. I'm still looking for the guide though so if anyone has one for sale PM me.


This game will never make the 360 backcompat list - it would require M$ to make an adapter that would make XBox controllers 360 compatible. It's a shame too, I really like the game.

I think that you can still play this game online/Live.

Capcom shut down the servers for this, but that was only related to the "campaign" mode where players would fight battles in an ongoing simulated war which would be re-set every so often.

If you get Line of Contact, you should still be able to play head-to-head games online; they just won't be part of a larger developing meta-game.

I'm planning on eventually picking up several original XBOX consoles and using System Link to hook them together so we (as a family) can play some of the cool games that support System Link gameplay. And, even if I eventually do this, I doubt there would ever be a chance to run across that many Steel Battalion setups...lol. :}~~~


I have 3 Steel Battalion + controller sets sacked away just for this purpose. 2 of them even have their original cardboard ammo box and all packaging :)

I bet I know what store you bought it from. I passed on it when I saw it at 50.00. Just didn't know what I would do with it.

IIRC, they shut down the servers for the online game. That means, you are almost guaranteed to be playing with yourself.

I'd probably pick one up if I could get it for $50. I've never been a mech fan myself, especially if they are slow going. (And they are.)


what ever happened to XBconnect?

did that site finally shut down?

That is unfortunate to hear. I would have bought this game years ago if it weren't for the $200 price tag.

Confirmed that SB is $89.99 used at GameCrazy and amazingly still $199.99 new. I guess the used units at my local GC stores were considered 'open but new'. Meh.

If someone can snag a copy locally, let me know. I'd gladly pay the $100 plus shipping. nd for your trouble, I may chuck in a game or two.

Wow, I'd pick that up if my store had it! (But I have $100s in EB-Credit :-( )

The only thing deterring me from buying that thing is it's shipping cost.
