This tutorial is aimed at all Xbox 360 users who would like to choose a unique name for their Xbox 360 console to show off to their friends. Read below to find out how you can use an Easter Egg to allow you one opportunity to permanently change the name of your Xbox 360 console.

This tutorial requires that you can get your hands on a copy of the Xbox 360 game “Dead Or Alive 3” for long enough to complete a task.


In case you do not understand what I mean exactly, by the term “How to change the name of your Xbox 360 console”, I will explain it to you. The term refers to the name of your Xbox 360 console shown online (not your Live ID but your name). This “name” will appear as your console name in games such as Halo. By changing this from the default serial-like name, you will stand out from the crowd and have a great bragging right over your buddies!


Now, I will continue my tutorial assuming you have acquired a copy of the game “Dead Or Alive 3”. The first thing you must do is power on your console and insert the “Dead Or Alive 3” game disc into the console.


Once you have inserted the disc, boot up the game. If you are new to this game, then it is recommended that you read a separate walkthrough, off a game site for instance. Once you have booted up the game, you must play “challenge mode” until you have completed the entire “challenge mode”.


When you complete “challenge” mode, you will be prompted to enter a name. Once you enter the desired name, the name of your Xbox 360 console will now be named according to what you entered in the “Record” box.


So, once you have entered the desired name into the box you are prompted with at the end of “challenge” mode and hit accept, your Xbox 360 console will now bee seen in games like Halo as the new name you have given your console.


If you would like to view your console’s new name then load up Halo and enter the “Multiplayer” mode. Once you have entered the “Multiplayer” mode, you must select “Split Screen” and then the appropriate “Profile” and “Location” settings. After you have selected the appropriate options, you will be presented with a screen saying “Waiting for more players”, just as you usually would. Now you will notice that there is a picture of your Xbox 360 console above your profile name, above the picture of your console will be a word. This word will be used from now on, every time your Xbox 360 console goes online.


Note: This may not always work, it depends entirely on the model of your console as well as many other factors. So if it does not work for you don’t worry, you are just unlucky. Good Luck.

That’s it! You now have something to brad to your buddies about and to show off the next time you play online with certain games Enjoy your newfound Xbox modification knowledge.
