SubjectXBox 360 questions new Reply to this message

Just got an old 360. It had the RROD and after fixing it decided to keep it. It doesn't have an HD. I am looking into getting one. Have a few questions:

Is there any reason to get a big drive like 120gb over say the 20gb? Isn't it just for saving games and caching content?

Also, Can I rip the games to the HD like the Xbox 1?

Lastly, is there a way to install the nexflix app without Live Gold?

The 20gb is long gone, now there's either on board memory (256mb or 512mb) or 120gb hd. There will be a 250gb hd packed with limited edition consoles (forza 3 and modern warfare 2). If you're lucky, you might find a 60gb pro. It's used for saving games yeah but not for cache unfortunately. So you can download more stuff and...

Now that's the reason why I switched my 20gb hd for a 120gb. Yes, now you can install games on the hd. However, you still need the game's dvd in the drive so it can verify that you really have it, not just rent it and install it you know. Faster loading times, dvd drive not spinning anymore, it's much much quieter.

No I don't think so but I'm not 100% sure.

Yeah, it's for game saves - but I got a 20gb, and I'm regretting not going bigger when I had the money. I'm constantly swapping out files to make room for DLC. I'm kind of an XBLA whore, so I tend to buy a lot of the little games - I guess if you can stay away from that, 20gb will suit you fine. I just didn't realize how much decent stuff is available on the Arcade.

Yup. Some games recommend you DON'T - Halo 3 for instance - but again, you'll need a bigger HD for this, obviously. I'd love to store SFIV on the HD, but I guarantee I won't have room for much else after that....

this is fresh news that answers your question

>> From xboxlive.ign.com:
[QUOTE]
The announcement that video streaming service Netflix would be headed to PlayStation 3 next month left many wondering if Microsoft would respond by dropping the Xbox Live Gold membership requirement to use the service on the Xbox 360.

That answer, as of today, is no.

A company spokesperson reiterated to IGN the value of Xbox Live Gold status, saying it's online experience is still "a generation ahead of the competition" despite a yearly subscription cost.

No surprise there as the MS kids are fucking douchebags. They still find it appropriate to grease stupid people for $50/yr with their ad packed dashboard and the rest. PS3 while not as far as along (due to the years XBL got to develop last gen) it's getting damn close in quality, and free.

Now you have the netflix deal which has me laughin my ass off as I have a pS3. Michael Pachter, that weird analyst says that MS has that asshole exclusivity crap with netflix, but he thinks they got around it because the deal was for it to be on system (ie: dashboard) for X time, and netflix is backstabbing them (ha ha) by going the route of a boot disk. Can't wait to get my free one so I can run stuff on the PS3 on my LCD and 5.1 setup.

I have the 360 but having netflix on my TV rocks my cox0rs. I watch streaming stuff in HD all the time with it. Regardless of the console wars, it just ends up being an awesome service. Definitely enjoy that, my friend.
