Now that xbox one is out, im sure 360s will become alot cheaper. Looking to buy one but i was wondering if AFers can help me out. Is 4gb enough hd capacity? or should i buy a 360 with 250gb hd?? i am not going to download any extra content from the online marketplace. Just want to make sure i’ll be able to save games and play with my buddies online…
4 GB is likely not enough, and I am surprised that you can even buy an XBox 360 with such small capacity. If you full install a big game on your XBox, that already takes up 2-3 GB. If the price difference is not large, you should get more storage.
Bigger question is why get the old XBox at all, but presumably you have your reasons for that.
No, 4 GB isn’t enough for something like COD, GTA, or Skyrim. GTA takes up about 8 GB by itself. Something like Forza would probably fill up 4 GB by itself. On the other hand, 250 GB is way too much unless you’re really planning on catching up on a lot of games. Go with the 50 GB hard drive.
As to why still get the 360 - XB1 isn’t backwards compatable and there are some great games for the 360 you can pick up cheaply now - Red Dead Redemption would be a good place to start. The 360 still has legs.
Yeah, and even more amazing was three years later Rockstar was able to build a map three times that size for GTA on the same system. It’s crazy how much more horsepower developers can get out of the same system after working with it for 7-8 years.
I feel sorry for that guy if he just got a girl pregs and does not have the $100 or whatever that you paid him for the XBox.
In other news, apparently, some guy who used to work in my office was trying to borrow $1000 to use in Vegas. I found it interesting that he didn’t have $1000 in cash given how much he was paid. Presumably, his money was all locked into investment vehicles or committed to charitable contributions (?).
