    I am looking into getting a modded 360 but I am wondering how big the games get. Hope I am not asking anything against the rules but here is my question.

    How big is a 360 iso or whatever you call them if you download them? What is the least expected size?

    Asking this because I have a psp and those isos get around to 1.50 GB and if xbox's games are way bigger than that then I can't commit to it. My internet provider would charge me like crazy.

    It varies from 5 to 7 Giga Byte.
    Some games however have multiple disc. Final Fantasy 13 for example is 22GB.

    How do you all download these games? 22 is ridiculous.

    they're not that big if using usenet. I could download final fantasy xiii in about four or five hours, and my internet speed is about average.

    not necessarily faster...but u get full speed the entire time, u don't have to upload, and u have much better protection with ssl encryption. the retention for several newsgroup providers is over 1000 days. it's not too often u see a torrent that old that's still alive.

    Its not torrents.
    You will get consistent speed, and as godreborn said the files wont deleted or removed for a certain amount of time.

    If you have high speed broadband (20+MB), torrent really does the job just fine.

    Exactly. That is why you got to be prepared if you decide to take this route.
