    ok my bro is at the shop and is going to buy me either the xbox 360 20gb or 120gb.
    does he need to shelve out the extra money for the extra space?
    i will only be playing games and will never ever store movies or music on it.

    also can't i just buy and external HD for it later?
    i heard the PS3 actually needs games to be installed to it. is this true for the xbox 360? if so will that limit the number of games i can play at a time?

    The elite is way more expensive than the 20GB model but the 20gb should have been phased out.
    You can connect external HD's but it will only be read only, you wont be able to store anything on it from the 360.
    The 360 does have an option to install games but you don't need to do it.

    Mostly wrong, when the new update comes in the next few days you will have the option to instal any game to the HDD to improve read times etc and rumour is you will be able to store media also on the hdd when the update happens.

    But we will see.

    There is no such thing as a universal xbox, unless you can find an ancient one with old kernel, then use infectus to have two different kernels on it.

    In short it's highly unlikely you will get a universal xbox.

    actually you're kinda right. i won't be able to buy regular games from shops for it. i'll only be able to download free ones [​IMG] . so i guess it's still kinda universal.

    And even then not all games are region-free.
