    most of us have at least a 30 gig hard disk. so what can we do with it?

    ripping cd's is slow. no ones going to pay and download moives on it (at least not most people).
    and we burn games to cd's.

    i find it easier to just download a whole game instead of just the demo.

    fall out 3? the whole game or just the demo on the hd?

    I have a 20 gig hdd, use some space for demos, and I can install 2 games usually. Right now that's Beautiful Katamari and Fallout 3. Quicker loading is a minor convenience, NO DRIVE NOISE is the main reason for installing the games. IMO, the best new feature of NXE. Anything else, like music and movies, is streamed over network or loaded from a disc.

    I got a 120GB hard drive as an early Christmas present from a friend of mine. I use it mostly for game demos and installs. I can fit all of my games on it easily. It really cuts down on loading times on games like Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts.

    There is no such thing as a 30GB hard drive.

    There is only 20GB, 60GB and 120GB

    Meh screw divx. Microsoft needs to hurry up and give mkv support [​IMG]. As for my hdd , I have the 20GB and only really use it for saves and the odd game install. At the moment , no games , just saves.
