XBox 360, 4GB

I dont have a lot of experience with Xbox, PS, or other consuls.

Thinking of getting the 360, 4GB for my 7-year old. How big of a factor will the 4GB system be vs. systems with more memory?

Tks

If you're set on buying a 360 you're going to want more storage space than 4 GB. Games need patches, saves, downloaded content, and there are fully downloadable games as well.

Out of curiosity, though, why the 360?

My son played it at a friends house, and said he enjoyed it. We already have a PS3. He wont be downloading any content.

You'll eventually need a bigger hard drive. Go ahead and get a bigger hdd now.

I would do a little more research on what games he might want and their requirements but if you don't plan on doing anything downloadable, 4 GB will probably be fine.

Worse comes to worse, you can hook up an external drive as well down the road.

Get the big one, you don't really get all 4 gigs anyway.

Whether he downloads games or not, most games have updates and patches and he will constantly have to delete stuff to make room. It's a pain in the ass.

Once the One drops, 360 bundles will be dirt cheap and you could probably get a 250 G plus two games for $300.

Buy the 4G. Then buy a 16GB flash drive for cheap.

Don't buy the big HDD. It is a waste of money.

Its a 7 year old. 20 GB is plenty.

I survived for along time with nothing but a memory card at launch.

This is much different than the HDD being a waste of money.

Well, the simple fact that you said not to buy the big HDD because it is a waste of money is just a complete farce.
