A problem? Nah, more like an option. Its funny, I just got through writing another comment on this in another article. Its almost eerie...hmmmmm...

In fact, it's even advisable IMHO.

Less wear and tear on the disc drive, discs themselves, and less heat production = probably better life of the console (perhaps more a concern for older models, but still not a bad idea). Not to mention it's just quieter.

I install all my 360 games to the HDD for these reasons.

It does, which makes the ridiculous load times even with the optional install make you wonder how bad they are on the disc.

Are hard drive installs normal to have now? Or is this diffetent from a game install.

I am more towards to full game data install since I have a 250GB HDD.

Yeah, I have a 120 gig with around 9-10 games installed and 49 gigs left on it. The largest bit of data I have, I think, is Gears 2, which is 6.8 gigs, everything else is 4-5 gigs each, in data.

... Got myself a 250GB Halo Reach Limited Edition Xbox 360.. So space is no problem for me, Ever. :P

I don't have the game though. =/

I thought you get the game too with the limited edition :S

Edit:Are you trolling? your supposed to get the game too..

''The $399 price tag also nets you two special edition wireless controllers and, naturally, a copy of the game itself''


Owww ok
