Xbox 360 console 250GB Hard Drive Worth It?

Yes, the Xbox 360 Hard Drive 250GB is worth it since I can use the 250GB of space to install all my Xbox 360 games to my Xbox 360 hard drive. This means I would have faster load times since the Xbox 360 hard drive is a lot faster then the Xbox 360 DVD drive.

Plus, My Xbox 360 is also a lot quieter since I no longer hear my Xbox 360’s DVD drive spin since my games are being played off the 360’s 250GB hard drive. The Xbox 360 hard drive also does not make any noticeable noise when I play games.

Since my Xbox 360 games which I installed onto my 360 hard drive, now I also have faster load times compared to plating games off the game disc tray.

With a bigger Xbox 360 hard drive, I can also download and buy more downloadable content from the Xbox Live Marketplace without worrying about running out of space or not having enough space for downloadable content.

The Xbox 360 Hard Drive 250GB hard drive also comes with a USB transfer cable and software CD to let you transfer your old game saves, profiles, downloadable content, and other files to your new hard drive.

If you own an Xbox 360 slim, you need to get the Xbox 360 250GB Hard Drive for the Slim Xbox 360 since the old 250 GB hard drive for the Xbox 360 Fat version will not fit in the Slim version.

Installing the Xbox 360 hard drive on your Xbox 360 console is also very easy. All you have to do is turn off your console, attach the hard drive, and turn your Xbox 360 back on again.

    I have some transfer cables for my Xbox 360 but when i plug it into my computer the hard drive does not show up. What am i doing wrong?

    The Transfer Cable only works with the Xbox 360 Hard drive+Xbox 360 Console USB port, and does not work with computers according to the user manual. You first need to put in the Disc which came with your transfer cable into your 360 disc tray , and turn off your 360 then attach your new hard drive to your Xbox 360 side. Lastly, Plug your old Xbox 360 hard drive to the transfer cable into the USB port, and turn your Xbox 360 back on.

    The xbox 360 Kinect with 4 GB. is what the original arcade version should have been, and is definitely worth its $300 price tag.

    Belgie, I agree with you. But, the 4GB Xbox 360 is 199.99 at Amazon which you can buy at this link: Xbox 360 4GB Console .

    hi there yes the 250 gb xbox 360 is worth it my old 20 gb xbox 360 had a 5 second slower hard drive and sence i am hard core gamer the faster the hard drive loads games with less lag time i am happy with new xbox 360 hard drive porformance but my ps3 hard drive takes like 30 minutes thats why i dont like ps3 hard drive too slow i hope futuer next gen consoles use even faster hard drives and faster flash drives too gaming is about pure speed

    Wow, 30 minutes is too slow for loading on a PS3. I think in the future, Hard drives would be Solid State Memory drive which is super fast, use less power, and are more reliable. I agree Gaming is about speed, and great graphics these days.

    Glad to see that your having faster load times with your new 4GB flash drive. My 250GB drive is still working great. I wonder when MS comes out with a official Solid state flash drive with at least a 60GB or higher capacity for the Xbox 360.
