    I've heard the Xbox harddrive might be around 8-10 Gb. What are your opinions on this - is it too little space or is it enough?

    So far..I believe the idea is an 8 gb drive. (Western Digital just announced the other day that they are the folks making the drives.) Now...8 gb should be plenty. But..as with all things..we may see this change. I'm guessing there's going to be alot of testing in that area. But...as far as price wise goes...supplying the unit with an 8gb drive would be cost effective..and smart. But..with the way hard disks go on the market now a days..they may be able to use larger drives without increasing the cost. Either way..I think 8 gb will cover it very nicely. (But as with any power user...I'll be glad to take more!)

    I do know that certain developers whom I have talked with are going to support user mods to their titles. Of course this could mean havoc for some power gamers that download every mod or addon available. Maybe there will be some way to connect your xbox to a pc for backups? If the xbox is to offer broadband networking, I personally don't see why Microsoft wouldn't allow file sharing over a LAN or the internet for the XBOX to be able to do this task. Imagine downloading (of course over a period of time) a gig of addons then find that you have to delete them for more stuff.... DILEMMA!!!!

    bet you a dollar the hard drive will be upgradeable. they may not tell you so, but it probly will be. two weeks after it's released you'll hear from someone with a 100gb hd in it.

    Western Digital makes and made the bulk of Xbox HD's which clock in at 8 gigs. Some v1.0 and 1.1 xboxs have Seagate HD's that are 10 gigs, but they are formatted just as the others are, so only 8 gigs is accessible. Honestly for what the Xbox does, this is more that enough. I have rarely heard of someone maxing out their HD with music and savegames.

    with all the downloadable content that is already available and the massive amounts that are planned....you might start to hear alot more stories of people maxing out there HDs

    Man, I have tons of downloadable content, over 100 music tracks and literally hundreds of game saves...and it still says that I have 50,000+ blocks left. So, the way I see it, I haven't even dented my hard-drive yet.

    Honestly, by the time an average XBox gamer max's out their hard-drive by only using the XBox for what it is primarily used for or capable of, they would be hard pressed to even see the damn thing dip below "50,000+ blocks".

    So, long story short, there's nothing to worry about

    Lynx...I want you to listen to me very carefully. Put the bottle down. Do that first. When you have done that, go throw away all your funny little cigarettes. Once that is done, sit down, close your eyes, and think happy thoughs

    I got a question, actually, that I've never had answered. I know people with a ton of music on their boxes, and I' m curious, does the box rip 'em down to .mp3s or some odd format?
