FYI....it's more than just dick jokes. I walked across the ass of a giant stripper last night.

Although I will say, while some of juvenile puns and jokes do get very old, the game is totally aware of mocking the horror game genre which has lead to some very entertaining and funny moments.

I just found out you can use the license transfer tool once every 4 months now instead of 12. I had no idea they had changed the time limit, that's great news. Thanks to Chrono Gear on CAG for the info.

Newegg has the 4GB Slim with Kinect as today's shell shocker, $299.99 + $100.00 Newegg Gift Certificate + Newegg T-Shirt. Looks like you also get UPS 3 day shipping free.

Xbox 360 4GB w/Kinect

I wish there would be more specials with the 250GB version. Fuck the 4GB.

Yeah, but you can turn around and use the GC to buy the 200GB hard drive that costs that much. It's essentially like buying a the large model and getting a free Kinect.

D'oh. I didn't think of that. Does the 4gb xbox with the kinect use the new 250gb drive or the old one?

New hard drives. The old are deprecated. Plus the 4gb console is fly matte instead of glossy.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

Thanks for the quick answers. I went ahead and bit. I have been wanting one for the upstairs and this will keep the kids out of my basement. I'm gonna wait on getting the $100 GC from newegg and just probably use it to order the 250gb hd even though it appears a good bit more there than elsewhere since I never really shop at newegg.

A 250gb 360 with Kinect for $320 with free shipping and no tax is a damn good deal.

I was thinking about upgrading, but I really would like the Gears 360 bundle that's coming out. I'm trying to see how much trade-in credit I can stock pile at Amazon for it.

Nope, just two of the new D pad style controllers and a copy of the game. I'm thinking about getting that Gears system as well, since one of my controllers is acting up and I was going to pick up a copy of the game anyways. And I have no need for a kinect.

And a 320GB HD, too. Biggest so far.

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

Do any of you have a generic hard drive for the 360? I just bought my son of the 4GB Kinect packages and we need a little larger HD but don't really need a 120 or 250 GB for his limited playing. The only drawbacks I read is that they do not play Xbox Original games (the old games downloaded from Live) and I also think it does not play backwards compatible games.

$34 bucks shipped for a 60GB generic seems pretty good since that is all we need. He won't be watching movies or downloading stuff to it. And I can spend that $100 bucks GC from newegg on something else.

Any opinions or something I should know? He really won't be getting online much (if at all) but I didn't know if they can remote brick the HD or something.

If you can find someone on craigslist or such selling an original 20GB drive those can be easily removed from their case and used with the newer Xboxes. Since there's no real market for the older clip-on drives any longer they tend to be really cheap if you can locate one.

For my Arcade, I bought an "official" hard drive off ebay and it turns out someone had simply modded a generic drive. There are ways to get it working with Xbox original games, but it took a bit of tinkering.

However, I think mugwump has a good idea.

Or you can check Amazon Warehouse deals where they regularly have the 250GB HD for $60.

Awesome! I had no idea you could do this. I just watched a couple of videos on youtube and it looks really easy.

You may have saved me even more money as I just remembered while typing this that I should still have my old 20gb hard drive from when I upgraded my old unit to a 120gb hd. Thanks!

No problem, glad to help. The only tricky part is getting the drive to seat properly when you put it in the new Xbox so just take your time with that step.

Go to ebay and buy one of the housings for the HDD if you go this route, and look for a 60gb HDD if possible. It is better to have a bit more than you think you will need. I got a 120gb HDD from craigslist for $45 and am using it in my 4gb unit with an ebay case I paid $9 shipped, and no complaints.

I don't think there is any way the numbers are accurate, at least not for me. They're way too high.

Some game names are wrong for me also. Dead Space 2 shows up as Dead Space, and Crackdown shows up as Crackdown890.

Yeah, there's no way I spent over 300 hours playing Mafia II, although it did feel like it at times.

Yeah... I don't think so. I play Zombie mode a few hours, maybe twice a week on the high side. I haven't even touched the MP or campaign.
