    With as many songs as my friend and I download for Rockband 1 and 2, my 20gig was getting down to 229 MB left.

    Yesterday before finishing COD4 I decided to rummage through and found 5 different gamer profiles, deleted the map packs for COD4, WaW, a bunch of game demos, pictures, and random movies. I jumped my harddrive space up from 229 MB to 6.8 GB free.

    Next time I go through I'll delete even more.

    WaW alone took 1.6 GB because of two saved games and 3 map packs. lol

    Traded in COD4, WaW, Ghostbusters, and Left 4 Dead and got 26.84 in credit for Black Ops. which means itll only cost me 30ish.

    its hard to tell. you get 1200 points for 12.50. the songs are either 80 or 160 points. all I know is I have more songs on this hd than came on rockband 2 (which had 86 songs).

    I need to just bite the bullet and either get a new 360 stealth box or buy a bigger HDD. Halo Reach is optimized to be ran off the hard disk but there is really no way for me to delete any more without deleting game saves that I am not finished with yet.

    My PS3 came with a 120gb HD standard, and the one I have is considered the base model. Also, you don't have to by an overpriced Sony brand HD if you want more space, you can just buy a standard computer hard drive.

    Just sayin'! :D

    I think my 360 has the 20gb...

    The 360 slim ships with a 250 now. I got the 360 hit the shelves I got one so all I have is the 20 gig. But now that game makers are optimizing for HDD instillation I have a reason to upgrade.

    I would have no use for a 120 GB, I'd fill it 1/6th the way up and then clean it out.

    Just the way I am. I've cleaned up my 120 gb harddrive on my desktop several times over the past 8 years I've owned it...

    Sometimes I just get bored of playing, but I don't want to turn it off yet, so I rummage through things and change or clean it up. I'd do it if I had a 120gig, 1 terrabyte or a 20 gig...
