With The New Xbox Experience update, your 360 can be able to install games onto the hard drive. But no, they don't install the whole thing and you can chuck the disc but the core data of the game so it can be played faster or possibly smoother but also a lot quieter and less hard work for your trusty Xbox. So is it worth it? With this informative chart it will list the install size and any time saving perks.

Obviously I can not write the information for every game there, so the list is mainly empty.

So you can help! Just install and record and time saving perks with play on the Hard Drive!

Thank you in advance!

Nice idea you have there, although you missed off Skate 2 on the list. If that's true about Bully virtually having no loading times once on the HDD I might consider doing it. I know it might be a little hard getting this info, but it would be helpful to have like another list area for say, how much room it would take up on the HDD for each game.

There is the area that it takes up on the Hard Drive, look at the middle column.
Also I don't have Skate 2, and I don't know its size yet, but when i do I'll actually put it up there

@FunkyChunky: Yeah that's the site i got most the info from. Still it's not that helpful when it's been
UPDATED AS OF January 14th, 2009!!

That site hasn't been touched in months.

I've already added to Test Drive and some other games....
