I have two reasons to ask this:

 

1-I don't want my Xbox360 fat model sounding like an aircraft constantly because she is reading the second disk

2-Xbox 360 20gb hard drive has about 13gb free of space: 8gb (If it's gonna be 8gb exactly) + 6,7gb like other games: 14,7

 

But I can install two games normally, for example RDR and EFLC, each one ocuppied 6,7gb. My possible solution is buy a new HDD (no) or buy an external hard drive (more interesting for me)

 

What do you think?

 

Hope people understand my english.

I have a friend in a similar situation.  He got one of these flash drives, much cheaper than the Sandisk, and one of the fastest USB 2.0 flash drives around.  Reviewers report good compatibility with Xbox.

Old model Xbox360 with 20gig here aswell.

I can free up 13 Gb, but then i'll have to remove RDR

 

We can't be sure if we can install both disks until we know exactly how much space is required for Disk 1 and Disk 2.

Several sources say its 8Gb for the mandatory install.

So there is 5 gb left for additional stuff.

 

BUT when U use a memory stick , it needs to be at least 16Gb,( 8 for the install of the mandatory content, 8 to swap ?? )

I got a 250 GB HDD for my Xbox 360 slim in June for around 30 bucks. It was a steal. Not sure if you'll be able to find them anymore (I found mine on Amazon) but you can certainly try.

I think 20gb should be plenty, I only have 16gb free atm.

In the link I posted above, I forgot to mention it is available in various sizes up to 128 GB.

20 GB won't be enough.  The second disc is around 8GB too so the 13.1 GB free that you will have won't do it.

I bought a 32gb USB flash drive to install the game onto, hope it works as my 20gb unit sounds like a small jet in the corner when the drive is running full tilt!

I've buy yesterday the same stick (32gb) together with a XBox360.E 4GB.

 

The installation of games took a bit longer with an flash drive. But the games and textures loads much faster, as a regular hdd. Especially with the Transcend JetFlash 600 Extreme-Speed (32MB/s reading).

 

I will only play GTA and I am not interested in other games. So 32gb are enough for me. :)

If you want to install both disks it would be about 16 gig

Both dicsc will probably be around 8gb each.

Doesn't running the game off your USB corrupt it eventually?

I had 20gb but with no games only my profile I only had about 15 I heard whole gta is 18gb and time you allow for updates and online mode and dlc I purchased a 60gb hdd which is much more efficient than a usb stick and they are dirt cheap if you are in the uk cex are charging 12 pounds for 60gb

I cant work out why they bothered bringing out a 4 gb xbox slim even the original 20gb was kinda sucky but why would anyone even buy a 4gb xbox slim just so that people on a low budget could have the new look xbox why buy it plugging a usb in sucks and remember allowing for update patches and dlc along the way and god knows how much the game  svaes are going to take

lmfao ps3s are so quiet you cant even hear them...... I cant even believe how load and hot xboxes got when I had one.... i couldnt even hear the game because the xbox was so loud.. When you get a ps3 you immediately notice the HUGE difference, you cant hear a single thing from the ps3...
