do i absolutely NEED one? i will be purchashing a 360 today but the hard drive is not included. so im just wondering, should i buy one, or is it just something that would be nice to have? because i dont really see myself playing a sh*tload of games on this thing, just a few.

You need one. A memory card won't be enough for everything you need, unless you are going to play only one game.

well i mean thats the kind of "gamer" i am though, if you could even call me that. i only play one game at a time, and very rarely do i buy alot of games. w/ that being said, i was only planning on buying one game today anyway.

i just checked the prices, and am i right to infer that im only paying 10 dollars more to get 20gb of memory rather than a measley little 512mb?

When you see all the awesome content on XBLA, the new dashboard (which'll let you install games from disc), downloadable content for games (GTA, Rock Band etc...), you'll wish you had the drive!

Happy shopping though!

Feel free to add me (or indeed anybody else) from the list..

I'd highly recommed the folling XBLA games:

Geometry Wars 2
Rez HD
Worms
Castle Crashers

But yes, it's necessary considering that there's going to be a huge update soon that a memory card simply just can't handle. XBox Live is A Must BTW.

Definitely get the HD. You'll regret it if you don't and end up going back and spending more to add it later.

Also, a lot of places have a 60GB HD available for the same price as the 20GB bundle used to cost. Definitely shop around. I think Best Buy has the 60GB w/2 (potentially crappy) games for $300.
The setup:
Fender MIM Fat Strat (midnight wine)
Fender Blues DeVille 410
Digitech GNX3 Multi-effect
Fender CD140SCE Acoustic-Electric

i have heard something about a new game coming out that is too big for the discs so you can ONLY play it if you have a hardrive. I would suggest getting a hardrive.

Hardrive is essential.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.
