Default Extra space.

Ok so it was my sons birthday just gone, We got him a Xbox 360 .... One of the new black slimline ones ... The problem is its only got a 4GB internal HDD.

Ive noticed there's a slot to add a larger HDD .... What kind of HDD would i need for the 360? I mean is there a max size? speed? Would a ordinary SATA HDD work?

Any help is appreciated.

You have to buy one of their specific, overpriced harddrives.

You can. but there is a bit of work to do it, plus it counts as a console mod, IF MS can detect it, they will ban the console. As it's your sons. I wouldn't risk it.
