One of the things I have noticed about my Xbox 360 is that I am running out of hard drive space. With many game demos weighing in at nearly a gigabyte, various arcade games, a few trailers for movies and games, and a few tracks that I like to listen to while I game, I have quickly filled the available space in the 20GB Xbox 360 hard drive.
Currently, I have around 1GB left available on my console, and that is only because I deleted all the demos that neither my girlfriend or I don’t play.
There have been rumours that Microsoft is going to release a larger hard drive, which would be a good solution for people like me, though I don’t know how I would migrate my content over to the new drive, or even just my profile. I have currently been able to delete a few more demos off the hard drive, as I have gotten the demo discs with the Official Xbox Magazine, but at around $10 a pop, that can get expensive quick for one or two Xbox 360 demos, and some decent magazine content just to free up another one or two gigs of space on the hard drive.
Though if game publishers would be willing, it could be another option to free up some of your customers hard drive space. I know it seems a bit retro but, put your demos on discs, put them in EB Games or other game sales places to be given away for free, and then I can delete them off my stuffed to the brim hard drive, but still play them from time to time. Sure, I might eventually buy many of the games, and not need the demos anymore, but until then, what am I supposed to do with a full 20GB hard drive when new game demos and other Xbox Live Marketplace content comes out?
Anyone else getting close to maxing out their hard drive, or if you already have, let me know.
