Default 360 Question

I bought my nephew a 360/4gb/kinect for Christmas (but it's just as much for me, as he lives with me). Anyway, I was looking at storage solutions. Do you guys think 2 16 GB flash drives would provide me enough storage? I won't be using it for media (I'll continue to use my PS3 for Movies/Xvids/Music/etc), so it's really just for games and saves and such. Or do you guys think I won't be happy unless I get the 250GB HDD?

On a side note, I tried the rafting on Kinect and it's pretty cool, but my favorite part is navigating menus and such with my hands...That seriously kicks ass...lol

I thought you needed a HD in order to save games on a 360.

I'd get the HD so you can get demos, arcade games etc. and not worry about space or swapping out usb drives

You can put the DLC on thumb drives as well as demos and such. So long as you are not going to use it for media or installing games to the HD (you still need to put in the disc anyhow), it shouldn't be an issue.

Hard Drive is essential imo. DLC, Demos, Arcade games.. And offcourse installs for quiet and faster loading times.
They did a great job featuring installation option on 360. I always hated the loud of spinning discs

I agree with Lyme, if you're not planning on installing games to memory, then the flash drives should be enough.

If you start downloading demos and what not then it could become annoying, at which point it may be better to just buy a hard drive.
