It could hold 1, if the game was 160gb... smile.gif

Most games are like 2gb, some 3/4gb.. work it out.

do the maths.. i have about 100 gigs on my F drive, so 100 divided by 5 gigs. that will give you a rough indication but wont be perfect because games have various sizes.

This question has been answered a thousand times.. Jeez.

There is no set amount of games a hard drive can hold. It all depends on the games. Not like you wont have the originals if you run out of room right? wink.gif

Games are roughly 4 to 5 gigs. Some more, some less. Ninja Gaiden is like 10gigs, Fuzion Frenzy is 1 gig.

I backed up this HORRIBLE games once. It was some kinda paintball game and it was only 750mb!!! I hated the game so much I deleted it even though it was .5 of one GB tongue.gif

Things like Halo 2 cannot be put on the stok hard drive because it is 5-6 GB. But halo 1 works fine biggrin.gif

The two largest games I've seen yet are Ninja Gaiden and Kotor II. And I believe NG was close to 6gb. If it were 10, I would be reconsidering whether it should stay on my HDD or not.

I don't know which Halo 2 you backed up?...But my first setup was using a stock HDD and burned a copy of Halo 2 on it so I could mod some maps. The whole game fit plus some more room for a few emu's and roms. Halo 2 should be atleast a little TINY bit over 4gb, maybe right at the 4gb line. I'll have to go back to DVD2XBOX and put the game in to get an accurate reading.

Halo 2 (ver 1.0) is 4.4 GB. Maybe I have more apps than you? Plus, I had the WD 8GB hard drive. You might have the Seagate 10GB one... I dont really know

Concerning Halo2, it is about 3600mb (for some reason i kept looking at it like the size would go down) cause i kept trying to put it on my wd 8gb hdd.
