huh XBox360 HDD is not locked to the motherboard.
He may mean the first XBOX, although if you format the HDD (and lose BC capabilities
it asks for the 360 Serial)

And yes the drive spinning at max RPM 24/7 is one of the things in the 360 launch games that makes you go up to the developers and punch them in the mouth for not precaching AT ALL to the HDD.
Like in PGR3 it streams the textures of the track from the DVD constantly, and even though you've already completed a full lap it still keeps hammering the DVD for any subsequent laps you do because it doesnt cache to the HDD at all. AARGGHHH Bizarre you are just begging to be slapped.
Probably because not all 360's will have the HDD, esp with the people who had to get a Core because of the Premium shortage (although it would have been nice if it could detect the HDD and use it for caching if it was there)
It looks rather poor when racing and and all of a sudden the windows on a building just appear, or you see faceless buildings.This post has been edited by loserkid182: Feb 15 2006, 08:10 PM
