Hmmm.

I'm looking forward to Hitman Absolution in November.

Can the Xbox stream videos from Nas drives and get iPlayer etc?
I have both, Turismo is graphically superior, Forza is a far better driving experience Thumbs Up Turismo also taken f**king ages to unlock the various licences! Shocked

That's pretty neat. Through the browser I guess? Or is it an app?
There are other apps too, like Facebook, Netflix etc, that work absolutely fine! The Sky channels are reliant on a good broadband connection, and are movie downloads, otherwise you'll spend all of your time buffering! LOL

Do you really need to ask that question?

Are you on dial up AOL?

SA14, what you going to use it for is the ultimate question

if it's online gaming, then PS3 (don't have to pay a fee) and there's the addition of being able to watch blu-ray dvd's.

Yes I do need to ask it if I want advice. Some sites say it's enough some say it isn't. I'd say no chance but thought I'd ask.

What memory size should I get?

Basically it's for my son. He's not an avid gamer who spends hours in front of the TV.

you mean hard disc space, doesn't matter anymore.. i've had a 40 gig for 4 years and still got 18 gig free.

regarding gaming. 1meg connections is ok, but expect some lag that is all..

Cheers Sal.

What hard disc space models are there and which would you recommend?

I'd say 1mb is nowhere near enough.

You need at least 3 or 4 these days to enjoy decent gaming experience.

Hard disk space? Doesn't really matter if you are going to be using it for mostly gaming - and buying the games physically, as opposed to downloading them.

depending on the game Kid A,

most games now look at your ping rate and get you games that have similar ones....

the 160gb ones are the cheapest, so just get one. you won't be loading music on it and films so it doesn't matter
