    Exactly how fast does the internal memory fill up? I'm not looking to get a lot of games, just 1 or 2, but I would like to get a few of the downloadable games off Live, I'm just not sure how large those games normally are.

    Games off Xbox Live range from 30MB upto approx 2GB, you can see the file size before you spend any money on the downloadable game to help choose one of a smaller file size.

    I forgot, how much memory do you get with the Arcade version of the the Xbox 360?

    You get 512 MB of memory.

    I would recommend a hard drive 360. Simply because 512 MB is going to fill up damn fast.

    Wow that's a really tiny amount. Yeah you're totally gonna have to get a hard drive, its a shame the memory cards are of such equal tiny storage.

    Get a hard drive, it's really worth the extra.

    Not to mention XBox Live requires a storage device. Unless you want to buy endless memory cards, go with a version with the hard drive.
