You can add a harddrive any time you want, or use a 32GB USB stick.

You really should install games you're going to play, honestly in any situation 4GB just doesn't cut it for any gamer that's more than casual.

Instead of thinking about buying the 4GB for 200$

You SHOULD be thinking about the Xbox720 for 400 - 500

Na dont want a 720, so much great games for 360 I wanna play. so 4 GB can last me 10 games worth of saves? I can play online too? I would eventually buy a harddive months later, could I transfer saves from the 4 GB to the 320 GB i buy?

Yes you can transfer the saves later.

You get around 3.2GB of usable space in a 4GB system after it updates online and if you get the optional Media Update to play videos.

As long as you don't get into DLC for a while you'll have plenty of space for just game saves, and you can boost that space with a USB drive.

Theres a fewgames out there that require a hard drive install for online multiplayer like Halo 4. And some games, like Mass Effect Multiplayer or Gears 3 might be nearly unplayable without any of the multiplayer dlc since some of it is free and everyone has it. Some games also have compatability packs to work online like borderlands 1 or 2.

If might me worth investing in a 32GB USB right away if you can depending on what your planning on playing.

4 gigs is just nothing.

It's very doable if you only play from physical copies and don't play games with a lot of DLC and updates. Some game updates can be over 1GB in size.

The 4GB console is really intended more for people who want to just play games and don't do much online play or plan on getting a hard drive later. Game saves are pretty small and so are apps. So you pretty much can have some game saves and apps and maybe an arcade game or two and then it will be full. You'll find yourself often deleting something to make room for something else.

But I was able to make do with it for two years just fine, but I'm more of a type of person who plays single player games that don't require DLC.
