I just got the new crappy Aliens Colonial Marines game from Redbox and when I went to the game details to install the game the option was not there... is it just specific to this game?

I'll pay $2 to shoot dumb aliens for a day. Just want to know why It doesn't give me the option to install the dumb game. I have an original model 360 and am terrified of overworking that disc drive.

That's odd. My game is installed like usual.

Perhaps if I don't have enough memory on my hdd the option wouldn't show up?

Possibly. How much free space do you have on your HDD?

I would imagine the install game option would still be there, just when you go to install it, it won't hit 1% and give you an error stating not enough space.

i've actually had this happen to me before with a blockbuster rental (only time i rented a game since NES days, nba2k10)
could they have rental versions of some games? or could the ring in the center do something?
nyuuuuuuuuu~

8.8 probably is why. Some of the games I have installed are 6.something GB. Clear some space and try again.

Edit:@beautifuldreams, no. The games in the redbox are the same you get at WalMart, target, gamestop, etc. The ring in the center is just a barcode for the machine to check out/in each disc. I have installed redbox games until I returned them no problem since getting a 250gb slim unit.
