A Xbox 360 with no hard drive?
Do games play a lot better with a XBOX 360 hard drive? Because I went on Youtube and a guy was showing GTA IV without a hard drive and thing started to pop in, then when he put on his hard drive and it ran so much better, but all I just trying to find out dose it do this with all 360 games without a hard drive? Because if it dose that with every games then I go buy one when I had the money to do that?

If you are getting a 360, then get the hard drive. It has a tendency to solve a lot of freezing issues that occur with games THAT SHOULDN'T FREEZE UP AT ALL, but do freeze up because... wait for it... IT'S A 360!
Sorry, very pissed off right now because I can hardly play Fable 2 without it freezing up every 10-15 minutes. I don't have a hard drive and I'm trying to find a way in which I can play this game without one, because this isn't my 360 and I rented the game from Blockbuster for the next 5 days.
But yeah, the hard drive will allow you to cache files and install games, so everything is bound to run a lot faster than off the DVD. Worth it if you intend on continuing your use of the 360, as I'm pretty sure it's only worth a damn if you do.

No not all games will benefit like GTA IV did but quite a few should.
Not to mention it severely cuts down on the noise while playing any game, I'd say that's the biggest benefit.

If u have Fallout 3, Fable 2, Oblivion, or any games with an large open world I suggest u download 2 a hard drive. It helps cuts down on loading and noise also not all games will benefit from it just games with large open worlds that loads a lot.

I only have the memory stick and had no robs whatsoever-but the hard drive is good as you can download extra items for your game etc and actually have the space to save them-this has prompted me to get a hd but not because my gameplay doesnt look good

Some games do like GTA IV, which allows shorten loading times. I would recommend getting a Xbox 360 hard drive as then you can download game DLC, themes, gamerpics, videos and music.

To prevent freezing delete caches on your memory card/hard drives, and also install all games on to your hard drive so your disc drive wont run while playing for hours.

It depends, If you install the game onto the Hard drive, Then it'll run faster and glitch less. Otherwise there would be no difference in performance between running with or without a hard drive.
