    some said that certain games end up running SLOWER from the hard drive, halo 3 was one of them

    ive found tho that the 2 games i put on the HD loaded MUCH MUUCH faster and were brilliant.

    best thing to do is just try, if it loads slower delete it, should be fine tho

    COD4/5 and Fable 2 run a lot faster from the HDD, so did GTA4.

    I found it to run dog slow online aswell as running from the hard drive. Could have been a lot of things, so my argument doesn't really have a leg to stand on.
