    Storing games on your hard drive does not allow you to play them. You still need to have the actual game disk to play. When you save the game on the hard drive it is basically to cut down on the Xbox needing to actually pull information from the disk which all in all cuts down loading times.

    You can save your xbox 360 game to your hard drive but you will still need a disc to play it. So yes you can play online if you download it to your hdd but you will need a copy of that game to play it.

    you can't do that. even if you install the game to the hard drive, you need the disc in the xbox itself to play. They do that specifically to prevent what you want to do (which basically amounts to stealing, btw). You have to buy your own copy of the game to play it with your friend.

With all the extra money, time, and so on that has long gone into correcting the inherant flaw that motives the XBOX (FIXBOX) to crap the mattress, they have purely controlled to convey it down only approximately as low because of the fact the failure fee of the PS3.. only approximately. That to me, could be considered one of my greatest products of purchasing for standards. i bought a PS3 the comparable time as my chum bought an XBOX, he's on his third... I nonetheless have my unique.
