Is there a cheap(er) alternative for a Xbox S hard drive - without getting banned from XBL?
I purchased the 4gb Xbox S awhile back, and have found that, even with a thumb drive, I cannot load GOTY DLCs without a HDD. I don't really feel like spending $100 on something I feel I don't need (250GB), but don't know the legality of mods / generic HDDs - and don't want to risk banishment from the land of XBL.
I've seen mods where you can take an older model's HDD and put it in a newer case, but also saw this is against TOS. I've also heard that using any laptop HDD will work (I'm assuming you still need a case?), but not sure of the legality with respect to Xbox. There are also "generics" out there too.
Does anyone have any insight on this type of question? If generic is "OK", does it HAVE to be a 250 gig, or would this (http://www.amazon.com/Hard-Disk-Drive-Microsoft-Xbox-Slim/dp/B004L8XEGY/ref=sr_1_14?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1326481253&sr=1-14) work? Guess the same question applies to using any laptop HDD.
Thanks in advance!
