Yes, this is a major problem with the new xbox 360. If you bought the 250 gig package, you shouldn't have to worry about this, but it sounds like you bought the 4 gig package. You don't have a hard drive. You only have an IMU(internal memory unit). You can buy an xbox 360 slim hard drive online. Install it into the hard drive slot, located on the side of the console. You're not the only one with this problem, lots of games require hard drives. For example, in halo reach, you cannot play co-op campaign or firefight without a hard drive.

    If you have an old Xbox hard drive, if you want, i'll tell you how to put that into your new xbox. Its risky, but i've done it and it works.

    I have the exact same problem and this solution is rather frustrating. Nowhere does it say that I need a hard drive, I have external flash memory that solves memory space issues. As an owner of an xbox and all the correct components I should have the right to play all games.

    This is a major unreported disadvantage to buying the 4gb xbox slim.

    I does not say that you do, but it is an unforeseen technical problem. Bungie games have ALWAYS made use of hard drives to assist in load times and to synch up enemy AI and whatnot. It has nothing to do with storage, but it has everything to do with efficiency and for the program being able to cache its assets. Compared to hard drives, flash storage and flash based media devices have extremely low read-write cycles. Playing firefight and co-op campaign is already difficult for the machine to manage simply because of the huge amount of data flowing through. If they used flash storage, then those features would simply become unplayable due to hardware limitations.

Will Kinect work with existing games?


This is another area that has sparked a lot of confusion, mostly due to the fact that a Kinect Burnout Paradise video has been released, and so people began assuming that since Burnout Paradise was a previously released game, that other previously released games will be available for Kinect use. That is not the case, as Kudo Tsunoda, the Creative Director for Kinect has said, that existing games require a large rewrite of their code, which will not make it practical for them to release update packs to work with Kinect. But, definitely expect some sequels to games, as well as annual sports games to come out utilizing Kinect controls.

My son saved money and bought a Xbox 360 Arcade. He did not realize that he could not play his xbox games on his new system. Is there an upgrade to allow old xbox games to be played on on the xbox 360


Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.

You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade

X-Box 360 Burnout Paradise - Burnout Bike update


Okay, I figured it out myself, if anyone has this problem, with the new update you should get dynamic weather and bikes with day-to-night play. If not, for me it didn't get the update all the way, so I had to re-download update v1.7. To make sure you have the update, when you start the game it should have "Burnout Paradise" in a blue logo type, before the update it was red, and you will have the choice to change from cars to bikes.
