Installing games to the Harddrive?

Does anyone know if we will be able to install original Xbox games to the harddrive as well as 360 games? Just something that came across my mind...

It's called Xbox Originals. :]

I do not believe they have released anything regarding backwards compatible games, however, I would think they would.

Good question, I would assume that current generation (360) games have the priority but if they see a popular demand for old games, they would consider the idea.

I sure hope so, its a good idea.

I have no idea, but I just have a feeling that it won't be allowed.

Wait, I don't understand your question, the only time you can install games on your Hard drive is if you buy them off of the Xbox Originals section on Marketplace. Otherwise you can't copy them from disc to hard drive.

That is a good question, though I would tend to think they would figuring the format they use is basically the same. Hope they do allow that.

They've got no incentive to do it, and they probably have to discuss it with publishers, but it would be cool if they did.

It'd be even better if they threw out the disc-in-tray rule for original Xbox titles. I remember ripping my games to my softmodded original Xbox. Not having to put in a disc was pretty awesome.

Of course. It will show up in the memory section when you look at the page.

Good question, but they want you to repay 20 bucks for Xbox Originals. OWNED

Is it really needed though? Many original Xbox games takes advantage of the HDD in some way and the the 360 is also fairly quiet when playing them. There are also the downloadable Xbox original that are played from the HDD entirely.
