Answers. Yes, but if you want to save game data, you should get a memory card. Otherwise you will have to restart the game every time you turn off the 360.
But in 2010, the company changed its policy and introduced a system update that allows any USB storage device to be used as storage. So people don’t need to buy proprietary Xbox 360 memory cards these days.
Instead of relying on memory cards, the Xbox One supports external hard drives as long as they use the USB 3.0 standard and are larger than 128GB. This applies to all consoles in the Xbox One family, from the original to the recently released Xbox One X.
Answer: Yes, you can play games offline from disc without hard drive, but not download and play games online. Don’t forget that if you want to play older original Xbox games, you’ll need a hard drive.
The Xbox 360 S 4GB console has internal flash memory that is not removable. The internal hard drive can be purchased separately.
The Xbox 360 Memory Card was introduced on November 22, 2005 with the console. The memory card was similar to a hard drive which was able to store achievements and saved data from the console. They were available in 64, 256 and 512 MB capacities. They were produced from 2005-2011.
The console features 512MB GDDR3 RAM clocked at 700MHz with an effective transfer rate of 1.4GHz on a 128-bit bus. The memory is shared between the CPU and the GPU via the unified memory architecture. This memory is manufactured by either Samsung or Qimonda.
It worked fine for me on 360. There was a free game Worms that came on the old Memory Units and was only licensed for free play on that type of device. So if you copied it to a disc or hard drive, it wouldn’t play. I put it on an SD card and connected a reader via USB and it worked fine.
Although you can install an Xbox 360 game on your console from a disc, this will not let you play the game without the disc – it will only improve loading times and reduce noise advise and reduce disc wear.
You still need an Xbox Live Gold subscription for an Xbox 360. Microsoft is dropping the Xbox Live branding and now simply refers to the software and services as the Xbox Network.
Installing games on your hard drive reduces loading times and minimizes access to game discs. You can install games on a USB flash drive or on a 4GB Xbox 360 console. However, some games do not play correctly. Original Xbox games cannot be installed on an Xbox 360 hard drive.
You need a USB memory. The Xbox 360 has three USB 2.0 ports – sorry, they’re not USB 3.0 – with two on the front hidden under a small door and one on the back. You can connect USB storage – flash drives and/or hard drives – to any or all of these ports if you wish. For my own upgrade, I bought a 1TB WD external hard drive.
An incorrectly installed hard drive can cause this problem. You can verify correct installation at Add or remove an Xbox 360 hard drive. Turn your Xbox 360 console off and on again: Turn off your console, and then remove the Xbox 360 hard drive.

The Xbox 360 was released on 22. Released November 2005 in the United States and Canada; December 2, 2005 in Europe and December 10, 2005 in Japan.
