Should I install Xbox 360 games to my hard drive?

Are there any benefits/downsides to installing an Xbox 360 game to my hard drive before playing it?


One of the benefits would be that your disc will get less wear and tear. You still need to put the disc in, but after verifying it, it shouldn’t be read again (though that will depend on the game). This should minimize the danger of scratching it if the console gets knocked. There should also be less noise as it doesn’t need to keep the optical disk spinning.

You might also get faster loading times – but that would depend on the game.

An obvious downside is that you are going to fill your hard drive if you do this for all your games.
