Exclamation Uninstalling games

Sorry if this has been covered before.. I did a quick search and didn't find anything here, and I googled my question but see that there are many different opinions.

I'm going to be picking up Halo 3: ODST on Boxing Day, and in order to install it to my hard drive I'll need to free up some space (read: delete some games I rarely play anymore).

My question is: am I able to delete the games themselves while retaining my saved progress? Or when I delete them will I have to start over if/when I ever pick them up to play again?

The general consensus on the net was that when I uninstall them I'll keep my achievements at least.. is that also true?

Thanks!

You sure can.

On your XBOX go to:

My Xbox/System settings/memory and select your Hard drive.
(System settings is the last option on the "My Xbox" line)

  • Open the games folder then select the HALO: ODST folder.
  • There you should see a list of items relevant to your game. (Save files, etc.)
  • Select the file labeled HALO: ODST Installed XBOX 360 game.
  • Then select delete.

The game will be gone, but your save files will remain.

Um. He's buying ODST PM.

Does the same explanation work for other games PM.
Deleting the Installed 360 game for any of the games he previousy installed.

Sorry miss read.

On your XBOX go to:

My Xbox/System settings/memory and select your Hard drive.
(System settings is the last option on the "My Xbox" line)

  • Open the games folder then select the specific game folder of the game you want to remove.
  • There you should see a list of items relevant to your game. (Save files, etc.)
  • Select the file labelled "Installed XBOX 360 game".
  • Then select delete.

The game will be gone, but your save files will remain.

To make double sure you don't delete your save games, move / copy them to a USB data stick first. The XBOX will now allow use of up to a 16GB stick.
