    Hi everyone,

    i bought a new 320Gb hard drive from Game to put in to my 4Gb Xbox Slim.

    The drive arrived today and it installed fine. I then used the code to download the free Star Wars Lego game and that all worked without issue.

    When I looked on the hard drive for the game, I noticed that there half a dozen or so other games already on the hard drive, like Peggle and Risk?

    Should these games be on a brand-new hard drive or have I been sold a second-hand drive (was listed as new on the Game website)? interestingly, on the receipt that came with the hard drive it says:

    Xbox 360 Hard Drive - 320GB Accessories Mint

    The Mint part makes me think it may be preowned.

    Can anyone shed any light on this for me?

    Many thanks,

    Matthew

    I'd say yeah. When I brought a 20gb for my Core xbox it came with a load of trials on. You def get the full game of Hexic HD.
    I've not brought a Hard Drive seperatly since but every console i've brought since is always got a few trials on. I brought a new 360s last week and it came with Hexic HD and had a trial for Peggle on it.

    My last 2 brand new consoles came pre-loaded with several trial games so I wouldn't worry about it.
