Whether you get the 250GB over the 4GB depends on what deals you can get on bundles, and whether your kids are likely to want to install games to the hard drive or use Live to download demos, XBLA games, DLC etc.

You can use a USB stick to add storage space, as long as it passes the performance test done by the 360 (most decent brand name sticks should pass).

Also, take into consideration the space requirements for Kinect, especially as it'll be used in a bedroom. You need about 6 feet of space for 1 player games and 8 feet for 2 player. Some people on here have got it to work with less space than that, but I would assume that's the minimum you need as that's what's recommended by MS.

thanks for the help the room is 13ft by 13ft so it should be fine and its really only for playing games not bothered about downloading them or installing them on the hardrive,

I would consider the 4 GB S and Kinect bundle then and you can always add a hard drive later. I saw this bundle in Tesco last weekend for £235 instead of £249.99.

Agre with mjpartyboy the arcade pack is perfect for what you need the 250gb hdd would be wasted

It might be a bit of a trek depending where you live but Tesco's Extra in Stockton-on-Tees had quite a few 4gb Kinect bundles at £235 when I was in there on Tuesday night.
