I'm looking forward to buying an Xbox 360 Slim 4GB to get started with XNA development. Can I develop games/apps on my Windows PC and deploy them to the Xbox without a Creators Club subscription? I'm not looking at publishing my work or putting it up on a marketplace.
And does this model of Xbox 360 support game deployment and storage? I heard that it doesn't. Can anyone confirm which model of Xbox I should purchase to begin XNA development? If I buy the 4GB Slim what development features would not be supported?
At the very least, you will need a Silver Xbox LIVE membership, an XNA Creators Club premium membership, and a hard drive for your Xbox 360 console to be able to develop games for Xbox 360 using XNA Game Studio.
Another deployment technique article is a little ambiguous.
