Battlefield 4 needs at least 2 GB disc space on your hard drive, not including updates. If you have enough free space on your hard drive, you should be able to install the game.

Note, the above-required and below-additional installations can only be installed on Xbox 360 hard disk drives, and cannot be installed to USB drives, or other alternative storage devices. Battlefield 4 cannot be installed and played on a 4GB internal flash drive. This includes the Xbox 360 4GB, Core or Arcade versions of Xbox 360, in which case a HDD is a separate purchase.
You will have the option to accept the 2GB install or quit. Quitting will return you to the Xbox dashboard, and you will not be able to play Battlefield 4.

As with many Xbox 360 titles, in addition to the required installation each disc can be installed to your hard drive to minimize game disc access and improve load times.

These additional installations are not required, but doing so can further improve and speed up your Battlefield 4 experience.
  • The Multiplayer Disc, or Disc 1, has an additional 6.6 GB of content
  • The Single Player Disc, or Disc 2, has 5.8 GB of installation content
Note: Be sure you install the mandatory installation content before you try installing each game disc’s content.
  • If you do try to install the optional disc-content before the required game data installation, your install will stop before completion, and ask you to install again.
  • If your install does fail due to installing content in the incorrect order, your second or subsequent attempts at installing the required content should complete successfully.

Cheers

Basti

Xbox tells me that I have to purchase an external harddrive for my 4GB xbox slim. I had 2.2 GB left on my xbox and it would not install. When I tried with a new USB it would not work either. Options?

I've seen 360 Slim HDDs on Amazon for as low as $45 last year, I bought a 320GB one for that price myself; you might want to check there.

"You will have the option to accept the 2GB install or quit. Quitting will return you to the Xbox dashboard, and you will not be able to play Battlefield 4." 

In brazil, i pay 100 dollars for the game, and have listen this. this is ridiculous.
