Halo: Reach co-op hard drive requirement unresolved, no ETA on fix

Joystiq writes: "Following the launch of Halo: Reach, we reported that the game's co-op functionality requires an Xbox 360 hard drive. This was of particular concern to those who had purchased one of the newly released 4GB Xbox 360 S models. At the time, we were told that the issue was "temporary" and that Microsoft was "working to resolve it."

The story is too old to be commented.

this doesn't surprise me cause there other games on the 360 that also needs a hard Drive to even play them other wise you'll see this messages on the screen.

This disc is unreadable

1.Clean the disc with a soft cloth
2.Restart the console.

This is because if you use pirate disc, the AP25 will block the game and you won't be able to play. I play games w/o installing on the HD normally.

But he's talking about legally owning a game, and not being able to play it w/o a HD.

Really, it's more of a way for them to get an extra ~$120 out of you to cough up for a HD.

The better question, is why did they bother releasing a 4GB system that's flash memory, and NOT a HD, if they make it so that you have to have a HD to play some of the recent games coming out to begin with?

I traded my copy of Reach in, patiently waiting for Killzone 3

AuToFiRE2897d ago

same here brother. how can you trust hardware from a company that charges $300 for an OS and cant even make the software properly without thinking there is some sort of scam behind it

Pixel_Enemy2897d ago

I don't really have a problem with MS or my xbox.. I just didn't really like Reach much. I am more of a KZ graphic whore

egidem2897d ago

I traded my copy as well. For some weird reason, I think that buying Halo reach was a bad purchase. This is my opinion about myself. I think I'll wait for the awesome Killzone 3.

.... Where you guys born retarded or is it a condition caused by continually licking a Playstation 3?

I would pay good money to see your face if for some reason KZ3 doesn't end up being quite as "awesome" as you expect it to.

Next post: "I think that buying KZ3 was a bad purchase..."
