Halo 4 will require a HDD or 8 GB flash drive for online play
Halo 4 is Microsoft’s big thing this year, in more ways than one. After Joystiq scrolled through a recent products page on Xbox.xom, they figured out that "at a minimum, you’ll need at least an 8GB USB Flash Drive or an Xbox 360 Hard Drive to play Multiplayer mode in Halo 4." It doesn’t clarify which portion of the multiplayer requires this, but if you remember Halo Reach had a similar issue in regards to co-op.
So optional installs are becoming a thing of the past and by that logic, it seems like the 4GB Xbox 360 should be as well. If there are core games which might limit a user’s opportunity to "fully enjoy the game" based on storage space, it doesn’t seem like smart business to sell a 4GB Xbox 360 anymore. You ruin the customer experience. What do you g1s think?
