Halo: Reach Co-Op Issues Confirmed
After reports surfaced today that gamers using a 4GB Xbox 360 model to play Halo: Reach found the online co-op mode unplayable, Microsoft has confirmed that a hard drive is required to play the game. The publisher has officially updated the game’s support page with the information, which now states that “Some multiplayer aspects of Halo: Reach require an Xbox 360 certified hard drive” in the FAQ section.
As the game works now, each player involved in the co-op session is required to have a hard drive, otherwise the screen will display an error message that reads "One or more players do not have the hard drive required for this game type." Whenever or not the game will be updated to allow non-hard drive users to play cooperatively remains unknown.
