View Full Version : Can't Play Halo Reach Co-OP? this is a feature and not a bug

NukeZilla reports that owners of the new 4GB slim Xbox consoles aren't able to play co-op in Halo: Reach which was released today. According to the site, the new Xbox Consoles just don't have the storage to fit the game.

When tested by Nukezilla an error message was shown when trying to join the co-op campaign, which means the user won't be able to access this part of the game at all without spending money on extra peripherals.



Apparently, this is a feature and not a bug, and is even the first result on the Reach FAQ site:

Q1: The error “One or more players do not have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive. An Xbox 360 Hard Drive is required to play co-op on Xbox LIVE or system link” occurs when I try to play. Why?

A1: One or more players do not have a certified Xbox 360 hard drive attached to their Xbox 360 console. Some multiplayer aspects of Halo: Reach require an Xbox 360 certified hard drive.

The co-op feature is a large part of the Halo: Reach experience, and this missing for 4GB Xbox owners was not mentioned at all on the game box or to those purchasing the game. In fact, NukeZilla even found a retailer selling Halo: Reach in a bundle with the console (although apparently the same problem exists in Halo ODST too).

NukeZilla says that the issue only affects the newer slim Xbox 360's with 4GB of internal storage and no hard drive, adding USB storage doesn't help, and normal multiplayer isn't affected.

Read the article, external drives don't help it.

HAHA

What happened to the rules of not requiring the HD when the system launched and the lack of HD was questioned.

technically they could get sued for that, since it not mentioned anywhere on the product it self.

Nope, MS thought of that. I bet this was a ploy to get more money from Arcade owners.

While my copy of Halo: Reach doesn't list the hard drive as a requirement, it does contain the line "features and requirements may change without notice," which effectively covers Microsoft's ass in this situation.

The only real recourse Halo: Reach players have now is to pick up an Xbox 360 slim hard disk, which retails for $129.99 at GameStop. That brings the grand total for their Xbox 360 to $329.98, roughly $30 more than just purchasing the 250GB Xbox 360 slim in the first place. So much for getting a bargain.

not sure if "features and requirements may change without notice," actually would cover them in this case.

since nothing actually "changed" it was like that from day one, it would be different story, if after couple days/weeks/months then it would change.

They can state that the requirements changed once the service went live. I doubt anyone can or will sue MS.

No they knew full well what they were doing. They know that 9 out of 10 gamers WILL go out and buy the HDD to play. They make more money and that's that.
