Halo: Reach Co-op Mode Not Working on 4GB Xbox

If you were one of those people that braved the queues in the early hours of yesterday to get your grubby little mits on Halo: Reach and only have the 4GB Xbox you may have found a problem.

After all the hullabaloo, especially if you happened to be around the capital (mainly Trafalgar Square for jet packs and Shepherds Bush’s Westfield Centre for more Spartan action), has died down surrounding the epic launch of Halo: Reach, the gaming prequel that’s set several years before the events of the first game there seems to be something afoot in Co-op mode.

There appears to be grumbles about the fact that there’s not enough storage on the new Xbox 360 4GB console to that option of the game.

Nukezilla, discovered this issue when they ran Halo:Reach on the new console but on entering Co-Op mode found the following message on the screen: ‘One or more players do not have the hard drive required for this game type.”

A huge disappointment I’m sure for all Halo fans but this problem isn’t unknown to Bungie as a quick click to the Halo: Reach Xbox page reveals that it appears as the number one issue in the FAQ section, which you can see below.

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.

Nukezilla even tried using USB sticks to get around the annoyance but that didn’t work either.

So, the only way to fix this is to get an Xbox Hard Drive – meaning that UK gamers will have to wait till late September to grab a £80 hard drive to get in on the Co-Op action on.

It seems that high street electrical store, Comet, is having a laugh at gamers as they’re selling the 4GB Xbox bundled with Halo: Reach – now, that’s just plain cruel guys!
