Halo 4 multiplayer requirements skyrocket

It appears that users hoping to play the Halo 4 multiplayer mode in the near future will perhaps be needing to clear out some space from their system first, as "at least an 8GB USB flash drive or an Xbox 360 Hard Drive" will be required to take action. This word comes from Xbox's official feed in which they also say they "highly reccommend" the hard drive option for those seeking out a fully "optimal" experience. Good games and good graphics don't come cheap!

This next-generation blockbuster game will be popping up on the 6th of November this year and will be the first person shooter to beat for the holiday season. The folks at the Xbox.com blog have suggested that you pick up an official Xbox 360 USB Flash Drive by SanDisk, but remind you that you're also perfectly welcome to format one of your own USB flash drives for use with your Xbox 360 instead.

The folks responsible for this update have also shown off the Xbox 360 320GB Media Hard Drive, this also ready to rock for Halo 4. The hard drive spoken of also comes with LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (as a downloadable game from Xbox LIVE) as well – so get to swinging your light sticks!
