Halo 4 Multiplayer Requires 8GB of Storage Space

If you're planning on picking up Halo 4 when it launches this November - and if you own an Xbox 360, why wouldn't you? - it looks like you may need to do a bit of spring summer cleaning on that hard drive of yours, as the game's multiplayer will require that you have 8GB of free storage space.

Microsoft made the announcement on Xbox.com, saying: “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. For an optimal experience playing with an Xbox 360 Hard Drive is highly recommended.”

Those of you who were hoping to get away with just the 4GB model, I'm sorry but you'll have to upgrade if you want to get in on the multiplayer. With a total of 10 multiplayer maps ready to go at launch, as well as new Spec Ops content coming every couple of weeks, there will be plenty of Halo gaming goodness to make the hard drive purchase worth your while.
