Halo 4 requires a minimum of an 8GB USB drive or an Xbox 360 hard drive in order to play multiplayer, the Xbox.com Halo 4 product page has revealed.

This means that anyone with a 4GB Xbox 360 will need to pick up a memory stick or hard drive in order to play.

The product listing adds: "For an optimal experience playing with an Xbox 360 Hard Drive is highly recommended."

Halo 4 will be released November 6.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

With 16GB USB sticks readily available for well under £10 this isn't really that big a deal.

Last I checked you can format any usb stick to function exactly the same as the hard drive. but obviously at a slower speed.

Buh, Microsoft letting people use non-proprietary storage formats with a first party title? What's going on here?

What exactly can an Xbox 360 do with a standard USB stick, then? I take it we still can't put demos and DLC on them or anything? Just music and videos. I still have a 20gb hard disk from launch... which has actually outlived all the hard disks I've bought for my PC since then!
