warning. halo 4 multiplayer requires 8 gig install.
so i still have an original 20 GB harddrive with 1 8 GB USB drive my my xbox and they are both filled to the brim, the only empty space i have is about a gig and a half on my harddrive that is used for demos which are then deleted. so i borrow halo 4 from my friend who is still on assassins creed 3. i see it says download content or install disk 2 for multiplayer after i inserted disk 1. so i put in 2 and the only option is to install. WTF!!!
now before anybody says "they" announced it, where have you been? I'll tell you where i have been, i have been reading some of the previews on major gaming news sites none of which have ever mentioned anything about a mandatory install nor has the final game review i read mentioned anything. While mandatory installs might be so common on the ps3 or PC that they are not worth mentioning, they are absolutely not the norm on the xbox. I think I can count the number of games with mandatory installs on one hand, and the number of games that offer performance enhancing installs up the count by just a few. this is not something xbox gamers expect and quite frankly is going to put the purchase of the game on hold for me until either i suck it up and get a bigger old xbox harddrive and transfer kit, or wait till black friday for a dirt cheap usb drive. I'm not deleting 8 gigs worth of arcade games.
anybody else completely suprised by this?

I'm in the same boat as you, have a 20 gig filled to the brim. But I did hear about this a few weeks ago, thank god because i'm not going to buy it now. Not worth buying a new hard drive just to play the game.
It would have been a day one buy if it didn't require to dl it

Wait until black friday for a USB drive?
Wow, really? Pbbt.
You can probably get a 16 gb for like $15 at any store nowadays (or online). And in this day and age, spare flash drives should be laying around the house anyway.

GET A BIGGER HARDDRIVE.
The 60gb is 30 bucks at gamestop, 18 bucks for another 20GB. You should have more space. Or get a cheap 8gb flashdrive, like 15 bucks.
If this is your only reason for not getting Halo 4 thats pathetic.

I love it myself. Was expecting to have to change out disks halfway through the campaign but got an install disk instead. I wish all 360 games could be like that, where I can install 2+ disks and only have to use 1.
