We have some worrying details to bring you now, as it has been reported that the recently released Halo Reach title is causing serious problems for the owners of old Xbox 360 models.
That is according to this article from GameStooge, who state that users are complaining of freezing and game disc error messages on their consoles. Specifically, users are getting a ‘cannot read disc’ error, whilst others have been greeted with a ‘blank black screen’ after installing Halo Reach to their hard drive.
Thankfully, this doesn’t appear to be affecting new consoles, as the old 20GB Xbox 360 Pro model has been specifically mentioned. Still though, any freezing is bad enough, no matter what console you are running the game on.
Hopefully we’ll hear from Microsoft about this and then we can let you know. The problem might be fixed up with a simple Xbox 360 dashboard update.
