Halo Reach Problems: Freezing and Disc Errors on Old Xbox 360?

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.

If the news is confirmed, it puts a bit of a dampener on what is otherwise an amazing game – the recent glowing reviews and day one sales figures reflects this.

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.

Can any of you confirm these problems? If so, please list your Xbox 360 model and storage capacity below. On a side note, check out a full list of ranks here, and data pad locations here.
