Some XBOX 360 owners will be disappointed to know that a hard drive is required to play Burnout: Paradise online. Anyone who picked up the XBOX 360 Arcade Package or the now-deceased XBOX 360 Core Package will have to fork out for a hard drive or make-do without the online service for the high-flying racer.
An EA support representative has said that the XBOX 360’s memory cards aren’t big enough to hold the temporary storage space required for the online play. This isn’t the first time a hard disk drive has been needed for online play because titles such as Crackdown and Final Fantasy XI also require a hard drive.
Are you one of the unlucky few who aren’t able to play Burnout: Paradise online? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
