Remember last week how it was announced that Borderlands will require a HDD to play by Gearbox president Randy Pitchford? Yeah, that doesn’t seem to be the case any longer!
Steve Jones, the lead programmer on Borderlands, announced on the Gearbox message boards that Borderlands will NOT require a HDD, as previously reported.
Hey everyone, my name is Steve Jones and I’m the lead programmer on Borderlands. While we are doing some amazing things in this game, the Xbox 360 version will NOT require a hard drive. The game will take full advantage of the hard drive if it is present, but again, it will not be required.
So is this finally the end of the story? We know that at this very moment Microsoft requires that all games be playable withOUT the HDD, with the sole exception being MMO titles like Final Fantasy XI. However, that can always change.
