- Some overzealous, click-happy Xbox.com worker bee got caught up in the moment and clicked one too many boxes. Oopsie.
- The game actually does require a hard drive! The HDD-less Core system isn't even available in Japan so this requirement wouldn't have proven to be a burden for that audience ... that and the fact that not many folks are picking up 360s over there.
We imagine Microsoft is reasonably sure that even those who did get stuck with a Core system due to holiday shortages have since outfitted it with the optional hard drive. But what about the gamers rocking 360s sans HDDs. Tough luck then?

[Update 1: The US Xbox.com page lists the vague requirement of "Storage Device" while the Canadian Xbox.com page still lists "Hard Drive Required."]
[Update 2: Microsoft blogger Cesar Menendez over at Gamerscore checked in with the Xbox.com production team and reports back, "It's true, you'll be able to play this game and hack down hordes of enemies, with or without a hard drive. As for the confusion: I checked with the Xbox.com production team on this one, and the site was listed with "hard drive required" incorrectly - now it's fixed." He's right, it's all better. Looks like potential explanation number one was the winner! Congratulations!]
