Halo 3 still has the problem of the game actually slowing down when playing multiplayer when the game is installed to the HDD, will this be fixed on Reach?

Halo 3 came out before the NXE launched with the install option, so Bungie didn't really think about it during development. Now that installing is commonplace, I'm sure Reach will be just fine.
 
(For example, ODST was fine after install)

It depends. If Bungie handles the multiplayer map loading like they did in Halo 3, I don't think installing Reach will be a good idea. In Halo 3, the game cached small parts of the map files onto the utility partition of the 360 HDD, so that it wouldn't take as long to load the full maps at the start of every match. The problem with Halo 3 was that the game couldn't tell if you were running it off of the hard drive or off of the DVD, so if you had the game installed it had to save the map files to the utility partition from the main partition, which apparently wasn't as efficient as loading straight from the disc. We'll just have to wait and see if they fixed the problem for Reach.

Yes it will be 99% sure. The reason that it didn't work on H3 was that they actually already WERE writing some information to the hard drive while streaming maps. This made it so that when you installed to HDD, it had to write to the hard drive AND THEN read that same info from the hard drive rather than write to the HDD from the disc and read from the HDD at the same time. I'm 99% sure they said it was fixed for reach.

Bungie confirmed that they rebuilt Halo: Reach from the ground up, and that you definitely should install on HDD for a faster experience.
 
However if you install it and find it being slower than you'd like...then...uninstall it...you don't loose points or anything if you do.

No because Bungie is with Activision now, so they hate fun.

Bungie said installing would work fine in Reach. It already works fine in ODST single player and firefight.

Assuming that they will have it run as well on an install is kind of shooting in the dark. The game ran better from the disc because it ran from both disc and hard drive. I think there is an extreme possibility that it could still run better from the disc because of the partial install. Two is better than one.

This thread has been done several times already and Yes you will benefit from it, ODST had the support for install and so does reach. It wasn't in Halo3 because it came out before you could install games.

Makes sense to me, I plan on losing a few gigabytes of disk space to this bad boy.
