Well, at least it's an option.
But for those who want the best graphical performance possible, it really isn't an option. According to Battlefield 3 producer Patrick Liu (via GamerZines ), DICE's upcoming shooter will offer an optional hard drive install that will let the game stream higher resolution textures.
It'll be on the second disc (the campaign disc) of the Xbox 360 version and EA later confirmed to IGN that the install will be available on the PlayStation 3 version as well. However, the way it's worded, it sounds like a required install on that Blu-Ray disc… Well, anyway, an install will result in higher-res textures; that's all you need to know. Liu also adds that he believes they're "pushing technology to the limit" and he argues that "we're the best looking game."
Well, if you're going to compete with RAGE , you had best look pretty special. And don't forget about other titles this fall, like Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and Batman: Arkham City . So, are you going to be doing this BF3 install or what?
