In Battlefield 3 Preview event held in San Francisco last night by EA and DICE, GamerZines was told by the officials that users will be able to install HD game stream textures from one of the two Xbox discs.
There’s a voluntary install on the 360 . I think Rage did it as well, where you can install content to stream higher res textures. We’re pushing that technology to the limit, and compared to our competitors, I would argue that we’re the best looking game
IGN reports that PS3 users will also have the same option.
Battlefield 3 for Xbox 360 ships on two disks with endless hours of spectacular high-definition gameplay; disk one features the stunning multiplayer, co-op levels and HD installation content, and disk two features the superb single-player campaign.
The PS3 version requires the same install but it’s all on the one blu-ray disk
What about PC? Do PC needs anything like this? All you need is a powerful machine and console versions won’t get near you.
