Battlefield 4 will have some heavy optional content on the Xbox 360
Can I install both the HD textures and the play discs without them shorting each other out? If not, will buy the PS3 version.
the best part is that only internal hdd's are allowed. atleast thats how it was with bf3
it works on USB's too, I got myself a 64GB stick with GTA, Forza4 and BF3 in them, because sometimes I travel to friends houses, my internal HDD is almost empty.
lol what? GTA5 was the only game that had this problem. And the problem was with GTA not the console. I had GTA5 installed on my HDD day one and did not see any problems btw. I bet BF4 is exactly the same as BF3 with the regards to installation of the HD textures. You really should know how HDD's work before throwing in words as "shorting each other out" haha.
BF3 had this problem too on 360, please research before attacking. http://mp1st.com/2011/11/19...
You know this was going to be a monster of a game just because of the visuals. I expected this much.
The visuals aren't that great, 12GB is ridiculous.
Indeed. 10 GB hard drive in mine. Would have to upgrade it to do this. No thanks I have other systems.
2 discs? Lol
Why people are still thinking of buying cross gen games on current gen is beyond me lol. I'm just gonna tap into my backlog and ride the upcoming Ps3 exclusives until the PS4 is bought.
Pretty much what I been doing. The last new game I bought was bioshock infinite. at the moment I play Hawken, planetside2 and warthunder (PC) and BF3 (on both PC and X360) for multiplayer. And my collection of XBLA/PSN downloadable/indie games. its making the wait for my launch XB1, a bit more bearable. But I cant wait to play BF4 with my clan. There is enough of us to fill a 32-man team. Day one!
Indeed, sounds like you need a second life with the backlog you have :P. Mines no where near as bad but it's enough haha.
Greeting for all X360 arcade/core system owners!!!
Install on USB stick, not a problem
You'd be genuinely surprised how many 360/PS3 owners don't have a USB stick.
@barb_wire, usb sticks are dirt cheap now, why wouldn't anyone have one?
This certainly would explain why the BF4 beta looked so poor when I gave it a go last week on 360. I mean it was shockingly poor.
I hope you didn't think the beta was the final look. Betas aren't released for the visuals.
The PC beta vs. the 360 beta was night and day different. That said, It is kind of expected as the 360 version obviously needed the texture pack. I know they weren't testing graphics, they were testing their servers and looking for exploits and glitches. It was a bit ridiculous though just how bad the graphics were on the 360 version. It felt like the PC was at least two generations ahead.
Only two generations? Good work DICE on the consoles!
BF3 only had a 1.5GB HD texture install at launch. That means that 12 GB of the game is going to be loading from the hard drive to install things mid game. I hope they used it for the non moving parts of the game because loading anything from your hard drive can be slower. My guess (and I hope Im wrong) is that alot of texture pop ins and scenery pop ins are going to be constantly occurring.
