Hi-res texture pack would just make things better. Hope one does come out.

I will be PISSED if we have to pay for it!

High res texture pack for the low low price of $349.99

Your name and profile pic brings back memories.
On topic: I really hope there is a high res texture pack for the PC version. March 6th can't come soon enough.

Haha, yeah. It's a great movie. I gotta watch it again. I think I still have my VHS tapes somewhere around here...

They’re only charging £9.99 for each characters hi-res skin.

Edit: The romance element of the game will also charge you real money to take your characters love interest out on a date..... so I hear.

you can buy the world texture pack for only $19.99 and it includes textures for the maps except DLC which is sold separately for only $9.99 each...

Pay extra/month for coloured versions

Well, we have this statement too...!/mass...

Thing is, same thing was asked before Mass Effect 2 was released, and Chris Priestly's reply said a similar thing. But he considered the textures in the game already hi-res, when they clearly weren't.

All we can really do right now is wait and see.

I am not trying to flame here. It is an honest question. Is there a reason they can't release a Hi-Res texture pack for consoles? They have the harddrive space. Is it just a CPU thing? Or something else.

The game as it stands currently runs at 20-30 frames per second on console and still exhibits jaggies and pop-in in a low resolution, so adding anything beyond what is in it would cause further framerate issues.

Consoles are capped out, devs are milking every last bit of juice from them, but I think around the time uncharted 2 came out (october 2009) we saw the limit of what could be achieved this gen on consoles.

Wait, won't the game already have hi res textures at launch??

They clearly weren't hi res in the demo I played...

The PC original release will be dumbed down for lower-end PCs... and besides, consoles will have the same resolution.
