Battlefield 3 Offering "High Resolution Texture" Optional Install

Battlefield 3  - 869689

Looks like Xbox 360 gamers are going to be getting up and down when playing Battlefield 3.  The  much-anticipated FPS from DICE will be splitting the singleplayer and multiplayer game modes onto two DVD discs on the Xbox 360.  Here's the catch, however.  One of the discs will also contain a "high resolution texture" optional install, giving gamers the option to install the high res texture pack for better visuals.  Unfortunately, the optical drive of the Xbox 360 doesn't have enough bandwidth to stream the high-res textures so users will have to sacrifice harddrive space for the nicer graphics.  Well worth it, in my opinion.

The Battlefield 3 high res texture insall has also been confirmed for the PlayStation 3.  The optional texture pack install will be included on the Blu-ray disc.

Will you be installing the hi-res texture pack?
