For those of you who are planning on getting Battlefield 3 for Xbox 360, you may have already heard that HD textures have to be installed on your system’s hard drive. This isn’t really different from what the PlayStation 3 or the PC versions do, except that you are given the option to do it yourself because not all Xbox 360s have a large hard drive attached to them. I know that your probably think that it won’t be worth it and that the difference in quality can’t be that great. However, I implore you to watch the above video, because I think it may change your mind.
So, if you don’t have an Xbox that can store the texture information, you now know what you can expect from the game from a visual standpoint. Sure it won’t be as pretty, but if you spend some time to get to know the game, you may find it has a really nice personality. Don’t be so shallow.
