Battlefield 3 HD Texture Pack Leaves Xbox 360 Arcade Owners With Last-Gen Graphics

The 1.5GB HD Texture Pack is simply too big for the Xbox 360 Arcade models that pack a meager 256MB of on board storage.  This will  undoubtedly leave many Xbox 360 owners who got in at the $199 price point with last-gen graphics on their new copy of Battlefield 3.  It also leaves owners of the 4GB Xbox 360 with very little wiggle room.

However, there are a couple of alternatives for these people.  They could overpay for an official Xbox HDD, or use a USB memory card.  In a somewhat recent update, Xbox 360 owners can now format up to 16GB of an external USB HDD for use with their Xbox 360.

So you can't go to Newegg and pop in a Western Digital HDD into your Xbox?  What about PS3?  They have to be official HDDs?

Yeah, it's Microsoft's usual proprietary bullcrap when it comes to hard drives. Anyway, there shouldn't even need to be a HD texture pack in the first place, it should be on the disc, unless its part of a DLC pack. Not enough space on the one disc? Ship the game on multiple discs, it never stopped Rage.
