must be some drawbacks to the hi res install if that is true. Otherwise they would just release it only

My guess... the high res textures don't load well/fast off the DVD, and not everybody has the HD space for them.  Making it optional is the way to go in that case.

If that's the case you can bet this guy will be loading them
Don't put down the bottle... just tape it to the back of the shield and put a straw in it.  WIN!

There's a ton of new console footage all over the place. Definitely looks better than the beta. Still looks like crap compared to PC but the lighting looks a lot better than beta at least. Lasers in your face don't look like sprites anymore but actual shaders. I'm going to put this thing back on my pre-orders.

Xbox has an optional install to make graphics more decent.
This is the most interesting thing to hit xbox in a long time.

Unrelated but it made me think of this:

All my speculations have been spot on since the beginning. It's a bright light at the end of the tunnel.

And thanks for that Final Hour article link, dmxwyrw. I didn't blink once reading it.

That is interesting... Actually for a while I forgot it was going to be a multiple disk affair.
Ice... 15ml lime cordial... 1 dash angostura bitters... 2 oz 100% agave tequila... top off with sprite or 7 up

I wonder how much HD space will be required for the textures? Awesome news if it makes the game look profoundly better.

I wouldn't think it'd be to much. They said that single, coop, and multi will be split over the discs. So certainly not an entire disc.

If that's the case, I wonder what the PC download is going to be like..

Battlefield 3 developer DICE has revealed the top 10 most-reported issues players have had with the game's ongoing open beta and what it plans to do about them.

The most common complaints include issues with the squad formation system, glitches in terrain stability, problems with the game's kill cam and occasional screen flickering. DICE insisted that it has all of these under control.

Without further ado, here's the full list, as published on the Battlefield Blog:

   1. Lack of flexibility when forming squads: "There will be improved squad functionality in the retail game (including but not limited to): the ability to create squads prior to launching into a game, sticking with your squad when joining a game and continuing together through future games (If team balance on the server allows it), inviting friends to a squad and changing squads once in game."
   2. Regarding additional Open Beta content and fixes/patches for consoles, including PlayStation 3 issues with chat and party systems: "While we would like to patch the Open Beta, DICE is currently focusing its available resources on polishing the retail game."
   3. Will DICE have enough time to iron out everything by release? "Please see General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson's blog post regarding this question." (In which Troedsson wrote, "feedback from the Open Beta will not only directly affect the final game of Battlefield 3, but its future development and support.")
   4. Inability to change settings before deployment into matches on PC: "The ability to modify your settings via the deploy screen has been added into the retail game."
   5. Issues with terrain stability and "falling into the map" on Operation Métro: "This has been fixed for the beta via a server side update."
   6. Kill cam sometimes zooms out too far or outside the map: "This has been fixed for the launch of the retail game."
   7. A bug that keeps some players from being able to sprint: "This has been fixed for the launch of the retail game."
   8. Screen flickering/stuttering. Blue screen remains after respawn. Game locks up after deploying C4 (360): "This has been fixed for the launch of the retail game."
   9. Downed bodies appear to be dead, but are not: "The DICE team has been looking into this issue - which is caused by a combination of incidents in a confined area - and are working hard to address the issue for the launch of the retail game."
  10. Why is the hit detection seemingly different from Battlefield: Bad Company 2?: "The netcode is one of the many things that we are testing as part of the Open Beta and is not necessarily reflective of the final retail game. The DICE team appreciates and has heard the feedback you've provided and is further optimizing online play."
