Well some of you guys may know. Most of you won't because I'm referring to the Battlefields series.
3 weeks ago I bought myself a battlefield game. Battlefield 4 to be exact. and um yeah I inserted my disc and I read that my xbox slim (4gb) can not handle the HD that DICE provides. However I can play any other game in HD except for this one. complete bullsh*t if you ask me.
Now my question is: Will this happen to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare?
Um, are you sure it wasn't telling you that you didn't have enough HD (Hard Drive) space?
There is no answer to this yet, but Ghosts was an optional 3Gb Install.
Be smart and invest in a Hard Drive. It will be your best bet in the long run.
Since the game is made for next-gen systems, and then downgraded for the last-gen, I would expect a mandatory download. If anything, invest in at least an USB.
