PS3 Install Textures Options

This is one the fans having been asking us about demanding for a bit. Black Ops 2 has an option to "Install Textures to HDD."

When we explained to PS3 folks that installing to the HDD wouldn't neccessarily give us any significant performance gains, they explained back that the issue is they play so much it puts constant stress on the Blu-ray drive and wears them out.

Roger that.

It's a non-trivial amount of HDD space to install all the textures. I don't want to get into exactly numbers because anything can, and does change during development.

You don't have to install to enjoy the game. We still pre-cache like we did on Black Ops.

Thanks for sharing that good news with us. Imagine a full install on a solid state drive D

Hopefully its a meaningful size and it does make a difference to the bluray workload.

I got the texture installed on my SSD.

Nothing noticeable.
