Fact is, video games are not perfectly designed. Sure, developers can get a majority of the bugs out of a game, and optimize it quite a bit, but at the end of the day there are going to be some issues. Activision already knows that there will be some issues involving the Blu-ray drives and graphics with Black Ops 2, and has already announced their plans on how to fix it.
The fact is when you have a game that’s pushing the limits of 6 to 7 year old hardware there’s going to be a lot of information in those texture files, meaning that your Blu-ray drive will be doing a lot of searching. That’s why Activision announced that with Black Ops 2 you’ll be able to install a texture pack onto your hard drive in order to reduce the strain on the Blu-ray player. Unfortunately, unlike a texture pack for Battlefield 3 you won’t see any improvements in quality if you decide to install the pack onto your hard drive.
Still, this shouldn’t discourage anybody from downloading the update, especially if they have the storage space to do it. It’s unknown exactly how much space will be taken up by the pack, but my guess is that it’s not going to take more than a small chunk of space, unless you happen to be installing it on one of the old, original 10 GB versions. This update is only available for the PS3, so Xbox 360 owners I’m afraid you’re out of luck!
