BF4

Battlefield 4 has been available in the US for just over a day now and some players have been reporting problems with the mandatory install which is required to play the game on the Xbox 360. EA have addressed the problem and have explained that the data must be installed on the Xbox 360 hard drive and not any other form of external storage.

In a statement made on the EA Support page, Xbox 360 players are advised that the mandatory updates “can only be installed on Xbox 360 hard disk drives, and cannot be installed to USB drives, or other alternative storage devices. Battlefield 4 cannot be installed and played on a 4GB internal flash drive. You will have the option to accept the 2GB install or quit. Quitting will return you to the Xbox dashboard, and you will not be able to play Battlefield 4.”

So it’s a huge baseball bat to the face for those who are still using an Arcade Xbox 360, have a full hard drive, or just rely on USB drives or other alternative storage devices. It’s also a pain in the butt for those with the new 4GB consoles that Microsoft launched earlier this year.

EA also advise users to install the mandatory update before installing either the single or multiplayer discs, doing do will cause the installation to fail, second subsequent installs will work however.

Greedy. Just F’ing Greedy.
Sorry EA, you dropped the F’ing ball on this one. You didn’t fully inform us consumers. You just didn’t. You failed. F you and F your inferior products.

I didn’t see the print on the box and I don’t have twitter and I can’t return this POS game so I’m just gonna pirate the crap out of it and sell this inferior product for 40$ a pop for people who can play it.

We know you can buy a hard drive. The fact is that you shouldn’t have to. I was a die hard bf fan but not anymore. Switching to Sony also. Not that it matters cause they will still make millions

Fuck you EA for your complete and utter failure and terrible idea. This problem should have been on the front of the fucking box in all caps and in Red. Fuck you microsoft for your money scams. Offering a hard drive way to small or way to big to force us to spend more money. Why the fuck would I buy a new hard drive when the new xbox comes out soon and surely it wouldn’t be compatible with it. They have to make all old shit incompatible just to make us buy everything all over again. Thanks for the… Read more »
