Exact same thing happened with LA Noire. These games push the consoles to their absolute limits. It's a grey area on who's to blame. All models of the Xbox are supposed to work the same. There's not different versions of games for different models. So of course Rockstar will blame the consoles. I feel for you guys. There won't be a patch.
I have a 250gb hard drive too. I have both disks installed and haven't had any freezing problems as yet. I had noticed the texture pop in thing but it never bothered me until I started reading about it on these forums. If I install to a USB stick does it remove this issue completely?
I don't fully understand. Surely the game is better installed to the hard drive then running straight from the disk? Also, if Rockstar recommend not installing the second disk then why are people using USB drives? Can someone explain the difference please? And why didn't Rockstar give us this information before?
