I have original 360 and my hard drive is getting near it's limit. Can I delete my previous Battlefield 3 updates once I download the latest one without affecting anything? Any info would be extremely helpful.
Thanks and happy shooting!
Don't think so, remember to delete your SP disk if you installed it from the start. Otherwise, invest in a larger HDD
I asked on Twitter and they said that all the updates are required. Others say differently, I'll err on the side of caution I guess.
i deleted old patches before installing news ones and the game works fine foe me
Just get a bigger disk, that's what I had to do. I manually moved most patches but some could not be moved, and these were some old ones. BF3 was smart enough to download all missing ones and it worked smooth ever since. Alternatively have a look what else is on your current disk, several months ago I was able to free around 800 MB which with some remaining empty space gave me just about enough space to install previous update and expansion pack.
Had same problem, pick up a flash drive off Amazon? I've got Armored kill and now End game on an 8gb drive I got for £4.
i got same problem all updates and content takes more space than xbox standard hdd. think this is a major problem that dice should address i paid full price for gameand full price for premium. now you can buy both for what i paid for bf3 only. feel dice needs to make original purchasers something special ie send us a rebate. or arica harbour for bf3 . when do we get bc3

Delete Multiplayer update 5, i had no issue downloading the new patch without it and it's actually smaller.

Really? They said on Twitter it's recommended to keep all updates.
On another note, it's annoying how the new maps weren't included in the new patch, that's 2 separate downloads at about 2 G's each. So annoying! I have a great internet connection and I'm STILL downloading End Game -_-
Can we have an official response for this please - and mark it sticky so it is always at the top of the forum.
You can delete 4, 5 and the rent a server update without any problems.
Aiming is OP.
They need to fix this IMO...at least for the future so people like Carlos can't delete patches so he plays with lower ranked people with unpatched weapons. It's just silly they never addressed this problem, as from personal experience, people who usually play on servers with old patches are people who play pirated games. I had my XBox flashed like three years ago before it got banned and I got the X Box Slim and sometimes you'd be asked to update the game, if you selected yes, it would flag your console once it scanned it. So people decline it, stick with the old patches and go through server searches to find other pirate gamers, ARAGGGHH!
