How to save space on your X360 HDD
Have an Xbox 360 where you are constantly juggling items to get the free hard disk space that you need? We might be able to help — you can potentially save more than 4GB worth of hard disk space by deleting a few obsolete Battlefield 3 files. Sound good? Then just follow the instructions below.
NOTE: Make sure to follow the below instructions carefully so you don’t have to re-download any essential files unnecessarily.
These packages can safely be removed from your Xbox 360 hard drive:
Rent a Server/E-sports Update (1.1GB)
Multiplayer Update 4 (1.5GB)
Multiplayer Update 5 (1.8GB)
You should not remove any other files from your HDD as the other packages are required to run Battlefield 3 and its expansion packs/DLC files.
There are 2 possible scenarios to play Battlefield 3 Multiplayer online:
If you do not wish to play any DLCs and just want to enjoy the original Battlefield 3 base game multiplayer maps, you can select either Scenario 1 or Scenario 2.
If you wish to use any Battlefield 3 DLC expansion packs or DLC content such as the Rent a server functionality, you must use Scenario 2.
Accept the automatic Title Update when starting the game (if you haven’t already) and make sure to have your Online Pass installed. You can choose to ignore all of the Multiplayer Updates and just enter Multiplayer Online play.
Accept the automatic Title Update when starting the game (if you haven’t already) and make sure to have your Online Pass, Multiplayer Update 6 and any DLC expansion packs installed that you wish to use.
Minimum required files for Scenario 1:
Battlefield 3 Title Update
Minimum required files for Scenario 2:
Battlefield 3 Title Update
Multiplayer Update 6
Plus any expansion packs you wish to use:

Note that in order to use the Rent a server functionality, Kit Shortcuts, or any other DLC, you will need the latest Multiplayer Update (at the time of writing this is Multiplayer Update 6).

At a massive event held in Stockholm on March 26, DICE unveiled Battlefield 4™ with a staggering 17-minute live demo in front of 500 journalists and community members. Read on for the first details on the game that will usher in a new era for the Battlefield series.
We are very proud and excited to have finally unveiled Battlefield 4. At two events – one held in DICE’s home town Stockholm, one in San Francisco – we played the Battlefield 4 “Fishing in Baku” single player demo live in front of hundreds of journalists and community members. Their impressions from the gameplay reveal will start to hit the Internet as you are reading this.
Bringing the best of multiplayer into single player
Battlefield 4 is a seminal moment for the series and for us at DICE. We have long been known for our award-winning multiplayer. This time around, we are bringing the best elements of our multiplayer into the single player campaign.
This means that gamers will experience huge environments, a playground of destruction, access to an arsenal of vehicles, and the ability to direct squad mates – all within the single player campaign. Battlefield 4 is our most human, dramatic, and believable game yet, powered with our proprietary Frostbite™ 3 engine. This is the engine that will let you own land, sea and air.
Watch the 17-minute gameplay reveal
You can view the staggering 17-minute “Fishing in Baku” demo above. The demo begins as the player – Recker – opens his eyes to discover that he is trapped in a rapidly sinking car with three of his squad mates. Shooting the window is the only way out. Panic and fear are pushed aside as Recker makes a difficult decision – take the shot and recover the intel but risk that not everyone will survive.
