Would make sense if they were running the game at a frame rate above 30 fps. You start dipping under 30, it becomes very noticeable. I just can't see why they would be releasing a texture pack that would be guaranteed to cause everyone that uses it to get bad fps. They said they were pushing the console to the limit, I just don't understand why they would put a game out there looking subpar compared to how they can make it look.
