The reason is indeed the exact same as the 360. Its designed to read data from 2 locations to be able to read the textures fast enough. The ps3 version is just 2 disc on ONE disc however it still functions just the same. You put the disc part on the hard drive and you cant load the textures fast enough. Hence why the psn version looks bad.
I have a SSD sitting next to my ps3 have been meaning to swap out for some time now just havent got around to it. I might try it this weekend
p.s. I have fat, slim, and super slim ps3 and i have tried it on my slim and super and both have horrible textures when moving fast.Tweet this!
