It's also a bit inaccurate. I get better graphics stability with the textures installed. Also, it improves on the disk drives performance, as it doen't need to run hardly as much. Honestly, I have experienced almost no issues with freezing. When it has happened, it while I'm split screening with my brother-in-law. I can also tell when someone hasn't installed textures, as I can hear their PS3 over their mic. Needless to say, I don't agree with that article.
