it sounds like "blow memory" isn't "take a whole lot of it" but "eat it up like a memory leak,

I don't think it's a memory leak issue, as they could simply fix that. It's probably some combo where multi-shot combines with dual-fire combines with bore combines with a Conference Call, and the game runs out of memory to calculate the trajectory, hitscan and damage of all the projectiles.

So likely with 4GB you'd be fine, but since the decrepit shitty consoles only have half a Gig, they're holding stuff back.

I've fucked around with two characters (Commando, Siren) with every skill unlocked and never ran into any kind of issues, I should try it with the other two as well, see what happens. Offhand, thinking of the skill trees, it's more likely to be an issue for Zero or salvador anyway.


What I mean by memory leak is that, under the right circumstances, it will eat up an enormous amount. As you said, with the Conference Call.

But if it can run out of memory on the Xbox then, under the right circumstances, it can probably run out of an infinite amount of memory. Within seconds. All depends on what we're talking. Clearly it isn't just the Conference Call, even with Gauge's Close Enough, because that's in the game now (though hitting BNK3R with the Conference Call with Bore can sometimes drag the game down on my Xbox for a second or two as it calculates tens of millions of damage points.)
