The PC version of Max Payne 3, which raised a few eyebrows with its 35 GB minimum storage requirement, will ship on four DVDs, the game’s Indian distributor E-Xpress Interactive has confirmed.
Good thing we don't have to switch them out mid-game.
Damn! Haven't used 4 disc install since KOTOR1 & 2. Probably best though, rather than downloading 35 GB from Steam. Would probably take me 3+ days to finish
I am sure it will be available for pre-load like most games on steam. It's what I am hoping for :)
3+ days for you XD That would take me probably me a few hours at the most.
All the hate for a better internet connection? Really?
._. Get this man a 20 meg connecting, chop that down to 5 hours.
Doesn't bother me, I'm getting for PS3
That's a good way to help fight piracy. Try torrenting a file that size and actually sharing it back.
I think Asia could do it easily with their super fast broadband
Your internet must really suck!A 35GB file its 30-40 minutes download and 1hour to upload on my connection.Fibre 200MB FTW!
I'm talking torrents, you have to rely on others.
lol yeah right. I still think ur cool tho.
ye thats only if it is you downloading it, dont forget the other hundreds of leechers that will be grabbing it off one seeder. whats your DL/UL on a torrent client.
Some dude from Korea could download it and upload it to you faster than you could download it by yourself. Their Internet speeds are CRAZY!
the might PC hahahaha all talk i always hear about the best and greatest hardware but but but its still uses a 1995 dvd player hahahaha @deadlybrand so what i have TB hd in my PS3
But haves HDD,SDD that can have TB of content and dont need to have disc inserted!Not to mention install and seek speeds advantage over your lovely 6 year old hardware.
@edit But you dont have a choice in the matter as you usually need both the disc and the install . So it's a stupid thing to be gloating about . I havent inserted a disc in my pc over the last 5 years , dont need to .
Enjoy your 720p 30fps jaggies.
Lol, 720p. Yeaaaaaa. lets round that down to 600 and be realistic.
Nah, make that 480p, 20fps.
I like how you ignore steam and pretend 95% of pc gaming is not download.. Then you boast about an old pc with a 1TB pc component. If pc version wasn't dx11 and @ a year 2012 frame rate and resolution I would still get it since the ps3 version you only get max payne 3 + dlc for $60 while on pc you get max payne 1,2 & 3 + dlc on pc. And guess what? You can download it on steam! Why would pc need bluray? give me a reason? If it was on bluray all I could do is install it from the disk and throw it back in the box. Bluray is crap for me.. I use netflix. @ChadWarden Let's always bitch about pc piracy but not console piracy. Let just give consoles a pass for some reason. >_> happens a lot. But anyway I hope this is why the game is so huge.. http://pixelsmashers.com/wo...
Here's an idea; go away. Go away and don't come back until you've educated yourself on hardware....like, in general. Nothing about what you said makes any sense.
Get out of here and don't come back...
Let's always bitch about ps3 install sizes but not PC install sizes. Let just give PC a pass for some reason. >_>
Because it's typical to have a 1.5TB hard drive in your computer nowadays.
Erm how about because PC's have had large install sizes for 2 decades ?. There is nothing unique or unusual about a large hard disc install with a PC game. However on the consoles it is different, firstly consoles have traditionally been "plonk in and play" ie you put the disc in and you play your game. An install is alien to that sort of "plonk in and play" philosophy that the consoles have had for decades. Secondly hard disc storage on consoles is still relatively more expensive than the PC platform (since they have to use the 2.5" HD's which are more expensive and smaller in size storage wise). The vast majority of console gamers will NEVER upgrade the HD in their console. After all one of the reasons people go for consoles is to avoid the "upgrading" issue that PC's keep getting bashed for. There are perfectly viable reasons why people would complain about large install sizes on consoles but not on the PC platform.
Most 1TB HDDs for the PC run about the same price as a 1TB SATA drive for the PS3. You can dig around for some specialty shops like Memory Labs but a quick check at Newegg will show you both prices are within a few dollars of one another. And installing a PS3 HDD is infinitely easier and quicker and all files can be backed up and reinstalled.
It takes forever if you back up and restore, though, morganfell. Took me 3 hours to do that with ~30GB of data when I upgraded to my 500GB HDD.
Consoles were always designed to be "Insert game and play" devices. Installs have always been needed for PC. The reason people don't like installs on PS3 is because this shouldn't need to happen on consoles at all since they were supposed to be insert game and play devices.
Console games were also supposed to be patch free due to higher quality control in development...well, that's what they said when comparing the PC to the PS3 and X Box 360 when those two first came out. Now, console gamers acted as if they NEVER said patches is one of the main reasons for them to leave the PC for consoles.
My bandwidth is ready.
my also laughs at 32gb ;)
Hahahahahahaha (2 mins of monster laughing) Mine too @LoveMyKids below Seriously? You need to go back to troll school
The only time i'll need the 4 disks is during installation and if it uses steam i wont ever need them them after that unless i re install it
good to see this isn't some crappy port..
everything is getting bigger and better there days.
Dammit I have a blu ray drive on my Alienware but never used it much. Last disc use was ME3 and that too 2 dvds. Max payne 3 should have come with a blu ray option for pc.
Gotta love PC fanboys! Not me I HATE them!!! Why don't u all just whip your cocks out too and see who has the biggest?
