Two disc for 360 and zero disc for PS3. Day one digital FTW. I hope more games go day one digital.
Nitrowolf2  +   976d ago
isn't it DL for 360 Day one to? And don't I have you on my PSn Buddy list??
SOD_Delta  +   976d ago
XBL doesn't gets day one digital (According to a friend). So I could be wrong, I'm not hundred percent if that is correct.

You're on my buddy list, Playing Black Ops 2.

Xbox users have to wait about six months after release for new titles to appear on the marketplace.

For whatever reason this is how MS wants it and they have recently said they don't plan to change this. It must be some type of deal worked out with retailers and marketing.
Fez  +   976d ago
PSN is rubbish for full retail games. They cost like £60 which is just crazy! It's like £15 cheaper to manufacture the discs and packaging, store them in a warehouse, ship them to shops and pay an employee to hand you the game...
chukamachine  +   976d ago
Your right, it's expensive.

But consider this.

Those stores you speak of are either bankrupt or having major problems.

Maybe that's the reason for the high price.
omi25p  +   976d ago
No the reason for the huge prices is because sony like to rip people off.
Dark_Overlord  +   976d ago

You do realise neither MS nor Sony set the prices for 3rd party stuff? It's the greedy publishers setting those prices.
sobekflakmonkey  +   976d ago
Sony likes to rip people off? even though you don't have to pay to play online? and if you have PS+ you get a buttload of free stuff for the price of 49$ a year?

What does microsoft give you? you pay for xboxlive gold just so that you can use services that you have already payed for....oh..and cross game chat....

Ni no Kuni was $55 for day 1 digital, they might start giving more discount incentives on digital purchases like they did with that one.

Well this is pretty pointless now. The next Xbox could have Blu Ray.
sobekflakmonkey  +   976d ago
and Sony would be making profit off the new xbox's sales..
ambientFLIER  +   976d ago
What do you think Sony Vaio computers run? MS software...
sobekflakmonkey  +   975d ago
That's very true ambientFLIER, but while windows usually comes on a computer when you buy one from a store, otherwise its usually a one time purchase, you have to think about the amount of money Microsoft would be spending buying blu-ray tech for their next xbox not to mention every time they would sell a game it would technically be profit for Sony; so every console, every disc that's sold, would be profit for Sony.

Microsoft should start thinking about other ways to hold data.
Karpetburnz  +   976d ago
Just imagine how many discs GTA 5 will need for Xbox 360.
MasterCornholio  +   976d ago
Dead Space 3 being on multiple disks on the 360 isnt a big issue but GTAV being on something like 3-5 disks could be annoying. Imagine having to swap disks every time you changed citys that would be extremely irritating unless they do something similar like LA Noir but i have a feeling that with a game this massive they wont be able to repeat LA Noires splitting with GTAV on the 360.

I actually feel sorry for 360 owners if this happens to them. But hey you get what you pay for.

Obviously, the open world itself will be on one disc. That's not even something to debate. The very nature of the open world game, particularly GTA V with its three protagonists co-existing on opposite ends of the map at all times, demands the world be on only one disc. Besides, it's audio and pre-rendered cutscenes that take up the most space. Think of all the largest open world games and they are mostly on one disc, and the ones that require more than one disc do not split the map. L.A. Noire required 3 discs simply for the MotionScan facial animation technology. That giant 1947 Los Angeles map appeared in its entirety on all 3 discs.

I would bet GTA V ships on one disc, just like Rockstar's other two open world games running on the RAGE engine; GTA IV and RDR. Or at the very most 2 discs, with a one-time disc swap coming at the most natural point during the story. Rockstar is all about immersion and they would make sure the disc swap does not detract from the experience to even the slightest degree. As for a separate disc for multiplayer, I would say no, because in GTA the single player map IS the multiplayer map. There are not as many additional assets needed.

As for the topic of Dead Space and multiple discs, this brings back memories of Dead Space 2. That game was the only time having to swap discs actually affected my gameplay experience in a significant way, and it was actually a POSITIVE thing. I was going for the achievement to complete the game with only three saves, and the disc swap counted as a free checkpoint! Praise Altman for that!

The only way GTAV will be on one disk is if you have it digitally downloaded or you have the game partially on one disc and the rest downloaded. Stuff like audio, texture, etc... Open world game can be very massive in data. For it to be on a DVD disc, you going have to compress that thing to the max. Even if you can the performance of the game may suffer.
insomnium2  +   975d ago

Yeah the problem with multidisc is not swapping the disc (even though it might be a little last genish). The real problem is open world games or games that cannot be chopped to several discs. They need to cut content and corners where ever they can to fit the entire map/game on one DVD. THAT'S the real problem.
g-nome  +   976d ago
Now i'm starting to feel sorry for the 360 owners.
Kurt Russell  +   975d ago
Don't be, I got 2 secounds to spare switching disc... I'll just have a quick cross game chat in the meanwhile.
SOULJER  +   976d ago
This is going to happen a few more times into the 720 gets here.

Over that issue, who cares & how hard is it for people to get Thier lard arses off the couch to swap a fk disc only lazy lard arse complain.
PirateThom  +   976d ago
Probably one disc for the day 1 DLC.

IIC0mPLeXII  +   976d ago
But 360 gets Kinect commands where you can say things like "useless peripheral" and Issac then does the exact opposite what you tell him to do. I would love to be screaming at my tv saying reload and just have him keep bringing up the objective marker.
r21  +   976d ago
I hope they have the Pew Pew gun back in DS3. It'd be a missing opportunity to not use Kinect and that gun together!
sway_z  +   976d ago
1 disc, 2 discs....has anyone heard of full game installs?
Darth Stewie  +   976d ago
Damn the Kinect features made Dead Space 3 two disc for the 360 jk.

Dead Space 2(360) was already 2 disc while Dead Space 2(PS3 w/Extraction) was 1 disc so it's no surprise.
InsaneGam3r  +   976d ago
They Can install disc 2 on the HDD, not a big deal.
sher123win123  +   976d ago
this is what im doing right now

Convas  +   976d ago
There are a lot of pathetic tools in this topic right now. How many games have come out in the past 3 years that are 2-disc for Xbox 360?

And people are STILL trying to make a go of it?
Lifebanisher  +   976d ago
All I can say is ahahaha come on xbox this is like ps1 all over again please insert disc 2 lmao
CalvinKlein  +   975d ago
ps3 is like a 1992 computer with all those mandatory installs to play games.
munish23  +   976d ago
Looks like N4G hasn't changed in the slightest.
Convas  +   976d ago
They've actually gotten much, MUCH worse in a matter of days due to the PS4 tease.

I'm going to be sticking to NeoGAF for next-gen, this place is completely overrun.
munish23  +   976d ago
You get accepted yet?

And yeah, gaf is definitely a better community to discuss games and such. I'll stop by here every once in a while as its a nice place to see news, but then again gaf is probably the best source for gaming news as well lol.
black911  +   976d ago
Wake UP! Alot of of games this Gen needed more than 1 more Disc. But instead of doing that. They just Cut content. THe 360 has held gaming back ALOt this gen. Do you think its a coincidence that 90% of every PS3 exclusive uses over 20gigs of space sometimes.

Dead Space 3 will FEATURE two discs on xbox 360

Dead Space 3 MANDATORY install on PS3

hmmm, interesting indeed.
Oh_Yeah  +   976d ago
Nope.. No mandatory install on ps3. Playing it right now. There's only a day one patch which is 96 mbs.
TOGC  +   975d ago
PS3 has 5mb install.
RuleofOne343  +   976d ago
You don't say , wow talk about a curve ball for those that own a 360.
GraveLord  +   976d ago
Ancient DVD format.

Thankfully next gen both consoles will use Blu-Ray but the Xbox 720 is going to be weak so that will hold back 3rd party games. SIGH.

f***** noobs
TechOne  +   976d ago
Anyone remember DS2 gave you a checkpoint when you switched disc (xbox 360) while going for that "Hard to the Core" Achievement? I'm all for that this time around.
