It's news because it's very unusual 360 games come on more than one disc.

No, it's news because it only uses 2 discs while the title says infinite.

It's a game that uses cell shading type graphics. This must mean the game is very long in length or they're trying to not exclude those with no HDD in their 360, which the latter is likely... but rotflmao at 2 discs for a cell shaded game though.

It's relevant because of the whole "Blu-Ray is needed for current gen games" argument. But I'm kinda glad that it is on two discs because atleast that means the game will be longer (than Too Human/Mass Effect), but it's also kinda annoying cos the graphics (in the recent gameplay video) aren't great.

But but but but.........

DVDs have enough space for current gen games!

All kidding aside, I'm not a RPG fan so this doesn't affect me at all. Truthfully, right now that's probably the only genre that will need more than 1 dvd

its not the first game ever to go multi disc, i believe ff7, was more than two...and theirs a very large list, so who cares, its two discs, what, this shocking 2 discs gonna make MS bring blu ray to 360, it would be a big mistake on MS part if they did, if you think about it, devs start making 360 games that use blu ray disc, which means anyone wanting to play the game would have to either go buy another 360 with blu ray, or possibly an add-on blu ray drive, and im sure you all love buying add ons.. in the end, it would be a big slap in the face to all 360 users... this is console gaming, not pc....so when the ps3 gets a game thats 2 discs, whats gonna happen then..

Final Fantasy VII was on the PlayStation not the PlayStation 3, in other words two generation ago.

jadenkorri3426d ago

i never said ff7 was on ps3, i was just giving an example of a game that was multi disc, dunno why people are making a big stink about an 360 game going 2 disc..

Does Forza 3 and MLB 2k8 ring any bells?

At the end of the day, its an RPG, so i can take that into consideration

Time_Is_On_My_Side3426d ago

To me anyways it's the fact that it's guaranteeing linear play making the game design limited. They have two choices make a rich looking game on one disc or tone down everything so it can be on two discs. So far I haven't seen a beautiful looking game that runs on two or more discs. Mass Effect is one disc and so is Bioshock.

Who said it was a big deal

Good work Jenzo. Last time i checked i really enjoyed playing Baldur's Gate 2 back in the day on PC. That was on 5 discs i believe and that wasn't a pain in the butt. 2 DVDs is definitely ok.

dale13427d ago

it beats 4 discs but in a hd world this is sad, going to be the norm,for 360 any way dvd is so last gen

Auron3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

as long as it plays as long as its hd I could care less if its on 5 discs, 1 blu-ray or 1000 VHS tapes! ok I guess I'd care about the VHS tapes.

pumpkinpunker3427d ago (Edited 3427d ago )

a 15 minute install or a 10 second disc change? both formats have their drawbacks. the blu-ray is too slow to run straight from the disc without an install and the dvd doesn't have enough space and requires multiple discs for 2 games so far this generation.

anyway, who cares. I find it funny that Sony fanboys make a disc change such a big deal. shows us how desperate they are for relevance. I guess they just like to wait: wait while their games install, wait for their PSN firmware updates, wait for their franchise titles, wait for the cows to come home, etc. gives them a lot of time to troll N4G forums.

agentace3427d ago

how is the blu-ray to slow so it needs install, it doesn`t need installs its just easyer for devs...uncharted has no install and thats th best looking console game out so far

jessupj3426d ago

It's because 360 fanboys kept saying 'You don't need bluray!!!!' When cleary in this situation you do. No it's not that big of a deal and a 10 second disk change isn't much to cry about, but it's still an annoyance and still shouldn't be happening.
