RespawnAction: "Yesterday was the confirmation of Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360 being on three discs. All over the internet this was the hot topic and people commenting constantly about it. Why? This in no way affects the game."
It's just another Reason to Laugh at all them Silly Little BoTs Xbox has no Games !!
Your HD is full of installations and updates now you have to delete to make up space. Loser. edit:@The Iron Sheik "optional" installations
We can upgrade to a 500GB HDD if we need space. And for less money than M$ charges for a 120GB HDD. Too bad you can't upgrade the 360's last gen DVD drive. Loser
there are no installs for this game on the ps3 :) try harder :)
It shouldn't, but it does.
And it won't matter when games are on 10 discs either. Lol people let too much things slide this gen.
Compressed audio and video. To me, that already matters, not to mention the annoyance of switching between discs every now and then.
it was never a problem on any other console. jezzz even the sims on the pc had 4 install discs.or 3 and you played off 1. regardless you still have to get off your butt to change from one game to another.
it isnt a problem because noone will buy ff13 on 360 anyway. on top of that you have worse audio then the ps3 version, worse visuals as stated by IGN, and 3 disks? you have to be stupid to get it for 360
It matters to fanboys only. "you have to be stupid to get it for 360" and you would have to be stupid to listen to this guy if you own a 360.
DVD is ancient tech...TIME TO MOVE ON
However, the heavy compression that the 360 version STILL gets even with 3 discs, DOES.
It matters to people who have both systems, because they have a choice. If you only have a 360 or a PS3 - you'll get it for your system without thinking about it. Unless you want to prove to strangers on the the internet that 3 discs are just as good as one. But no one does that, right?
It only matters to fanboys. If you own a PS3, get it on PS3. If you only own a 360, get it on 360? It isn't complicated. I honestly find it hilarious that the only people complaining are the ones who are buying it on PS3 anyway, who the f*ck cares how many disks it is on 360, we are playing it on PS3 anyway?
its gonna matter when your 360 scratches it.
Reading people pretend it doesn't is funny though.
"All over the internet this was the hot topic and people commenting constantly about it. Why? This in no way affects the game." This would actually be a very sound mentally, if we were all trapped in the year 1997. How can the confirmations of compressed audio and video for the 360 version not be seen as "affects" on the game in association with the Xbox 360 version? Oh I get such a strong, STRONG feeling that if this 3-disc situation was associated with the Playstation 3, these "Oh it shouldn't matter" feelings wouldn't be so prevalent and so sympathetic. I think this is somewhat embarrassing for the integrity of the Xbox 360 console since it almost comes across as people saying: Oh leave the poor little Xbox 360 alone. It's trying its best and the three discs is the best result it could of gotten out of such a bad situation.
Switching discs is a pain.
If hard drive installation is a problem then multiple discs is. Neither is for me. However I am still getting superior PS3 version.
Doesn't matter to me, since I don't really play JRPG. I won't be buying it.... Now happy!!!
Stop being ignorant dude..The game will sell well on Xbox360..not everyone owns a PS3 and the game is not that great that you should buy a PS3 to play it.It's been getting mixed reviews.That being said my copy will be on the PS3 as I love the superior audio and the fact that it started development on the PS3 hardware to begin with..but I just didn't like that you hate on the 360fans dude..Be a GAMER not a HATER!!
It sure as heck does matter to SE who have to pay royalty fees on each disc. Other than that, I think people should be concerned with the huge delay on the game and all for what may possibly be a lesser version on the 360 just so Microsoft can market their machine as having stolen away a franchise that never belonged to Sony in the first place. Oh, and don't give me the BS that Microsoft did this for the gamers, their mind is always first on profit through market domination.
they're only saying that because they knew sony went right when they chose bluray for their games. dvd9 is showing age.
and it still wouldnt matter to me. This thing is gonna be a collectors item I can feel it. The popularity of the FF series is synonymous with PS and yet here we have a major FF game (besides 11) that is being released on a competitive platform. Sure there will be many more copies of it sold on ps3. That's what makes it worth so much more on 360. It will become a rarity on 360 long before the ps3.
Games should be on specially made SD cards, even they're made in sizes higher than dl-dvd now. Card reading is so much faster and uses less energy too. Anyways, who cares how many disc the 360 version is own MOST of us will be buying this for PS3 in the first place.
I love the people that say it wasn't a problem last gen. No it wasn't. But why do you want to use last gen technology when there is a new and better this gen technology.
OMFG!!!! THE WORLD IS GOING TO END!!! The only ones complainig about disc swapping are .... guess who (((((((((((((((((((((( DRUMS )))))))))))))))))))))))) The Loyalist PS3DF !!! Why in da fnck a disc swap is the most annoying thing in the video game industry? Why in da h3ll are you guys complaining about it? What do you die when you do it? OMG! OMG! OMG! Its the end of da world!!!
Thank you very much for your concern, PS3 fanboys. I don't know what we would do if we didn't have you looking after us. We all know that you are constantly harping on this just because you care./s
Let's see, the 360 was released before Blu-Ray and HD-DVD were available on the market and these guys think that somewhere in the last 5 years Microsoft should have just changed their format to Blu-Ray? Doesn't make a lot of sense does it?
Yeah your so right guys changing discs is a major issue! I mean I went to my mates before to play some games. We turns on his PS3 and he still had uncharted 2 in the disc tray, so I removed uncharted 2 put it in its case and popped in tekken 6. Played that for about an hour then decided to have a quick play on Street fighter 4. After that we decided to play some Army of two, to my dismay I had to actually remove the disc from the BluRay drive again pop it back in the case and insert Army of two. At this point I really started to get pissed off having to change discs so much. Changing discs 3x in 2 hours really gets on top of a guy. I was like dude why do you even own a PS3 you have to change discs with a BluRay drive. Sell that and get a PC where play all your games without discs. /EPIC SARCASM Seriously shut up being god dam hypocrites. You all spend 10x more time switching discs to play different games, then a 360 owner ever does for the like 3 percent of 360 games that need more then 1 disc. @tordavis Of course they don't make sense there fanboys
You're telling me I'll have to get off my couch??? THREE TIMES?!?!?! It's suicide time for me, I guess :(
"And it won't matter when games are on 10 discs either. Lol people let too much things slide this gen." Exactly!! What happens then?? Wheres the cut off point?? If 3/4 discs is acceptible then so is 5, 6, 7 ....... and so on. because it doesnt take that long to change a disc. "thats 10 sec to change a disc, thats only 1min out of countless hours" Thats BS and they know they wouldnt accept >4 discs. Why in 2010 do they still accept 2??
Apparently none of you guys remember Star Ocean on the 360, do you? In that sense, it SHOULD matter to non-fanboys (the switching discs to go back and do side quests)! I'm starting to believe some of you have selective memories. And why is it that tordavis only answers anymore when he wants to defend 360 fanboys or attack PS3 fanboys over something like this, but he never seems to want to do the same for the other side? I'm just wondering, because he's being extremely inconsistent.
So game data in comparison: PS3 42 GB over one disc Xbox 360 24 GB over three discs Yes there is a big difference!
MS is going to have to address the lack of storage density. Storage requirements will grow, not shrink. I think they canhold off until the next gen though.
3 Discs is better than no discs. I dont think anyone after FF who only owns a 360 would care about a little disc swapping. Sure it's easier to have it on one, but not everyone has that option. Dont know what the fuss is about, like usual.
It will for me when I have to download 7 gigs of data 3 times. Thats what you get SE for being money hungry pricks, not getting my money no more.
Then why are you downloading the game, moron? You're a hypocrite if you're going to complain about the product and then jack it anyway. Obviously, you want it anyway, so why not just buy it bargain price or leave it the hell alone?
Honestly Graphics where does n4g find guys like you. I could do with some guys to clean my windows on the weekend xD
@ kaveti6616 Where in my comment am I been a hypocrite? I never mentioned anything negative about the actual game. Multiple disks will matter to me because the process is going to take much longer than downloading a single disk game. Nothing hypercritical. Just facts. They'll get my money with VS XIII. I wanted this game ever since announced as ps3 exclusive, I always buy every FF, Im doing this for the fact that they been treating PS owner like crap, they want to make us wait for them to hold the game back unnecessarily so they can multiplat it, then I'll wait more and DL it for the system you porting it to. Just my way of revenge. Hate it w/e, idc. And @ Rush wth are you saying, or you just hating?
Don't rationalize your actions as vindicated justice. SE owes you absolutely NOTHING. If they say the game is going to be exclusive and then change their minds, that is THEIR business. I'm tired of little non-contributing zeroes like you thinking that everyone owes you something. Either buy the game and play it or not. Or else play it at a friends house. But stupid asses like you are the reasons we have Secu ROM and DRM, and why publishers consistently choose to use them in their games.
I don't think publishers using DRM or w/e anti piracy stuff is because of me as I don't play or dl pc games. I just got a 360 last month, and I have yet to dl a game I actually was going to buy, games I dl are games I would never or ever had the intentions of buying, ff13 will be the 1st. What's the difference of me dl a game playing it and me borrowing a game and playing it, they must both be equally bad as the publisher loses money both ways. Don't blame pirates blame Microsoft and nintendo for making shifty systems with bad secuirity. For my ps3 I have over 50 games. + many people own 360 for the reason that u can dl games, I would of never bought a 360 if it didn't or ever buy a 360 game. No reason to get upset, I'm the 1 who should be upset for getting crappy ports and having to pay the same price for the game as the better version, that should be illigal. Bayonetta ps3 $60, bayonetta 360 $60? YeA right... Thanks to Microsoft I never have to buy a multiplat even though I rarely bought them anyway.
Sure it does not matter. However, if you own both a PS3 and 360, which system would you get it for?
Unless I go to Gamestop after taking a few shots of that Mamajuana.who knows what am gonna walk out with..
Its 2010.....you shouldn't be playing 2 disc racing games and 3 disc RPG games, its 2010 for god sakes it was ok back in 1995 but now it looks stupid. 360 fanboys need to buy the PS3 version, go get a PS3 now...
Takes a few seconds to change a disc...big deal
XBOX 360 Jump in...to 1998. Seriously its the 21st century disc swapping should be a thing of the past.
So STFU and play the superior version. I have no problem swapping dvds every 10hrs.
lol.you were born in 1998.so how would you know?
Nobody is forcing you to purchase or accept any of the PS3's exclusives, yet trolling pinkos like yourself cannot stop talking utter crap about the PS3's games like MAG, Uncharted 2, and Heavy Rain. So you're the one who needs to go ahead and STFU.
the disks realy arnt a problem but i have been hearing that the sound and graphics are better on ps3. im waiting to see the comparisons, but being on 1 disk is a convenience so i was buying it on ps3 anyways.
They don't. What matters is the quality of the game, which by most accounts is lacking. No towns? REALLY? Too hard to do in HD? Okay Square, whatever.
Doesn't bother me i love games that are on more discs can't wait DAY 1.
Realy? Come on realy? Them tell us why it makes it oh so much better to swap discs? Come on tell us that great Camp Fire story..Step...by...step, Begin at....."Insert Disc 2"
lol, your an idiot The author hasm't a clue, '3 discs doesn't effect game'. Thats why 360 version is gimped. 1. gimped graphics 2. gimped audio 3. and you have to swap discs As for PS3 installs, bring it on, I'll have plenty room on my 640Gb drive. Jump OUT, play B3yond
For the people saying "no no no it doesn't matter", sure it does not matter the first time you play it but what about the following times? Are you seriously telling me that the five-hundredth time it tells you to swap a disc this will not annoy you? It would me. I know it doesn't effect the game play in the slightest, but it's going to get annoying as hell in the long run.
If I had to swap the discs 500 times I would agree that it's a problem. But since the game wasn't designed that way, no one will need to swap discs more than twice. Disc one to disc 2. Disc 2 to disc 3. Is that so hard? Do you have your mom wipe your ass for you?
What's gonna happen when PS3 games need 2 Blu-ray discs?
PS3's have FAR FAR FAR larger install capabilities. Plus Blu-Ray is scaling in size at the same speed, I doubt we would see a need for two blu-ray discs for the future.
Well 3 discs is still better than 4 or 5 discs like Lost Oddessy had but to me disc swapping was last gen I'll stick to one Blu-Ray disc when this game arrives.
no it won't really matter but if one of those disc get damaged then yeah it matters ALOT. It is also easier keeping track of one disc compared to 3, if you are a messy person(like me).
xbox'ers will justify multiple discs... even though they know better. bitter delusional people.
They don't have a problem with disc swapping b/c they HAVE to disc swap.
Yea, defending this makes me an xbot. But if I go to the ps3 side and defend something there then I'm a ps fanboy. Although you may not believe me, I have all three systems but not many do. This isn't about fanboyism at all.
i too have all three systems... the wii collects dust, the xbox i'm afraid to turn on because it makes funny noises and is itching to red ring (will be the 5th box), and my ps3 plays mostly blurays... that having been said, if you had a choice, like you and i and countless others do, why in the name of kratos would you pick the one with multiple discs. unless you're an achievement whore and have to have them, there's no logical reason to get it for xbox. the ps3 version is confirmed to have uncompressed audio and cutscenes as well... this is a time where you can actually, physically, say that the ps3 has the superior advantage. defending something that makes no sense doesn't necessarily make you a fanboy... it just makes you stupid.
Compressed audio, different engine, inferior textures, gimped gameplay, 3 discs. Jump in.
I just dialed 911 for you whiney bots. Here comes the waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahmbulance
