@XG247: More details released regarding the size of RAGE.
#WHOA Still want it though. Had no idea RAGE had multiplayer.
Nice. If the game takes three DVDs, its a good indicator that it'll have quality up the ass!
Er....Final Fantasy 13.......
@Shok: Errr, L.A. Noire? RAGE on 360's already a graphical powerhouse and that was since LAST years E3. Edit: Whoops, guess RAGE isn't a sharp game on 360. My bad N4G, MY BAD!
^^I said it was a good indicator..not a guaranteed one. Consider this analogy, reviews are a good indicator of the merits of a game...but they aren't written in stone as the ultimate deciding factor of whether a game is good or not.
Meh, it's gotten to the point where I pretty much expect this to be the case with regards to larger multiplats on the 360. I'm glad that developers are no longer handicapping their games for the PS3 and PC crowds due to the limitations of the 360s hardware though.
How do you come to that conclusion? Doesn't it just mean the game is large? Or are you being sarcastic?
Dude seriously that's not fair! PS3 users pay the same amount and only get one disc but the 360 gets 3! :( (who's raging now? lol)
"How do you come to that conclusion? Doesn't it just mean the game is large? Or are you being sarcastic?" Devs like Rockstar didn't want to gimp the PS3 version of L.A. Noire, so for both versions to be equal, Rockstar implemented multiple discs for the 360 in order for the highest quality game to be the same on both systems. This is a GOOD thing for all gamers.
What happened to MS's miracle compression techniques, where MS said games would get smaller and smaller?
The only way games would get smaller and smaller, is if the money got bigger and bigger. I guess M$ can't convince developers to keep their games 360-friendly LOL
MS shouldn't have been suborn and just went with HD DVD. HD DVD might still be a contender against Blu-ray if they did
It'll still sell more on the 360 so whats the difference? LA Noire ring a bell? Or did people think this would increase PS3 sales? Are people really that stupid? Don't answer that...
@ Active Reload That's what happens when a console has more than one game for users to buy. The 360 sells better for multi-platforms, because they have no exclusives. PS3 exclusives are far better than multi-platform titles... This is easy to keep up with kid. More choice = distributed game purchases.
And a certain someone once said 512kb is all you will ever need on your computer if I remember correctly, and yes I wrote 512KB. LOL, and no I am serious he did say that.
If those exclusives were so better then why do those multiplats sell better than those exclusives for that console...kid?
I don't get why you guys have so many disagrees, it makes no sense on why people are being so hateful toward the multidisk formats. It's not like the original PlayStation or the PlayStation2 had multidisk games. Back then we never saw anybody complain or mock it for it, it was just an indicator of a good game.
the sales are spread between the exclusives and the multiplats, its not hard to figure out and fyi, calling a random guy on the net a kid is ....stupid, think about it
Wow! You guys are getting really delusional. Now you want us to believe 360 games sell more because we have less to choose from? Every single year, the 360 sees more game releases than the PS3; be they exclusives, console exclusives, multiplatforms, Kinect titles, indie games, or Arcade titles. It's a pretty pathetic way to try to explain the PS3's poor software sales in comparison to the 360.
@Morganfell Every time I see one of your comments, I wonder why you only have 1 bubble. Have some from me. ^^
3 DVDs guess it a great collection To have hahahaa
@Yoda, 360 saw more exclusives this year than PS3? Last year too? I want some of what you're smoking!
The attachment rates between the PS3 & 360 supports what morganfell said more so than what your opinion & what you are trying to spread around here yodacracker. Have a read through some recent news right here on N4G and what I posted about it ~ http://n4g.com/comments/red... +Agree/+Bubbles for morganfell & CryofSilence
2006 : Who Needs Blu Ray?
***It's a pretty pathetic way to try to explain the PS3's poor software sales in comparison to the 360.*** Don't usually get involved in these little tirades, but XBox 360 sold only 5 million more games than the PS3 last year (about 3% more) and PS3 is leading by 1 million in game sales in 2011 so far... With less consoles sold worldwide... OT: as long as gamers around the world get to experience LA Noire and like games, really doesn't matter to me if it's on one disc or three, I'll play them how I can get them.
who has the highest selling exclusives on the most active online games(tps/fps?!) I like my ps3 but seriously sony is still playing catch up when it comes to online. Sony has a lot of exclusives to divert attention from thier lack of quality.
It's so obvious 360's multiplats sell better than PS3's ... because they have no exclusive games, DUH. At least on the PS3 you can decide whether to get prototype, or Infamous. Dante's Inferno, or God of War 3. MAG, or Homefront. Resistance or Call of Duty, Uncharted or ... wait nothing compares to uncharted that's multiplat ... But you get my drift. For every exclusive title, there's a multiplat that tries to be as good as it, but doesnt succeed by a longshot. 360 cant choose the superior quality exclusives, so they all have to settle for the mediocre titles.
Thats sound about right.
That's the norm for bigger games, I think...
yep, that's the future of gaming they said
Of course BluRay is better, but DVD is still viable....it's doable. The real Achilles Heal from a developer standpoint is the fact that XBOX 360 don't all have harddrives......That's really worse than the DVD issue. MS really shouldn't have taken a step backwards with that.
Yeah, not having harddrives as a standard is worse. I really can't believe they did that since the original Xbox DID have harddrives standard. Of course, multiple discs will become the norm as the 360 ages. It was only a matter of time before these devs. started needing more disc space. The PS3 has bluray so it won't ever need more than one disc, and, in fact, here lately we've been receiving FREE games on the SAME disc. We got: -free Frontlines with Medal of Honor -free Dead Space Extraction with Dead Space 2 and now: -free Bioshock 1 with Bioshock 3. It's nice to get free stuff. It's really nice paying for one game and getting a FREE one.
True that,.. except they still would have to pay royalty ,.. on one disc less,.. but they would be much happier,..
Just poor design from MS. If they did not want a hard drive in every machine then every machine should have had a better disc storage drive (HD-DVD). This is what happens when trying to beat the opposition to the market and not considering your future market.
@TKCMuzzer Microsoft really had no choice in the matter. They launched about a year before either Bluray or HD DVD were ready so DVD was the only option. Had they waited then they would have been launching at about the same time as the PS3 and would have been at least as expensive. If they had done that they would easily be trailing PS3 sales by 10 million+.
Who cares if its on 3 disks it will still out -perform the PS3 version...lol i'll take 3 disks at 60fps over 1 disc at 20-30fps A_N_Y D_A_Y!!!
@ TKCMuzzer, "Just poor design from MS". You would think that right? But that is what M$ wanted. They appear to have the cheaper console, but then you buy it and you soon realize you have to buy a HDD, then you have to buy a wireless adapter if you want to go wireless. Then you have to buy a LIVE Gold if you want to go online. They built a bare system with a dirt cheap dvd drive as a way to sell more systems and make more money on the poor souls that didn't do their research. Nothing is a mistake with the way M$ operates its business, they are very smart and know what they're doing.
Yea but DVDs are cheaper and have faster reading. I prefer disc swapping over mandatory installs. But then again, I can play my 360 while my ps3 installs the game
Carmack did say that the 360 version runs at 60 fps whereas currently the PS3 version is around 20-30 fps. The Xbox might not have better Hardware, but we have much better software. So what's the point of having better hardware, if your software can't make up for it?
Lots of devs, especially PC based devs, didn't quite understand how to program for the PS3.....that's probably the reason he had to take it back in for another year. I'm pretty sure he figured out how to manage the SPE's.....kinda like DICE has. At anyrate, yeah.....your "stats" are a bit out of date bud.
Same here, Looks awesome. 3 discs? That might equal AWESOMENESS!! eg. L.A. Noire
I disagreed with you but it agreed. Big deal on the discs. Also the myth that the 360 would be holding this back is busted like anybody believed that when the developers show only the 360 version
Excuse me, but most footage shown has been of the PC version.
Lol we all know this game is going to suck. There's no need to try to justify it any other way. -We are watching
1st Day Buy for me, was going to Get it on PS3 ...then lost interest ... But after seeing that there not gonna wrap there game on a single dvd, just to please M$ ' there actually trying to push there limits, I Love Devs like that , i thought devs were scared of the Micro$oft Multi Disk Tax
actually, it's a good thing, like with LA Noire I'll download all 3 dvd's to my HD and then simply just play the game smoother and faster than any dvd or blu ray disc will do:)
how do you download 3 dvd's to your 360. i thoghtn u had to install them
exactly, d/l or instal whatever termanology you want to use, it's all the same. you d/l and play
and some people think that Microsoft can get away next gen with the DVD again. ROFL, they need to buy out HDdvd tech and use it just for xbox.
If they do this, it would be good for piracy protection, since there's a real lack of readers and burners for hd dvd.
They will most likely just bring out their own propitiatory format like the Wii U is doing.
holy crap wow thats just silly
Then it's 3 discs on PC also :(
it was confirmed a while ago. no worries changing disks don't take more than few seconds. the single player is about 15hrs long if you don't do any side missions. also online is combat racing. Who wants the next fallout on rage's Engine?
you might moan its 3 discs but it will sell more on the 360 than the ps3, mark my words.
killershadow117: Back then, multidisks were acceptable. But this is the year 2011.
Just to back you up, back then = 2002 (when Sony had already begun to fix this problem).
hell yea! that like 3 game
Cue the obligatory "Blu Ray FTW bitches" and the "3 disc..meh..its not a big deal..blah..blah..how lazy? blah..blah.."
Was expecting for that. No I don't mind for the 3 discs, not like you guys that can't take your ass out of the sofa.
We can, but why should we ?
Well, considering that at least 60% of americans are overweight, thats the reason people should get their ass of the sofa. Why do you think motion control games sell like crazy? People are encouraged to get off their butt. Now, is changing 3 discs gonna give you exercise? Not at all. But, you did ask why you should get up.
What are the alternatives? Less content? Nope, i'll gladly get my a$$ off the couch.
I like that attitude! Don't try to play Rage on xbox, though...it could be a disaster...
@ lugia 4000 If I wanted to get my ass off the sofa, I'd just go outside and play some ball. So, please stop trying so hard to justify disk changing.
That's DVD for you
Hi Definition graphics need a hi definition storage medium....duh
A storage medium can't be "hi def". It can be high capacity, though.
