According to Redbox, Max Payne 3 will be two discs and both will be needed for singleplayer on the Xbox 360.
Threads like this are the reason I come to N4G EDIT: Now for my(as usual)logical reaction. This is a GOOD thing for the industry because it shows that we are being held back by the DVD9 format. I hope that the Xbox 720 and the PS4 sport nothing less than Blu-Ray format for their games.
I'm probably gonna go with the PS3 version this time around. Edit: O.O....After years of saying Blu-ray is useless, LOGICWINS admits that the DVD9 format was holding gaming back (FF13 multiplatform rants) and hopes that the next gen consoles support it. Funny.
Dante, The first disk will be the campaign and the second disk will be the multiplayer.
"After years of saying Blu-ray is useless" ROFL...and I assume you have evidence(old comments) to back that up right? Oh N4G, your deluded world brightens up my afternoons =) EDIT: *looks through old comments* "Damn sun, can't find nothin!" *disagree*
Well, Dante, sometimes something is useless during one point in time and then becomes useful later on. Either way, I don't think Logicwins ever made a post saying BluRay was useless.
I really hope the next gen consoles do support bluray or have something that allows the developers to have more space for game. @ Logic You and I both know that I'm not gonna scan through hundreds of pages of comments to prove anything to you. Half the people here have already witness your FF13 rants before anyway. @ kaveti "Well, Dante, sometimes something is useless during one point in time and then becomes useful later on." How was blu-ray useless at one point though? It always had it's uses.
How was bluray ever useless?? If anything it was too useful..
"If anything it was too useful.." That's the same as saying it was overkill. I should have phrased it differently. Blu-Ray wasn't useless, it just wasn't used by the majority of developers out there. Sony Santa Monica and a whole mess of other Sony studios took advantage of Blu Ray for uncompressed audio and higher quality cutscenes, but most developers didn't really take advantage of it at the beginning of the generation. About midway through we read from interviews that the DVD was beginning to restrict their development, but because publishers were more than satisfied with cutting content and selling it back to us as DLC, the need for Blu Ray was once again delayed. It is only now when larger, more ambitious titles are being developed that DVD is becoming an issue, and that's usually with open world, free-roam games or games with expansive multiplayer modes like Halo or Battlefield. It's pointless to criticize DVD now when both it and Xbox 360 are on their way out. The complaints are being addressed with a new console.
I'm saving this thread for the head2head comparison. Blu-ray hasn't helped in most of those scenarios, lol.
Blueray was pretty much useless this gen as the ps3 read speeds are so slow that you can easily change a disc in a few seconds compared to 20 min mandatory installs. Next gen bluray is welcomed as the speeds will be quicker eleiminating the pre installs. The 360 speeds have been fast enough to play any game off of disc even if every machine had a hardrive.
Funny console gamers tend to make such issues over number of disks and disk read times. Yet they are fine with sub 30fps, sub hd graphics(on most rockstar games).
isn't constantly running from the cd drive a bad thing, especially when it's reading faster? It basically wears out the drive overtime. It's always good to install the game.
Oh my gad! People, I'm going to have to lift my lazy azz of the couch after hours of play, to change disc ! Oh Lawd, someone hold mehh!
@Moncole It won't, as per the dev, half of the campaign and the full multiplayer on disc 1, the rest of the campaign on disc 2. You will need both discs together if you plan to finish the campaign mode.
@ WrAiTh Sp3cTr3: media format is irrelevant, actually. given that their last effort (L.A. noire) was the better of the two (PS3/X360) versions, i'm willing to bet that MP3 will be pretty amazing on PS3 as R* has shown to be fairly good at developing for that system. i'm also certain that coming out with a PS3 exclusive (i.e. agent) helps with one's understanding of how things work. @ reynod: funny PC elists tend to beat that dead horse of theirs.
This won't change anyone's mind. Max Payne 3 on 360 will lead all platforms in sales. Two discs isn't a game changer when you offer the best controller with the best online service in Xbox Live. Not to mention the better quality version which always seems to be the case when comparing 360 and PS3 multiplats.
I was going to buy it on PS3 anways..
idk about the rest of you but more disc's makes me feel like im getting more.
I'll put in a request that they also put it on 700mb CD's then. ;-)
AAHAHAHAHA! that was funny! if you said that in the PS1 era i would have supported you bro;)
Hah, i feel ya.
More tangibles ftw!
More exercise ftw!
Agrees with Logicwins, especially now that faster BD lasers are easier to come by and have better constant read/write rates than the ones in the PS3 and are more comparable to the high points of the variable speed rates of DVD9.
They can release PS2 version like xbox360....
That' why i buy all the rockstar games for ps3.. i bet gta 5 will be 2 or 3 discs on 360 too :/
Yes. I think this pretty much confirms that GTA V will be on 2+ discs for the 360. It doesn't matter to me anymore - I enjoy the experience that I get from not having to change the disc. Take from that what you will. As someone with the ability to do other things than wait for something to install, mandatory installs have zero impact on me or my 500GB hard drive.
LA Noire was 3 discs so I'd expect GTA 5 to be around the same.
So long as they don't screw up the ps3 version, I'll get that. All I really care about is the campaign.
And just like Read Dead Redemption & GTA 4 it will likley look and play better on the 360. The only reason LA Noire was slightly better on PS3 was because it was programmed for the PS3 from the beginning as it was originally meant to be an exclusive. People here can be a fanboy all they want, but the pictures don't lie: http://www.lensoftruth.com/... As for me, I don't have some mystical allegiance to any certain hardware, I will play it on whatever console it looks better on. Unlike most of today's generation, I'm not to lazy to get up and change a disk that takes less than 5 seconds. Hell people now days don't even want to leave there house to buy a game... it's stupid. And this is a rather stupid thing to argue over.
