Not too shabby. I was expecting a larger size - knowing that it can be installed to a flash drive is helpful as well.

This info has been known for a few weeks.

The disc swapping and flash drive information is more useful than anything else. There were rumors last week that the size had increased because of last minute changes, but it's good to have a final confirmation nonetheless.

It's about time they did this!! I mean what have they been waiting for? I mean they do it with Forza, why not all the games? If they do this with every game from now on including multiplats then I won't have to buy the blu ray version whenever there's more than one disc.
Great news! Thank you Microsoft for finally using your heads.
8gb is pretty large though, so I don't know what they mean when they say it isn't. Not a complaint, I'm just saying it isn't small, at all. So 17gb total? Nice!

Really more than one disc was a big enough issue for you to choose one platform over another?

To me it is more what that platform offers. Sometimes it could be a preference for a controller, free online gaming or cross voice chat.

Mutliple disc sounds silly to me, but to each their own. :)

I don't think he mentions choosing one console over another based on discs - he just points out that Microsoft seems late to the party.

And he's absolutely right. Why buy two discs when one will do?

But... the 360 has problems keeping up with Playstation Plus too. Apart from console exclusive IPs, a PS3 makes sense for him.

I am glad to hear MS is nicking the disc swap. Well done but why isn't this standard practice on all 360 games that are multidisc? I loved they did it for Forza 4 and have wanted/hoped/pleaded they do it on other games since for both 1st party and 3rd party. Hell if they had this for BF3 I actually might have finished the single player... err...who am I kidding that sp will never get played again.
