VG247: Square Enix has told VG247 that the 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII will ship on three DVDs in March.
Thus the probability of catching RROD is increased by 300 percent.
Get a life troll.
Yeah. One month after....360 sells increase by 300% only in NA. porr patcvhstation fail frodidsllolol 1.5 BUGGAFIRMWARE
well microsoft will be happy charging the developer 3 times over for extra disks. its how microsofts entire model works, milk anyone anyway possible. Be it the fans, be it the developer lol they dont care.
I think the money that Ms paid for ff13 offset the disk. That what a lot of people don't realize that there is a royalty fee paid on every DVD or Bluray. DVD is holding this gen back because DEV has to make a decision to either cut the game or pay the royalty fee for the next DVD.
here what a bot would say 'buh buh 3 for the price of 1' lolz
This never gets old. @below: For most, yeah. I still find it funny.
When multiple people on multiple websites link the same picture it gets pretty old.
Gets old? You mean like the "PS3 has no games" and the "PS3 is teh doomed stories"? How about the "Should Sony quit gaming" stories? Wait, even better, let's look more recently about the anti-God of War stories or the "Heavy Rain is bad for gaming/your life/spotted owl/acne/the rainforest" articles..

QFTMFT You said it man and I quote it for truth. This is a pathetic shame on MS and their inability to release a quality, future-proof console that is based on innovation and not a quick jump lead in sales. Sony released to us a quality console that has the latest tech in it and it is showing now that it is the console truly worth it's price. Shame on MS for taking the quick way out.
in the reviews as it's clearly the inferior version. I won't hold my breath though.
I mean, I know it has never happened in the history of gaming has it. Wow. Some how I seem to remember swapping discs on my ps2 for a few games, or maybe I was dreaming. The only ignorant thing about this is that you can't install the two other discs, now that is retarded. It should be an option. More people would buy the overpriced hard drives so it would be a win for Microsoft. You would think a company like them, that makes money no matter what, would figure that out.
Maybe they'll release a patch so gamers can install it. Just like with that witch game on the PS3.
I don't think they will take off any points from the 360 version. It will be a little worse than the ps3 version, but reviewers normally don't care. It's not like it's Bayonetta PS3 LMFAO
I doubt it will be anything like Bayonetta since SE has been working on FF 13 for more then 5 years I expect it to have efficient programming for the loading of the game :D
Now that Final Fantasy is no longer an RPG, but a linear Adventure game, you won't have to worry about swapping discs so much. At least there's Bioware who knows how to deliver the goods without sacrificing quality. Squaresoft, I hate to say it but you have been dethroned and XIII was the nail in the coffin.
now that's old school.
3 disks... Westernisation... No towns... Linear... Less content... What happened to Final Fantasy? Well, hopefully FFvs13 will do justice for the fans, because this game clearly doesn't =/ especially on the 360
I'm sorry for my ignorace but what "PS2" games did you have to swap disc on? Personally, I haven't had to swap disc since the PS1 days. In any case, I don't know why anyone cares the number of disc this game comes on, unless you're a pirate and want to know if it's worth the 3 dual layer disc. It's on 3 disc, WHO CARES? The only thing we (PS3 gamers) care about is if production of a 360 version of this game really held it back. (most of us still believe it did)
This is the reason why FF13 don't have towns. Fact.
.... hey gotta do what you gotta do .. baahahahahahaha. N1 Danteh .. .I needed that after this sh!tty day I had ... LOL
cuz theyre going to compare the ps3 version to uncharted 2.....remember guys no matter how better a ps3 multiplat is vs the 360 version, the ps3 will get a lower score cause its judged more anally. the ps3 is like the second born son that has lots of potential so they put really high expectations in them while they just give up on the first born son....
3 discs > 1 disc ...oh wait ^^
All I know is that the ps3 fanboys are popping boners over this issue lol. Who cares if it has 3 discs, did you guys complain when ff7 had like 3 or 4 discs...didn't think so. And if it turns out to be a great game, 3 discs shouldn't matter get over it
They confirmed about a month ago that they removed a hell of alot of content from FFXIII on both versions. Enough for another game infact. Its a shame really.
This is why it had no towns??? FFVII had 3 discs and I suppose that had no towns either eh? I too am all for hating MS for paying SE to ruin FFXIII. But some of you guys chat crap.
I hope it is not that bad for 360 users.
in the reviews as in clearly inferior version. I wont hold my breath though.
You act like this is the first time in history that a system has had games on multiple discs. The only problem I have is that you can't put all 3 on your hard drive and then not swap, to me that is stupid.
It wont lose any points. They might even call it the superior version.
At most it will probably be the same case as Modern Warfare, Dead Space, and Devil May Cry 4 it will just look exactly identical to the PS3 version so it gets the same score. Only time a 360 game lost points was with Dragon Age Origins by like .5 on the review score. Now see this is why I hate numbered reviews why can't we all just use the star system like movies?
some reviewers docks score for ps3 having to install so they should dock for 3 discs but those reviewers are of course 360 biased so I wouldn't hold my breath.
10 second swap every 20 hours there is no reason to complain.
You may have to swap back to previous DVDs...its been known to happen.
Not just with this game but this issue is going to get worse over time. It will be 3 discs now, then 4 discs, then 4 with a mandatory install and not all 360 owners have hard drives. Microsoft is working on a way around it or doesn't care because of the very soon Natal casual gamer push.
"You may have to swap back to previous DVDs...its been known to happen." Just like ME2. Please insert Disc 1. WTF. I'm on Disc 2, I thought I was done with Disc 1!
more plastic more pollution its bad for the enviroment =/ (i'm not joking here...it really is)
double post -_- sorry
Haha. That was a funny/cute/sad comment with your profile pic. On topic: I guess it's a throwback to the good ol' days. I remember it being kinda charming but painful. I always loved picking up games with more than one CD. It was unheard of and I thought that Im getting my money's worth cuz it's going to be a crazy long game. When it came down to swapping discs though.... :/
.....i own both consoles...... put it like this.... no what multiple disc games for the 360 come out for the next 5 years.....the time swapping disc still wont add up to the time i wasted sitting and waiting for my ps3(in the beginning) games to install probably a good 10 hours (if not more) or so ROFL nothing like getting a new ps3 game at a midnight launch and getting home and waiting a hour to play...FFFFFF THAT!!!!! SPIN THAT ONE ....and i will be getting FF for my ps3
"10 second swap every 20 hours there is no reason to complain. " Wow That means 1 disc lasts longer than the entire Mass Effect 2 game that's impressive.
as long as it performs like the ps3 version i dont see any reason to not get this game for the 360. having said that i highly doubt this game will perform as well as the ps3 version will. just sayin though
I think the 360 version will be just fine but if you have both consoles, there's really no reason to get it.
Theres nothing wrong with Dvd format and 3 discs i remember in the past i changed discs for ff7 The only downside is that if 1 gets scratched bad then thats the consequence. Either get refund,trade-in or buy a new disc or new game. So it haves its pros- and cons- pros - Makes you wanna keep going and going to fill the fullfillment. cons - scratched discs, getting up from a distance to change discs, years to months later after the game is finished you dont really want to go thru the full game again knowing u have to change the discs = being too lazy.
One disc can scratch too, youre still gonna have to switch disc's when you want to play another game. And if a one disc game gets scratched, you cant play it anymore either.
Blu-Ray discs are FAR less prone to scratching than DVD's, so your point is moot
Although blurays are less prone to scratches, when scratched, they are completely ruined opposed to DVDs that can be resurfaced. This game will both look and run great on 360, so no worries here.
Yeah, it will look great and run great, but it will not be as good. People knock the sound saying its not that important, but the sound of the game or movie make the experience. Watch a movie in the theaters with a bomb system and one with a cheap system and you feel the difference. For those who do not have surround sound, buy surround sound for your games, you will love it, it is worth it. For anyone here who says that the sound isn't important, than you are missing out or fooling yourself.
@ likedamaster ~ "Although blurays are less prone to scratches, when scratched, they are completely ruined opposed to DVDs that can be resurfaced." WRONG. A BD can be repaired just the same as a DVD. Please stop posting misinformation and false statements just to spread unsupported & unproven FUD. http://www.diskdoctor.com.a... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ele... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBay... You can even go to almost ANY Blockbuster, CompUSA, BestBuy or similar store and they will do the same for a fee. Your bias & lies are clear.
yea .. I remember those days ... think it was Parasite Eve .. my second disc got messed up my sister ... couldn't beat the game ... was so annoyed ..and back then buy games was limited in my household .. so yea. now it really doesn't matter ... I mean finished FFXIII already on ps3 .. and it's just tough to go back to doing that; perhaps the younger gamer generation wouldn't care? WHATTA MEESA' SAYIN? Dey Don' know about da Disc a swappin!!! :D
It is more likely to have one disc in three get damaged than a single disc. Do the math.
if this was the other way around, and the ps3 version had multiple discs of an xbox game, i guarantee the xbox fanboys would be making so much fun of the ps3 fanboys. but now all they can say is that swapping the discs isnt a big deal, and that ur lazy if u complain. too funny. i dont care cuz i have both systems, and mostly play fps online on the 360 and sports games with the ps3. but i just find this to be funny.
I think that if a game did release on the PS3 on multiple discs 360 owners would be justified to jab back considering how much of a big deal is made of the issue by so many PS3 owners. And it is such a non-issue, especially if someone wasn't going to buy it for 360 anyway. People swap discs every time they change games. What's the difference? Over the life of the game someone who gets this on 360 is going to spend less time swapping discs than someone who gets this is going to spend waiting on the install.
not if they install it on the 360 as well, but then again, not everyone has a hd. think of it like this. if a game does take up multiple blurays, then how many discs would the 360 version be. especially considering that ms also considers their system to be on a 10 year cycle (or something like that). since games are always getting bigger and more complex, future games could be 6 or 7 discs, who knows.
cause the Bluray can hold more than 100Gb and the PS3 is compatible with it...
i was thinking the same point =) people are so quick to say " its ok!!! i dont mind" but if it were the other way around, it would be a flame fest lets face it...the tables have turned since 2007 and now, its coming back around =)
...most people who say that have had to do disc swapping in her past and it's really not a big deal (until disc two get's scratched). yet, both of you have a point .. in this day and age, with the hardware we have disc swapping is old school for a new game like this. I don't think gamers picked up the 360 to swap discs anyways ... and if they are say they did, then you know that they are liars. :D
here comes the hate
I have been playing Mass Effect 2,and I had to change the disc twice, didn't bother me one bit.It didn't take nothing away from the experience,or how much I have been enjoying the game. And changing Disc 3 times wont bother me at all.
3 disks means changing disks 2 times (inserting 3 times) omg I hate myself right now,xD its not that important.. anyway the game is linear , and there is no town,openworld what so ever.. so not a huge problem .. I prefer one anti-scratch disk over 3 scratchy disks.
I'm pretty sure you can manage to change the disc a few times. If not, shame.
So i am gonna have to switch a disc once every 10 hours of gameplay? Theres are days that i play 3 different games, il have to switch disc's for that too, and so do ps3 users. You aint gonna make me believe that ps3 users play one and the same game only, what if you wanna switch between MAG and Heavy Rain? Are you gonna cry and pray that the disc switch fairy will arrive to do the job for you?
Actually I've heard the game is around 60 hours so figure one swap every 20 hours.
So any normal human being with a job, that plays 1 hour a day, and about 3 on weekend days, will actually have to switch a disc once every 2 weeks......................... ...... ................ from now on i am just gonna laugh at every person who badmouths multiple disc games, its a retarded argument.
The days of disc swapping need to end... It may not affect this game (it sounds painfully linear anyway), but in future it WILL limit some games (Rage seems like a prime candidate). So while I have no issue with disc swapping right now, I think people need to face up to the fact that having a game on one (big) disc opens up more potential for those developers who want/need it. Disc swapping IS a limiting factor in planning/developing a game for some developers ambitions.
