Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Infinite Undiscovery: 20-25 hours, two discs

Terrible news for immobile couch potatoes: According to a Square Enix representative, Infinite Undiscovery will ship on two discs when it releases exclusively on the Xbox 360 in September. The real-time role-playing title from tri-Ace marks the first game to be published by Square Enix on an Xbox platform since 2006's space shooter, Project Sylpheed.

Shipping on September 2 in North America, September 5 in Europe and September 11 in Japan, Infinite Undiscovery promises an epic 20-25 hour adventure for the Xbox 360. And that's just while you're busy changing discs.

Little less than two weeks.  I'll have to crank through ToV really fast.



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials

20-25 hours is quite short for a RPG but I guess it doesn't include side quests?

 There better be lots of side quests then.



Yeah, I really hope it doesn't include sidequests or cinematics.

 They don't include cinematics so that atleast is a given. The main prblem I ahve with it being a 20-25 hour game is that I usually beat it a lot quicker the devloper expects gamers to do. So i'll probably beat it in 15-20 Hours which is pretty short for an RPG.

Oh well i'm sure it'll be a good game anyways. It'll atleast help to keep me satisfied until I get a released date for WKC(Make it happen at TGS Sony!!!!!!!)

prob not.
Mass effect is a 10 hour game unless u include side quests, which then makes it 25+.
And maybe u will have reason to replay...(which is also why mass effect is longer then 10 hours.)



Owner of all consoles cept DS.....Currently in love with prototype!

hmm I remember reading that LOdyssey was about 20~25 hour game and in the end.. it turned out to be over 120 hours getting everything including achievements

 

so I know (well I got a feeling anyway) that in actuality IU will probably be a lot longer than that.

 



That's short for an RPG. However, there are pros of IU being shorter. For example, the story won't feel so drawn out



20 hours is perfect. I never finished any games that are 40-50 hours. Most of those end up being grind-fest boring backtracking ... no thanks. I will take 20 hours games where I can finish it in a week or two instead of game that will sit on my shelf forever.

Anyone follow this game at all? I read that there is a pre-order bonus but what I found is very confusing. If you have something you can share that would be good, so I can decide where to preorder my copy. Amazon said they will have poster (boo) and a code to download some special equipment. It seems to be the same with Ebgames (which I assume also GameStop) but Best Buy is offering "foil" packaging..what is that??



VERY short.

rpgs are usually over 30hrs that why i like them

i could finish this in 3 days.
