3 Discs...?Thats sad next gen my ass ._.

I generally don't think of disc capacity as a "next gen" feature...Then again, CGI pointed out it is a 21 GB game.

Yeah, considering games in the PS1 era came on multiple discs, it isn't anything new. What's new is the fact that Sony opted to use Blu-ray for this gen, which means it looks that much better to be able to fit the bigger games on one disc. If they didn't use it, we'd be seeing the same complaints as with the 360, with multiple discs. Game sizes aren't getting any smaller, so if it needs multiple discs, then I don't see the problem, as it isn't a problem getting up and swapping discs. The only problem would be if you needed to do it every single time you wanted to go back to an older area (didn't Star Ocean 4 on 360 have this problem; I remember some game on 360 did), which doesn't seem to be the case with Rage.

Now here the problem with multiple discs people say its no big deal but, they are completly wrong.What happens when you lose one of the discs?You cant play the game to its full extent.You would hvae to buy the full game again because im pretty sure they dont sell the discs seperately.This is why when a game comes with multiple discs 3+ I buy it on PS3 less of a hassle.

I do agree it's a lot more convenient to have everything on 1 disc instead of 2 or 3, but i still don't necessarily see it as a characterization of "next gen." I mean it's still essentially the same game whether you get up and change a disc or install 8 gbs to your system. :P

Also, I can say that it would annoy me to have to switch discs to go back to an old area but otherwise, I really don't mind.



3 disks not a chance

at least one is for multiplayer though and no disk swapping for backtracking

game looks good but no more shooter types for me, il get it in jan sales



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

It sucks how the dvd format that Microsoft holds such minimal space, I wonder what they'll do for next gen, maybe grab some stock on the blue ray market?

Imagine not having GamePass on your console...

They better not use the GT5 installer, then it would take 90 minutes to install.
It's still at least a 20 minute install (8gb at max read speed of 54mbps)
There better not be a 1gb day 1 patch as well...

I switched to consoles because it used to be buy a game, stick it in, and 30 sec later you're playing.
PC gaming is currently more convenient again with background steam auto updates and way faster loading speeds.



Install sizes are as unimportant as number of discs.

Whatever devs need to make the best game possible.
