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?

there is no any problem if MS want BD for nextbox

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.

Just this:

Good god... use your brain sometimes, and tell me what happens when you lose the disc for your PS3 game ? OH MY GOD YOU CAN'T PLAY IT AT ALL !!!!!!

If you were smart you would know where i was going with my statement.Which is harder to lose 3 discs or 1?Meaning as like if I have 3 discs and I lose one I cant play the game fully.Whcih if I just have one its easier to keep track off.Now think before you re-post.



that's just way to much for me.



How big is the game for a PC?

If one loses a video game disc they shouldn't be playing video games simple as that. Also don't insult other members.

How hard is it to put the disc back in the case and back onto a shelf when you're done with it?

If you're losing any video game discs (or any kind of CDs/DVDs), then you're doing something wrong.

Well, when you have sibblings in your house that touch literaly almost everything you have and misplace them then yes it is hard.Thats why im fond to buying games that require ONE disc.



Whichever way you cut it the engine is designed in a way you want to have HDD speeds and not BR or DVD. Id have made it clear they advise installing on 360. They've used the fact PS3 has an HDD guaranteed to go the mandatory install route on that platform and of course you'll install on PC.

Without installing its clear you're looking at texture pop-in and reduced performance due to the design of the "mega texture" assets.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...
