Xbox 360 Version Shipping on Two Discs

Quote:
"It's two discs on 360 and one on PS3," AC3 creative director Alex Hutchinson told NowGamer. "You'd be surprised what blows the disc. Sound blows the disc, but also videos. What was scary for us was we blew the disc with no... there's only like two videos in the game, the rest is in-game cut-scenes. We were like 'we're still blowing the disc? That's terrifying.' It's by far the biggest game I've worked on."

Exact details on how the content id divided is unclear, but constantly changing discs won't be an issue.

"Don't worry, there's not going to be like, disc-swapping if you get to the end of chapter 3 and having to swap over - that's not going to happen. We've separated it," added animation director Jonathan Cooper.

Pressed on whether Assassin's Creed 3 simply comprises a one-time disc-swap half-way through the game, Cooper added: "No, it's not even that. We won't talk about how it's done... but don't worry about it, you won't be jumping back and forth."
Don't interrupt me mid-game and you can have your disc swap message wherever you like.

Going on the statement "will it be a one time swap?" "No not even that." I'm going to suggest single disc and an MP disc?

That'd be amazing, considering that's always been the best solution yet no game I can recall has done it that way. I'm optimistic they actually might have with this though considering they've completely scrapped DRM in the PC version.

As for the game being multiple discs: couldn't give a rat's ass. If it means more content then i'm all for it.

Same. If the disc swap comes at a logical point in the game, I don't care.

Multiple discs to me means mostly that the textures and world map must be absofuckinglutely awesomely HUGE. And that.... I dig.

I hope this is the case.

Let's hope it isn't like L.A. Noire....

Are you serious? there's no disc swapping in this game since Disc 1 is SP and disc 2 is MP even if there were changing the disc only takes like 5 second.

Forza did the same thing , disc 2 contained a lot of the cars and tracks you just installed disc 2 and played to your hearts content with just the 1st disc no need t change at all.
