I cant say for sure but i recall reading somewhere that Namco is compressing audio and other such data to fit it on one disc, but again, im not 100% sure.

I believe it'll be just one disk. I don't think the open world format will work if there were two. That being said it's not a cinematic filled game, so i think it's safe to say it'll be on one disk.

well the "360 Version Heavily Compressed Onto One Disc"is not right,see this:

even i will get PS3 version,but since Demons Souls only 5.8GB,i can pretty sure 360version will be one disc

all compression means is longer load times. Because compressed data has to be uncompressed to use...

So, compressed does not mean inferior quality, just longer load times.

yeah DS on PS3 wasn't even that big. I'm pretty sure Dark is bigger in size than DS but nothing major. You can do open world games i n2 discs, you'd have to duplicate everything except story CGI/voice etc for each disc. The actual levels themselves don't take up that much space.

Dark Souls will be one disk.

Well if you have a big enough hard drive instale it.It should help with load times I would think.

Well, the game was made into one open world, so there won't be many loading screens. If anything, the 360's frame rate might drop, or menus might be slow. Happy that I'm getting both ps3 and 360 versions. (Ps3 for co-op, xbox for pvp)
