shadowheartsfan posted... I'm willing to bet Versus XIII will be 2 blu-ray discs, and/or FFXV. --- Currently playing: FFXIII, Sonic Colors, Fable II, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Wild Arms 2, Valkyrie Profile 2, Castlevania DXC and Resonance of Fate
^^Versus should be 1 disc, as for FFXIV they only need multi disc, once, like in FFXI, rest gets installed on hard drive.
It's all about CG movies, honestly. That's what made PSX FFs different from single-disc PSX RPGs. I mean, look at Dragon Age or something, there's tons of stuff in there, but no CG movies, so it fits on one 360 disc. It's all real time graphics I think.
a) be cost effective and b) address the problems in XIII then
I'd say it'll probably be no more than two discs, because they might cut down the FMV budget to make the game cheaper/faster to develop, and lots of exploration and NPCs and stuff means it's not good to have people swapping discs when they backtrack
(unless of course they can be like the PS1 FFs, and have the gameworld in full (mostly) on each disc, and just have different cutscenes on different discs).
It better be more than 3, or they better pull their head out of their butts and use a MUCH better video codec. Either way they should use at least 4, but this is of course assuming there will be as much video content as FFXIII had.
" I believe MS charges a lot of money for extra discs so I can't imagine it'd be more than 3." That's the only reason they would have settled for 3 in the first place I believe. But with the money they made they shouldn't be crippling their sequel.
"I'll let the kid who shows lowly noobs what a good game looks like be the judge of what a life is." Fixed that for you. And yes I agree. - zazz8
