Assassin's Creed III is Shipping on Two Discs for Xbox 360, One for PS3

#1Paragon57Posted 10/2/2012 4:32:48 PM
"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.

So there's two discs but no disc swapping? Is it MP on disc 2 or something? Their response makes no sense.

Also, this shouldn't shock anyone with the steelbook case which is clearly made for two discs stacked on top of one another.

Do you think this trick will work so we don't have to switch discs?

They put all the side missions and multiplayer content on both discs, they put the plot centric missions and content for the first half of the game on disc 1, then they plot centric missions and content for the second half of the game on disc 2.

So you can do all the side missions/multiplayer at any time without swapping, you only have to swap once to progress to the second half of the campaign.

Put this in your sig if you agree - "probably because mw2 felt like a real sequel and uncharted 2 was more of an expansion pack"

That doesn't sound like what they said. They said "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." They said disc swapping at the end of a chapter is not going to happen. Seems like MP is on its own disc because they said "'We've separated it,' added animation director Jonathan Cooper."

There you go. MP is on disc 2 which is totally fine. I have absolutely zero interest in MP of any kind. It can sit on the bottom of my steelbook and protect the valuable disc 1.
