L.A. Noire to ship on 3 discs??
The upcoming game L.A. Noire is getting ready for a big release. Rockstar Games & Bondi studios have teamed up to bring you something different yet very familiar. That is sort of the same story that goes on at Microsoft regarding the Xbox 360.
The Xbox 360 version of the game is set to be shipped on 3 discs due to the game being 25gb in size. The 360 uses the DVD format which one DVD can only hold around 9gb. The PS3 uses a Blu-Ray disc which holds anywhere from 25gb to 50gb.. I'm not certain about that because the technology keeps evolving.
This puts Microsoft in familiar territory as they have had this issue with past games, but the question is; will it be a problem? Nobody is sure yet as the game is yet to come out and reviews have not been finalised. However, with rumours swirling about a new Xbox console coming towards the end of 2012, Microsoft may not have this issue for much longer if their next console updates the drive to support a new format.
We'll have to wait and see how this affects the game when it comes out. L.A. Noire is set for release on the 17th of May in North America & the 20th of May around the rest of the world.
