Oh noes.

You know it's a slow day, when...

#102 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38214 posts) -

Who cares? It's still the exact same game.

#103 Posted by Rocker6 (13358 posts) -

The cows claiming ownages will eat their words when 360 gets the version that looks and plays slightly better! :P

But seriously, this is 2012, we should've been long past disc swiching at this point. MS better fixes this in their next console...

#104 Posted by Vaasman (11290 posts) -

All that really means in the long run is that the 360 discs can tag team the PS3 version and beat the **** out of it.

#105 Posted by rjdofu (9170 posts) -
Is there any mandatory install on PS3 ver? I bet people can swap their disks faster than cows waiting for the install :lol:

Even though PC can use bluray but doesnt because it is a trivial format, it will likely be 2 discs for the PC version aswell, which is also likely to be the best version. Just because you can fit it on one slow ass optical disc doesnt make the game any better.

Unless you get it from Steam which will have no discs. I don't even have a optical drive anymore. Waste of time, money and creates more cables I have to manage.

I love it when cows claim ownage on this. My personal favorite though is "the ps3 uses less electricity than a 360". Is that really an issue? If you can't pay your electric bill, you shouldn't be playing video games. But cows are right though cause my ps3 definitely uses less electricity than my 360. That's because I unplugged it and pi$$ed in the disc slot and set it on fire.

Let's hope it's not Entire Game on One Disc then the other disc being nothing but Language Installers.

Or Go into One Area then Switch Discs 12 different times.

Not really. Well worth it. As a matter of fact, I think I will go but a new one and shiit on it.

You should be giving $700 to Charity Organizations instead of burning those consoles dude.

I know you're just yanking chains here, you really don't have $700 to waste.

Meh, 2 discs are nothing Now, if you had to swap discs every time you get into an area That would be something to be angry for

I am donating to charity. I'm paying Sony for the console am I not? I give them much needed money, and then they give me a ps3. Then I poop on it.

90's tech lol.

At this point in this gen we should have games that span across multiple Blurays not DVD's. It's a shame that devs have to spend so much time and energy cramming every asset to fit into that archaic format. Don't tell the MS fanboys though. The 360 could've had a floppy disk drive and they would still lap it up.

#116 Posted by SecretPolice (21561 posts) -

Saweeetness, 360 gets the best version confirmed. :P

#117 Posted by The_Game21x (26342 posts) -
Oh no...360 owners might have to get up and change a disc for ten seconds...the horror...
#118 Posted by Blazerdt47 (5661 posts) -

Superior X360 version confirmed. You get more value with two disks.:cool:

#119 Posted by RR360DD (11638 posts) -
So for the same amount of money, I get 2 discs and cows only one.

#121 Posted by megadeth1117 (1830 posts) -

Oh System Wars, arguing about an amount of discs, y'all crazy.

Anyway, only reason I'm getting this on PS3 is for the extra missions, the past AC games have been better on 360.

Total swap disc time combined still <<< than waiting for mandatory install :cool:
#124 Posted by DrTrafalgarLaw (4440 posts) -

Two discs, double the risk of scratching them :cool: I kinda miss swapping discs, takes me back to the PSOne-era.
If it's SP and MP seperated, it's rather annoying if you'd want to do some MP after doing some SP...switching back and forth...
I just love lemming butthurt and damage control in the morning. :lol:

#125 Posted by Grawse (4342 posts) -
Now I'm even more hyped for AC3. Finally an AC game that isn't being held back by 360.

It takes you out of the immersion, on PS3...you install it once and be done with it...on 360, as a 360 owner you'd need to move that fat ass out of the crater of what was once called a couch or bed, strain a few hamstrings and a few gluteus muscles along the way to your console due to the sudden increase in weight that needs to be supported, strain your biceps while opening the CD case, possibily injure yourself with cuts while grabbing the DVD, put it in your console and break your couch or bed that you fall back on due to the immense overweight body again. All in the while of being lifted out the immersion of the game. When you're done huffing and wheezing and got renergized by a 40z Coke bottle and some energy bars, press X to continue.

With PS3: Install and play away, you can keep the disc in there forever and finish the game without moving a inch from your position, being immersed in the game the whole time. It's not even know if mandatory installs are re uired.

#127 Posted by Stevo_the_gamer (42654 posts) -
Install roughly 4GB of data on PS3 and wait the few minutes while that installs, or take the thirty or less seconds to swap disks or buy it on PC and don't have to worry about any disks. :]

It might also be available digitally day one. Stevo is just trying to cover up for his lemming brothers.
#131 Posted by speedfog (3060 posts) -

Still pre-ordered the 360. And you know why? It will be the best version :), and it will have better community then on the PS3 for sure.

PS3 involves disk swappage and installing. PC requires a simple double click anytime after the initial download.

It depends whether you download digitally or do it the oldskool way of using discs. Some games on the PC still use disc swapping when playing or installing, if it's just for a DVD-check. Don't forget you need to download a lot of data. >Purchase a DVD (yuck) or the superior blu-ray from your gamesstore, install a few GB's of it to your harddrive. >Download from (the likes of) Steam, can take anywhere up to an hour more, with a few minutes of install. Pick your poison.

If I purchase a game from the PSN store, the process is the same as on PC, Download & Install...no more disc swapping needed. Again, what is your point?

You want to say blu-ray is inferior to DVD's? Anyone that can do math will say blu-ray is better, and the fact that the coating on a blu-ray is much more resilient to scratching seals the deal.

No, I'll wait for the uber AC collection that has all AC-games released on consoles in a year or two.

#141 Posted by marklarmer (3883 posts) -

Link.

I've argued with Lems saying the reason that DVD was a big mistake from Microsoft and they refused. Now look at this! :lol:

It's getting out of hand now.

GamerwillzPS

lol once again whenever devs have problems with the 360s ancient hardware its the consoles fault for holding back the industry. Yet when devs can't even get significant portions of a game to work at all on the PS3s ancient hardware its because they're 'lazy devs'. If this is "Getting out of hand" how do describe the current state of Dawnguard and possibly other Skyrim DLC on the PS3? Both consoles are equally outdated and running into problems on certain types of games. This problem at least seems to have a relatively simple solution.

With PSN, I can download a close to 1.3 MB/s...which is just fine by me. Steam has a higher speed cap but it can also be hampered by the "The Steam servers are too busy at the time, try again later" error.
#144 Posted by wolverine4262 (19090 posts) -
Who cares? The once in a blue moon multi disc game somehow solidifies Sony's need to put bluray in the PS3? What about the FREQUENT longer load times and mandatory installs found on the PS3. How does that improve your gaming experience? Now, I love the bluray player in my PS3. I use it a lot, but that doesnt mean that it was beneficial for sony to incorporate it when they did.

*Blu-ray in PS3* has proven to be (on a number of occasions) quite inferior thanks the poor hardware powering it, and the slow-reading time. On other rare cases, it has been shown to be quite capable at giving the DVD a run for its money and then some thanks to its large storage capacity allowing for additional content (free games), or higher quality audio and more languages. ;D

I just never got into it as I had a backlog too many exclusives and other multiplat games. And I actually do own AC1 and ACII on PC from the last summer sale, but haven't play it yet. As I said, too many exclusives. :cool:

Well then, that's not the format's fault but the blu-ray reader's fault in the PS3. I kept my old PS2 games as good condition as possible but it still has scratches, can't believe lemmings are coping with a format that can easily get scratched and with a console that actually scratches discs.

I've never noticed a cap using Steam. I used to download at 7mb/s before I finished at uni.
