even though i always prefer 1 disc over having 2, no big deal

Even if it came with 25 discs, I still wouldn't buy it for ps3. It's a multiplat for fuk sake. You're just setting yourself up for failure.

Yes DVD is outdated now. But that's not the only reason why the 360 version is inferior, it's also not getting the over an hours worth of extra content like the PS3 version. This means the people that buy the 360 version are not getting the full game, that's not very fair IMO.

In terms of performance and graphics, they will be identical so this is not that big of a deal really. But having your games on one disc is more conveinant and the fact that the 360 still needs mulitple discs in 2012 is a sign of it getting outdated.

I recommend the PS3 version because of the extra content and one disc is more convienant.

ShadowMoses900

the extra content will probably be useless filler missions and not anything vital to the actual game.

Maybe, maybe not. Regardless the PS3 version gives you more for your money, if you have $60 and two products are identical but one gives you extra stuff, then why would any logical person turn it down? You should get the most for your money.

Lems made the same excuse you are using when Joker was on Batman Arkham Asylum. We all know how that turned out.

lol i dont even remember the joker part of the batman game, it wasn't important to the game and i didnt enjoy the game any less. itll be the same for this AC3 dlc. there is no way ubisoft would screw over pc and 360 gamers and leave out important content

it let you play as the joker in the challenge maps. not terribly compelling. now if they added some joker content to the single player game, that would be a different story.

It was a free download, you go to PS Store and you can download Joker Challenge Rooms. He is pretty fun but also harder, he cannot zip line to anything because he does not have one, and he has X Ray vision but you cannot move while using it. It was fun still though and it wasn't fair to 360 owners.

I didn't say they were screwing 360 owners, AC3 will be great on all systems. Just it's not fair that 360 owners don't get the full game.

its likely just a couple of extra missions. Assassins creed is a great series but the missions are all so forgettable its ridiculous, hell even brotherhood had some missing which they released as dlc. I doubt anyone will be bothered about a few missing missions. itd bother me if it was multiplayer maps perhaps.

Oh the horror... How will lems cope? When I was playing GT5 and wanted to play Infamous I had to *suspense drums* ... Swap the disc! It's hardly killer and they already it's like a one time swap and apparently "It's not even that" so I'm guessing maybe they implemented a way to preload the data to the HDD and just have a short freeze while it loads the data from the preload. Possibly I don't know.

[QUOTE="Stevo_the_gamer"][QUOTE="GamerwillzPS"]PS3 even have upgradeable hard drive which allows you to take up to 2TB, so what's the big deal with all your "mandatory installs" garbage?

Lems, stop the denial and look at the facts. :lol:

GamerwillzPS

So you need to purchase an accessory in order to fully play lots of games? That's ironic.

Prepare to get owned.

:cool:

Oh the horror! Let's your denial begin... or you can go and make some charts... to help yourself to sleep better tonight, son. :P

I have a 250 GB hard drive.

Explain to me how this "owns" me.

"Bu bu arcade! :cry:"

A $10 16GB flash drive will easily remedy that situation.

And seriously, one game on the 360 that requires an installation versus...how many more that don't? I fail to see how this is an issue.

Waoh, so 7 years into its lifecycle, and the 360 finally gets a game with a mandatory install. I'd say if anything, this is good timing. Just proves that Blu Ray wasn't needed this gen, and that only now, on the verge of next gen consoles being released, is more storage becoming necessary. The next Xbox will have blu-ray. Problem solved.

the original post that assumed disc swapping during the game was needed? how does your original post prove anything? the fact that the game works with multiple disks proves that blu ray isn't needed.

OH GOD GET OBAMA ON THE PHONE 360 VERSION IS INSTA- SH!T.

The whole argument against two discs is just stupid. If you are too lazy to get off your fat ass for 10 seconds to swap a disk then it's time you go out and exercise.

#272 Posted by sonic1564 (3265 posts) -

Gamerwillz, do you have a problem with basic exercise or is Sony giving you a lot of bricks just to troll the S*** out of system wars?

#273 Posted by tormentos (17094 posts) -

that many times? :?

CaseyWegner

Apparently xbox 360 games are not split at the whole middle,like it use to be the case in other CD games back on the day,this games were been made and when the developer start to compress it get confronted with 6GB more of data that can't be fit on the DVD,so they make another disc,the problem is that you play until one part where the game will ask for the second disc,but when you advance on the second disc,the console ask you to insert the other again..

Depending on how you play the game can ask for as much as 10 disc switch,and as low as 2.

This is only a problem for fanboys who don't even have a 360. Honestly, it doesn't matter, and Ubisoft specified that it won't get in the way of the experience at all. It's not a halfway disc change or anything like that.

Holy Crap !!! What game are you playing that requires 10 disc swaps? Hell ME3 is the worst I've seen, and it's really maybe 4-5 swaps at the most. Depending on what class you play and what order you fight the missions in.

As much as 10,but some poster on GA claim as much as 12. It depends on how you play,there are even guides on how to play the game with just 2 swaps,which is a joke because you would not be playing the game like you want to,and would be playing like some one else want to. http://xbox.about.com/od/cheatsfaqs/a/Play-Mass-Effect-3-With-Only-2-Disc-Swaps.htm

depends how you do it, if you do the N7 missions you can end up swapping the discs multiple times, but its possible to only do it 2 times, it is the worst implementation of multiple discs on the 360 though.

do you like my new sig?
