RAGE will be 3 discs on Xbox 360!

I know I’ve expressed my opinions on multiple disc games haven’t I?  Well iD Software’s Creative Director Tim Willit just let the cat out of the bag that Rage will indeed come on 3 discs on the Xbox 360.  It will be a single disc for the PS3.  This means that Rage will be greater than Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Skyrim combined considering they’re both on one disc doesn’t it? (wink)

“We recommend installing the game to the hard drive, but you don’t need to install all three discs,” he said. “If you don’t have the space available on your hard drive, don’t stress. Install the first disc, the first chapter, the first half of the game, then when you’re done, uninstall and install disc two. You don’t really need to install the multiplayer disc if you’re really tight on hard disk space.”

I’ll be installing the full game on my hard drive but for those of you out there like EYEGotcha with the original Xbox 360, good luck.  You need to invest in a larger hard drive and do it soon.  The Xbox 360 is beginning to show its limitations compared to the PS3 and its Bluray storage.

What say you?  The game will be damn good but will the disc swapping affect your purchase?

  1. Harris you should correct this sentence:
    “This means that Rage will be greater than Final Fantasy XIII-2 in its scope then considering Square is putting FFXIII-2 on one disc?”

    You shouldn’t start with ‘This means’ ending with a question. I think you meant “Does this mean”. And shouldn’t that be a THAN versus a THEN?

    Also, Skyrim will be on 1 disc as well, does that mean its scope will be less than Rage? You really don’t know as the extra space can be graphics and cutscenes versus actual in game content. Oblivion was on 1 disc and the game was pretty massive.

    Multiple discs does not bother me. And the fact that they put MP on 1 disc, like Bungie has done, is a very good idea. Looks like this is going to be like Borderlands on steroids.

    Are there any pre-order incentives for this game?

  2. Brilliant response lol ^

  3. oh Nina … you should look into the English language more often .. it was obviously a joke to even suggest lol

  4. but just to ease the strain on your brain i modified.

  5. I knew you were being facetious Harris, DUH! You heard Nan, brillian response LOL

  6. yeah right lol

  7. If I had the means to get the hook up on 2 360 Slims like a certain yellow boy then I would be cool. But I don’t so I will have to make it work. I’ve played L.A. Noire and it has 3 discs and I haven’t run into a problem with space.

  8. you fail EYEGOTNOHARDDRIVESPACE

  9. You Fail DEACONLOVETOHATEBECAUSEHECANTGETNOHARDLONGBLACKBLADES

  10. lmao

  11. I have the first version xbox as well, with like no hd space, so switching discs will be a pretty bad pain, but at least it’s not like the first resident evil hopefully where you were constantly switching back and forth. I imagine you get to a point and then you’re done with the first on to the second and so on.

  12. no matter what .. you must get this game .. it will knock the boots off ya .. really good one for the bit i played at PAX.
