3 discs for L.A. Noire on 360

Written by David Stellmack

No disc swap drama, however
Sources are confirming that the Rockstar release of L.A. Noire will use three discs in the Xbox 360 version. The news is not actually that much of a surprise, since the game is massive with more than 400 actors in this open world crime drama.

The target for the game was to fit it on a single layer Blu-ray disc, which is 25GB, and the PlayStation 3 version just barely fits. As they had to use three discs for the Xbox 360 version, the developers were said to be very sensitive to players not having to get up and switch the discs over and over again.

As we told you some time ago, to finish the core story in L.A. Noire, if you don’t take any detours for the side missions and stuff it will take as little as 25 hours to complete - to as much as 30 hours - depending on how fast you go. It looks to provide a significant amount of game play for the money.

Rockstar is also planning a stream of downloadable content that players can purchase to expand the game. This DLC content slots seamlessly into the existing game, which is actually unique in the way they do it.  L.A. Noire is set to be released May 16th in North America, followed by a European release on May 20th.

I do agree that xbox is in need for a much better storage solution for there disks (I hope they have somthing better for the xbox 2) I can see most people just installing this game to the HDD so people won't have a problem switching disks.

Even if you install it, you still need to swap discs.

Who cares about how many disc's it has. Just install them to your hard drive. The game is over 25/30+hours long in that time you may have to swap disc's 3 times? Seriously if your that lazy that getting up and moving 3 times to swap disc's in a 25/30+ hour period is to much then you should be hitting the gym rather than playing video games.

I guess you could buy it for the PS3 to have it on a single BluRay, problem is then you get lower resolution, lower quality textures, inferior lighting and shadows. And missing graphics, i'll take the 3 disc's Xbox360 version over the PS3's donwgraded graphics any day of the week. Not to mention if the game needs PSN for DLC or activation. Good luck with that..

You do realize that this game was originally a PS3 exclusive and that a single-layer Blu-Ray actually has more space than three XBox 360 disks, right? -.- Are you a 360 fanboy or something? I ask because that comment could only be pulled out if the ass of an extremely uninformed fanboy who thinks that every game looks better on the 360.

Obviously BluRay has more space lol. My comment is about the quality of the game, changing discs 3 times shouldn't be a problem for non obese xbox 360 gamers

Red Dead redemption was originally intended to be a PS3 exclusive, however they developed it for the 360 aswell and like other Rockstar games before it GTA IV and DLC etc it runs much better on the 360, higher resolution, better lighting and texures. The PS3 version of Red Dead Redemption actually has missing graphics. I know PS3 fanboys can't except it but it is a fact, this game will run better on the 360...

And what makes you think that a game made for the PS3 would have downgraded graphics on the PS3?
