Default Final Fantasy XIII Nightmare Looms for Xbox Owners

Quote:

The demo of long awaited RPG blockbuster Final Fantasy XIII has unveiled an unpleasant truth for Xbox 360 owners: the demo alone is 5GB, more than the capacity of a single layer DVD, and of course the full game will be many times larger.

The capacity of a Blu-ray disc is 25GB for a single layer, 50GB for two, whilst a single layer DVD is 4.7GB and a dual layer one 8.5GB. Unfortunately, the Xbox 360 only has a DVD drive.

2ch provides its impression of the situation facing Xbox 360 owners when the game finally finds its way onto the platform next year:



This was what it was initially thought to be…



Expectations have however increased…



With the size of games ever increasing, suddenly the economy of including a standard DVD drive does not seem so wise. Much disc-swapping appears to be on the horizon…

-Miyuki's note: Link edited out as it contains NSFW materials-

If everything is compressed, expect probably 4-5 discs for the 360 version? (which might... have some issues possibly) With a high price attached of course.

EDIT: Images were glitchy, so I uploaded pics to imageshack and posted.

I read the comments, and I can't believe that there are people who actually think that constant disc-swapping is much better than a one-time, 10 to 20 minute installation. o_O;

I mean, look at Star Ocean 4. You had to change discs whenever you wanted to revisit an older area. I think I would rather take a one-time installation over disc-changing.

It isn't exactly as the picture shows (its so you can get a idea). However, if everything is compressed, expect probably 4-5 discs for the 360 version? (which might... have some issues possibly) With a high price attached of course.

Oh but everybody loved FFVII with the 3 disks.
/joke

More people should save up money and switch over to the PS3 and let the poor xbox collect dust in a dark corner somewhere.

We're not talking 3 disks here, we're talking...a lot. If that (2 hour?) demo was 5GB, god knows how big the real game will be. Demos are what, 5% of the whole game? Even if they compress it (I don't know why they wouldn't compress the demo disk...), unless they can compress it by 80%, there's just too many disks...

Plus, you may have to switch discs if you want to re-visit older areas, and those who have played SO4 definitely know how annoying that can get. XD

Well one would hope they don't make it like Metal Gear Solid 4 where you had you reinstall in order to play a different act. Otherwise we might just be seeing numerous install screens for the PS3 just for a smaller installation overall.
Would want a 30GB install on a 40GB system now do we.

Amen. The most I can think the BD release would probably be a dual layer BD (omg fat game.)

That's a lotta discs there for you XBOX360 owners.

Great, Square always being the one (and most bloated) dev to push the storage space on game systems... I guess Square never gave up from directing a movie with ever expansive FMV scenes on each game along the series. Blu-ray discs? Square wants 1 TB SSD card please =.=

On a side note, X360 can use dual layer DVD, though usable space is around 6-6.5 gigs.

It would so cool if they made FFXIII the first console game ever to be so big they had to place it on a portable drive. (That would be WAYYYY smarter)

XII has been out for like two or three years...

Also the multidisk games were superior to their one disk counterparts of later generations.
