Congrats 360 Owners: Final Fantasy XIII-2 Fits Onto a Single DVD

on September 21, 2011 9:00 PM

Switching discs around to continue playing those lengthy JRPGs was never my idea of fun. Don’t get me wrong, I loved when games had multiple discs, but switching them was like a blatant reminder that I was coming to the end of a title and because  I usually liked playing them, this was always saddening. My most recent experience with this was playing almost to the end of Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360, which I think we all remember had three discs.

The sequel to that game will thankfully only have one DVD. Square Enix explains that this is possible not because XIII-2 is any smaller of a game than its predecessor but because space eating pre-rendered cutscenes are used a lot less often this time around, which I personally don’t have a problem with.  Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be available in North America on January 31st for HD consoles.
