Do you like games with multiple discs? Most people, I find, do not. Changing discs to continue playing a game seems like a pretty inefficient and outdated activity, doesn’t it? I certainly think so. Having to stop playing an awesome game and change the disc to continue playing the same game does not add to the gaming experience in any way, shape, or form. I don’t see how it can.
Unfortunately, one of the year’s biggest games, Rockstar’s L.A. Noire, will suffer a fate of multiple DVDs on the Xbox 360. Though swapping the discs has reportedly been made as seamless and stress-free as possible, it is still not a merit. It is also said to take up an entire Blu-ray disc. This could be a determining factor in deciding which version a multi-console gamer should pick up. At the very least, we know L.A. Noire is a big game. We’ll find out just how big when the game hits HD consoles on May 17th.
