At this stage in the Xbox 360′s life, this is hardly news; there have been loads of the more recent 360 games on multiple discs. Most recently – and quite annoyingly – Mass Effect 3 spanned two discs and led to a period in the gameplay when the discs were being swapped every ten minutes, for me, at least.
Now Max Payne 3 will be split on to two DVDs for Microsoft’s machine. The first disc will apparently contain the multiplayer, which is getting lots of positive feedback, and the first half of the single player campaign. The second disc will carry the remaining portion of the single player campaign. Hopefully the game handles the disc swap point sensibly enough that it’s not a case of getting up and changing it more than once.
The PS3 Blu-ray will, of course, all fit on the one disc.
