BioWare's rocked the very foundations of the internet this morning by confirming that its epic action RPG sequel, Mass Effect 2 is just a bit too epic to fit on a single disc - so it's putting them on two.
Community coordinator, Chris Priestly explains, in handy number form:
"1 - Yes, there are 2 game discs for both the PC and Xbox 360 versions, both the Collector's and standard editions.
"2 - There is a 3rd disc with the Collector's Edition. This is a movie DvD containing making of and other bonus information.
"3 - The PC version is a standard install. You install the information from both discs and then play with 1 disc in the drive. No swapping.
"4 - The Xbox 360 does not have an install and does require disc swapping during play.
"5 - Even though there is a disc swap, it occurs at a carefully planned place in the game (that does not interfere with gameplay) and is done once. You do not swap back and forth. 1 swap and then done.
"6 - Why 2 discs? Answer: Because you cannot fit this much awesome on one disc."
What?! You mean we have to swap the discs?! Disgraceful.
Mass Effect 2 is in the shops on January 29 in Europe with a Collectors' Edition.
