how many discs do you think it will be on the 360 version, I assume its one on the ps3 version, because of bluray discs and such.

I am kinda hoping more then one disc, just because i enjoy opening a game with more then one disc in it :D

The PC version weighs 17 GB in total, but I do not know if it will be the same weight as the console version.

I would expect arround 10 GB for console versions so 2 DVDs for xbox would be the way.

Best bet would be to split up the Single Player and Multiplayer onto separate discs. I just can't see this being on one disc when you have somewhere like the Frontier being 1.5x the size of Rome.

The maximum capacity of a DVD is 17 GB, dual-layer disc. 10 GB will come quietly.

If your one of the limited people to receive a "steel" game case from gamestop, then you'll realize there is only enough space in the case for only 1 disk. I would love to have more then 1 disk, but then my steel case will become obsolete.

Unless the discs are stacked on top of each other.

However, I would think that for manufacturing purposes, Ubisoft has access to the 17GB discs.

I have the pc copies of the previous games, but i've always wondered how did they put 8GB size game in dvd disk. Im not into things, but is it compressed memory or the disc contains the actual 8gb? I've never saw any dvd above 4.7gb.

The installers are always compressed.

If anything, the two disks will be multi and singleplayer, which I don't mind at all.

Thanks guys.

Well, given that those specs aren't official, i won't get too worried yet, but the lack of DX9 in the graphics card requirements worries me. I hope they support it.

Well, GT 8800 have DirectX 10 so if your GPU do not support Dx10 then just forget about playing the game on pc.

Plus, the game doesn't support Windows XP which means the game surely won't support Dx9.

I don't mind either but if the xbox 360 version has 2 for singleplayer (like ME 2) I'm gonna be really mad:mad:

I don't think they'll have 2 for AC3. The engine is optimized for big worlds, there are no storyline choices causing multiple variations of every conversation, the graphics are not super-intensive, and there are only 4 open environments, with any others being on a lesser scale most likely. Something such as two disks would have been announced by this point.

EDIT: I mean two single-player disks. Separate multi disks are often on the DL for a while.

I don't think they'll have 2 discs for AC3 but it's always a possibility ! After months of telling myself no i pre-ordered AC3 on the PS Store as my shelf However i won't have all 5 AC's in a row now :( I have to much money to spend, the content may not be worth the price but it still downloads on the 28th so lucky me !

Because it uses DVD discs, PS3 uses Blu Ray and Wii U uses something else, cant remember what.

That is why this Gen is limited by the Xbox. It is also why PS3 exclusives look absolutely stunning compared to Xbox exclusives.

Or you get PC, which can compress everything, and then unpack it during installation.

This is starting to feel like a console war about to happen... I cannot be held responsible for the actions of other forum members, I also want to say that in no way did i attempt to make one.

I wouldn't worry about it, it doesn't take much to set them off. Just grab your popcorn and sit back...

I thought we were talking about how different platforms fit stuff onto one disc?
