Oh noes! Diskswapping! Must be a bad game.
Never minded it when I played BG 1 & 2, Planescape Torment or FF7.

Man that's a really stupid way to look at things. I suppose Kojima was stupid too for splitting Metal Gear Solid for Playstation in two discs? How about Square for Final Fantasy VII in FOUR discs?

Man that is really stupid! Comparing the ps1 to current gen! DVD's are outdated end of story.

I still remember Rise of the dragon for the Amiga which came on 11 floppys. Going from location to location (room to room) usually took 2 disk swaps since music was on one disk and locations on the other 10.

I bought my first extradrive for that game since it was so awesome and it cut my swapping in half!

Of course they're outdated. Heck, plenty of people believe that physical media in general is outdated. That doesn't make this 2 disc story a big a deal.

I'm not really seeing any issue here. I'm playing The Witcher 2: EE at the moment and it's on 2 discs for the single player on the Xbox 360. I really don't mind swaping discs, not like I didn't do it in the old days with my pc.

This just in, fat fan-boys outraged at Max Payne 3 on Xbox 360 being multi-disc, fortunately for Rock Star and Microsoft most have run out of breath before being able to post said outrage to gaming forums.
