The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

L.A. Noire Was Once a Six-Disc Game

Posted on Tuesday, May 17 @ 08:36:47 Eastern by
L.A. Noire on the Xbox 360 spans across 3 discs in total, while the PS3 version stuffs the entire experience on one Blu-ray Disc. Three discs aren't too bad, especially considering it was once at a staggering six discs.

But knowing that there isn't yet a Xbox 360 model that comes with a built-in disc changer, Team Bondi turned to advanced compression techniques:

It took a lot of effort to get down to three discs - I think we were on four or five or six at one point - and to get it onto one Blu-ray [for the PS3 version].

Said L.A. Noire director, Brendan McNamara, while speaking with Gamespot in a recent interview. McNamara continued:

We're pretty pleased that we got it down to that in the end

It's the biggest map that we've done and that Rockstar have done, so there's a lot of detail in there, and also a lot of actor's performances - 21 hours worth.

McNamara called the feat "miraculous compression".

At first, many trashed Sony for including Blu-ray Disc early in to the PlayStation 3's lifecycle, but now, it's proving to be useful. For all you dual-console owners out there, are three discs on the 360 enough to get you to buy the PS3 version of L.A. Noire instead? Let us know below.
