When Final Fantasy XIII was announced for Xbox 360, the PS3 fanbase were quick to point out that it would need to ship on multiple DVDs. Now, Square Enix has confirmed the amount of discs that will contain the Xbox 360 version. Three is the magic number.
US retailer GameFly was first to reveal that FF XIII would ship on three DVDs, and Square Enix has confirmed that this will indeed be the case. Final Fantasy XIII on the PS3 will need one Blu-ray disc, but it would appear that not even two DVDs will be enough to contain all that fantasy.
So, three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. If you're the kind of person who judges a game's quality based on the amount of discs it needs, then this story is very, very important to you.
As for sane, normal people, what do you reckon? Has this confirmation changed your perception of the 360 version? Are multiple discs a big deal to you? What version do you think will be best?
