Skyrim will fit on one Xbox 360 disc so you can relax now photo



In the last year or so, games on the Xbox 360 have started to expand to two (Mass Effect 2) and sometimes even three (L.A. Noire) discs. When it comes to the next installment in the Elder Scrolls series, you would be forgiven for thinking that the colossal world, characters, and environments of Skyrim would need maybe four or five. As it turns out, it needs just the one.

Bethesda art director Matt Carofano has confirmed that you won't need to get up off the couch to change discs in between battling dragons and marrying Khajiits. Carofano has also said that the world of Skyrim is roughly the size of Oblivion, only way more dense. With that in mind, it comes as a surprise that only one disc is needed for what is potentially one of the biggest games of the year. Well, big as in massive, not disc requirement. Oh, you know what I mean.

Turns out blacksmithing is tougher than in Skyrim

The Dragonborn fights vampires and Necromancers

Remember that awesome live-action Fallout movie from Machinima Prime? It was the start of a series of live-action takes on videogames, and the latest one has finally arrived. This one is based on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and sees the Dragonborn has been weakened by a vampire's curse. The Dark Brotherhood captures him, and offer to cure hi if he rescues another vamprie from the Necromancers.more
