Mass Effect 2 to Ship on Two Discs

1 min read


There are a whole bunch of people who loathe swapping discs mid-game. We generally refer to them as PS3 Owners. And now those same people can finally be glad they won’t be getting Mass Effect 2, the sequel to the Space RPG they didn’t get either.

Bioware have confirmed that the hugely anticipated Mass Effect 2 will be shipping on two discs, as the DVD format just isn’t quite cutting it anymore.  Likewise, the PC version will require two discs to install. Maybe putting that Blu-ray drive in the PS3 was a bloody good idea afterall.

Don’t stress, Xbox users – According to Bioware’s Chris Priestly it won’t be an astronomical inconvenience – "Even though there is a disc swap, it occurs at a carefully planned place in the game (that does not interfere with gameplay) and is done once," Priestly wrote on the Mass Effect 2 forums. "You do not swap back and forth. 1 swap and then done."

As long as the swap doesn’t happen in the middle of an alien sex scene, I’m cool with it. Coitus Extraterrestrialis interruptus? Nuh uh. that would totally ruin my mojo.

Personally I think that no matter what format the game were to ship on it would come on two discs. It’s impossible to fit that much awesome on just one disc.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
