360 Rage on three discs

Written by David Stellmack

Still will be a 22GB install
Apparently, two discs was not enough and didn’t work very well, as id Software’s Tim Willits is confirming that the upcoming release of Rage for the Xbox 360 will come on 3 discs, not two discs as some had reported. The total installation on your Xbox 360 hard drive will be about 22GB, and installing it on the hard drive will be the way to go.

Apparently, id has come up with a method that will allow each disc to be individually installed one at a time as the player progresses though the game. If you don’t have the disc space you can install the first disc and then once Chapter 1 is completed; you can install disc 1 and install disc 2, which of course has Chapter 2 on it. Once you are done with the previous disc, there is no need for you to go back.

The PlayStation 3 version, which comes on a single Blu-ray disc, will only require an 8GB install on the hard drive for the game. This will be a one-off 8GB install on the hard drive and the game reads any other data it needs from the disc. The massive storage of the Blu-ray disc is clearly an advantage here.

While unconfirmed by Willits, it is widely now believed that the PC version of Rage will also come on 3 DVDs and require a 25GB installation to the hard drive.

It's usually a bit compressed ;)
But with my 120mbit connection, it usually only takes a few minutes to download this (30 or so, depending on how much under load steam is), still faster than going to the store.

Have you not seen the online sales vs store sales graphs?

Depends on how the game is packed. If they pack it similar to the way you play it, you'll download the later parts of the game as you go. It's kind of like patching games/DLC when you think about it, a lot of games have lots of data and you don't even really realize it.

It's technically impossible for steam to download in chunks. The original development company has to arrange that as they know which files/parts to load and when. Plus I have not seen steam providing such a service.

Why can't I have a Biddy-rom PC version?!

I had this nuisance when I bought UT2004 - I was supposed to get 2 DVD's, instead the local (Australian) distributor decided to delete the 2nd DVD bonus content (which was my main reason for purchasing) and give me a stack of 10 CD's instead (siddy-rom). (After complaining, I did get a bonus content DVD posted out to me by both the distributor and my retailer, so now I have two!)
