You'll have to get up at least once.

We knew Battlefield 3 would be big, but we didn’t think it’d be two-discs big. A poster for the shooter, found in what we assume is a Japanese game shop, confirms the Xbox 360 version will ship on two DVDs.

The game goes on sale on November 2 in Japan, following a launch in western territories a few days earlier on October 25. It’ll run buyers 7,665 yen.

Thanks, Hachimaki.

      @Aldridge517: I don’t see the problem with two discs. It’s no secret that DVDs have size limitations. Two discs just means that you can expect a good amount of content.

      @Aldridge517: cross game chat > 2 discs.

      Yeah, I think I will take the ease of connecting with people and set up groups over switching a single disc. Don’t get me wrong. It sucks to have to two discs but your comment was pretty pathetic.

    damn two discs? i’m guessing one will be single player and the other will be the multiplayer?

    I don’t see what the big deal with this is. One disc is nice, but two’s not that big of a deal. People are lazy now a days….I remember back in the day having to get up every 15 minutes or so to blow into my nintendo cause it froze.

    Back in my day the more discs you had for your game the BETTER! And we LIKED IT!

      @Zohar127: That’s because CDs were the biggest thing around.

      I assume it will just be SP on one disc, and multiplayer on the other.

    The 2nd disc isn’t for DLC or bonus features or something?

    Seems sorta odd they would not have announced this by now.

    I remember the days of the spectrum. I had to wait 1 hour for a tape to load to play utter cack. 2 discs aint that bad, considering how good this game is going to be.
