[L.A. Noire] But this one goes up to 11...

...Actually it's three.  LA Noire for the Xbox 360 will ship on three discs (but only one on the PS3) according to Kotaku.  Apparently it's the facial scan tech that is the data hog in this case.

So yeah, that's gonna happen, and so will the arguments between Internet trolls over whether three discs makes it the best Xbox 360 game ever or the worst Xbox 360 game ever.  In fact they've already started.

But don't worry, according to the Kotaku article, the disc swapping will come at natural points and there'll be none of that Xbox 360 Mass Effect 2 style "back and forth" switching between discs (for those that didn't play ME2 on the 360, the first act and third act were on disc one while act 2 was on disc two).  Hooray for the little things.

LA Noire could be on 3048 discs for all I care, all it means to me is that R* and Team Bondi are more concerned with quality than appeasing those that hate standing up.  That seems like a good thing to me - and I hate standing up.

Let us know what you think in the comments.  Is this good, bad, meaningless, or a sign of the fall of Western civilization?
