More On: Max Payne 3
In what is becoming a regular occurrence for Xbox 360-centric gamers, it was announced today that Max Payne 3 would ship on two discs for Microsoft's mean machine.  Rockstar especially seems more open to using multiple discs for their Xbox games (Max Payne 3 will represent their second multi-disc release in a year).  This probably means that GTA V will be on seven discs - that's if it comes out before we reach the technological singularity rendering all physical media irrelevant.

For Max Payne 3, this means that the first half of the single-player campaign will be on disc one while the second half and all the multiplayer will be on disc two.

And I really hope by "second half" they mean "an amount of time roughly equal to the single-player content on disc one" and not "the last five minutes of the game and its super-long credits*" like we got with disc 2 of The Witcher 2.
