Expansive games such as Mass Effect 2 and L.A. Noire have started to push the limits on the Xbox 360 – respectively requiring two and three discs in order to play. However, by some miracle, Bethesda has apparently discovered how to fit The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on one single disc.
Speaking with Matt Carofano of Bethesda at PAX Prime 2011, the guys over at Ripten were told that you will not be required to switch Xbox 360 discs in the upcoming role-playing game.
I’m not entirely sure how Bethesda managed to cram everything onto a single disc, although I would assume that the lack of cutscenes helps. However, regardless of the ‘how’, it’s good news for those who absolutely despise the act of switching out discs while playing – although I hope the number of people who actually care is relatively slim.
