This weekend, we sent our features editor Stephiroth Gutowski over to the Bethesda booth at PAX Prime to do a few things. Play RAGE, play Skyrim and get some questions answered. One of those questions that has been on the mind of many of our console gaming readers is, “Just how many Xbox 360 discs will it take to hold all of Skyrim?!”
Well, luckily, that answer is ONE.
There will be no disc swapping involved in the latest iteration of Bethesda’s flagship RPG franchise. This comes as a bit of a surprise seeing as Skyrim is such a large game, however Bethesda seems to have gotten it done. Kudos.
This confirmation came from Skyrim’s Art director Matt Carofano. Steph even double checked asking Matt, “Really? One Disc? on 360?!”
“Yes”, he said – Before running off to another interview. Sadly, he could not confirm or even speculate on the install sizes for Xbox 360 or PS3.
So there you have it. All of the all the majesty and grandeur of Skyrim, on one Xbox 360 disc. Nice.
Stay tuned for more of Steph’s adventures at PAX and for more on Skyrim be sure to check out our epic hands-on preview.
