New L.A. Noire Screens Show Stylish Detective Work

A lot of gamers have a problem with the fact that the 360 version of L.A. Noire is on three discs -- that means twice in the 20 hours of gameplay the game contains, you'll have to get off your couch and switch a disc -- but according to developer Rockstar Games' writer and director Brendan McNamara, there was a time when the game was on twice as many DVDs. 

McNamara told Gamespot:. "It took a lot of effort to get down to three discs - I think we were on four or five or six at one point - and to get it onto one Blu-ray."

Rockstar used "miraculous compression" to get the game to half its original size. Presumably, black magic was involved, but we don't have specific details.

I didn't have a problem with the disc-switching  on the 360 version -- it's really not that big a deal -- but what about you guys? Did anyone out there have a problems with Noire's disc policy?
