Rockstar has confirmed that the Xbox 360 version of Max Payne 3 will be spread across two DVDs.
Redbox, a rental service in the US, revealed that the first disc will contain half of the single player story and the full multiplayer experience. Rockstar later confirmed the information via a Tweet.
"Redbox only ever rent out one disc, for any multi-disc game," it said. "Max is on 2 discs for 360, so Redbox will be renting disc 1 which contains half of the single player story and the full multiplayer game."
Games split across multiple discs are common on the Xbox 360, although it's more prevalent in the role-playing genre. Recent examples include Mass Effect 3 and The Witcher 2. Rockstar's LA Noire was split across three discs due to the size of the game and the fidelity of in-game assets.
At the risk of sounding like trolls, we're just going to mention the PS3 version is on one Blu-Ray. Don't hurt us.
A three-part original Max Payne 3 comic series produced by Rockstar and Marvel is on its way in "the next few weeks".
