you probably install Disc#2 onto the HDD, and have the option to do the same with Disc#1, but still have to have Disc#1 in the tray. selling off Disc#2 would only help someone who had damaged theirs.

Nice, it's like L.A.Noire. Two discs aren't much of a problem. Many people are happy to get two discs for the price of one 8D But seriously, this game is THAT detailed. I wonder how many discs would Wii-U require? Probably two?
A wuu disc uses 25gb so only one. There's plenty room left over.
That's nice. I didn't know about the approximate storage capacity of a disc media that Wii-U will be using. It seems to be close to the Blu-Ray disc media.

Just checked Wikipedia for it and found that you're right-

Wii-U Storage- Slot-loading optical disc drive compatible with 12 cm "proprietary high-density optical discs" (25 GB per layer)[76][77] and 12 cm Wii optical discs.

Wii-U wiki page

Thank you for the info, Ded Valve

So is it that you don't need the first disc to play multiplayer? If that's the case then I can just sell disc 2

Really need to finish AC:R I guess. Had it since release, it's just been sidetracked by Skyrim (as soon as I was getting bored, new content mods would come out, then when they dried up, we got Dawnguard, and now we've got the new content mods involving Dawnguard... QED) and then *plug'n'play* trophy-hunting shooters like BF3 and MW3 and their DLC's, behind the times; unfortunately, it comes out at the same time as many other "wants" - Baldur's Gate Extended, All Star's Battle Royale, Hitman Absolution, Black Ops 2, NFS: Most Wanted, MoH: Warfighter, 007 Legends, XCom, all coming out around the same time.

Sony DO NOT OWN BLU-RAY they are just one of the founding companies of the Blu-ray Disc Association.

As true as that is, Microsoft is neither a member of the Board of Directors, Contributors or General Members. I'm unsure exactly if it's only companies within those brackets that can utilise the Blu-ray hardware, but it does make it seem unlikely that microsoft would jump in with it, as sad a piece of news as that is.

I like that they did it this way, unless you want to play multiplayer you don't have to ever worry about swapping disks.

I hope they put the space to good use since both modes have their own disk, I remember with Tales of Symphonia the only thing on disk two was the grade shop.

It's not big. The storage medium is just getting too small for today's games.
