Thumbs down Xenosaga US Version out Today!!

sponsored links

 
Well it seems that Xenosga is out and infact it's dual layered..
However on the TOC Level it read around under 4 gigs but when you use Record now max it comes up as around 8 gigs..
Oh well! So best thing is either get a HK Silver presssed copy or wait till it gets ripped into a 1 DVD-R with all the Dummy files extracted or split into 2 DVD-R's(I prey it's not 2 DVD-R's)..

Thanks for the confirmation. We dunno if there are dummy files on it, at leaste 4 gb worth.

I doubt it gets ripped to 2 DVD-rs as its an RPG game, in which you go back and forth.

What I meant was I hope the Hack Group IF they rip the game they don't have to put it into 2 DVD-R's..Who cares about switching Discs..
Personally I was hoping Namco would just use 2 DVD's from the Begining instead of a one Big Disc(Dual Layer)..Personally I don't see this game getting Ripped unless it gets downsampled like crazy or other option is HK Silver of exact replica..Like the Jap version floating around in the HK Silver..
