The sheer number of foxy blue alien women in Mass Effect 2 has pushed the limits of the DVD format’s storage capabilities. As a result, BioWare is spreading the Xbox 360 and PC game across two discs.

While that won’t mean that much to owners of the PC version—it’s a two-disc install—poor Xbox 360 owners will suffer the galactic inconvenience of a disc swap at some point. Chris Priestly, community coordinator of BioWare, says it’s not so bad.

“Even though there is a disc swap, it occurs at a carefully planned place in the game (that does not interfere with gameplay) and is done once,” Priestly wrote on the Mass Effect 2 forums. “You do not swap back and forth. 1 swap and then done.”

Eh. I am going to play it on the 360 and I dont care about disk swapping. I would rather they did that than scale down the game. Plus, I don't see why people hate doing that. I have had to do that with Lost Odyssey, Star Ocean 4, Baten Kaitos and Resident Evil 4 and believe it or not, I couldn't care less. Some people act llike it is the devil incarnate.

swapping is not tht bad esp since the most famous PS game had 2 swaps ( disc 2 and 3... no need to mention the game)

Indeed, I don't hear anyone bitching about that or its sequels... Must be just XBOX hatred then.
