Halo 3 Collector's Edition: lacking in mysterious extra discs [update]

Update: Presenting the Halo 3 Collector's Edition sans the mysterious "Game Disc Two." We still don't care how many discs the game is on, but you'll want to learn more in our look at Bungie's Weekly Update.

Oh no. Or rather, oh noes. Representing the average person, compared to the Standard Edition's luckless vagrant or the Legendary Edition's overweight sultan, the Collector's Edition of Halo 3 can now be seen sporting two game discs and a bonus disc. What does that mean, exactly? Well, it depends on who you ask.

Just one logical assumption (see update below) would be that the first disc contains the single-player campaign, whilst the second functions as an entry into the game's multiplayer arena. Not an outrageous conclusion to make, but certainly not a very entertaining one. Perhaps we'd be better off seeing this as a message about the inadequate capacity of DVD, a frightening glimpse into a world where switching weapons also requires us to exert physical effort and switch discs. Discs, as in plural!

This is a dark day for us immobile couch denizens, with no ray of hope in sight. Could somebody hold us?
