Previously reported was that Amazon.com had posted images of the Halo 3: Collectors Edition on their site, and it showed that two game discs were being used to hold all of Halo 3's content.

Some said the campaign was so incredibly massive that it needed two discs while others said one was for multiplayer and the other for single-player. All those rumors are false!

Bungie's own Frankie has cleared things up saying that it was just a screw up on Microsoft's part. He was also kind enough to drop off some official packaging details that is accurate at the time of this post:
