    Blue ray: 1

    This bit of news will probably send the people who actually thought that 9 GB DVD's were enough for this generation of gaming into a frenzy, but as crazy as it sounds, Hideo Kojima recently said that "Blu-Ray is too small for Metal Gear Solid 4."
    The current spec of Blu-Ray is only 25 GB, and he wants the newer spec 50 GB Blu-Ray for MGS4. (Not a Dual Layer 25 GB Blu-Ray, but the single layer 50 GB Blu-Ray)

    While Hideo Kojima doesn't necesarily care much about HD, he says there's a lot you can do with sound that would fill up a Blu-Ray disc really quickly. On top of everything else in the game this apparently makes the game go way past the 25 GB limit. And Kojima said that he wants to use the new higher spec 50 GB Blu-Ray for MGS4.

    Well I guess that confirms it. MGS4 for Xbox 360, an 18 disc box set! lol
    On a serious note though, it looks like MGS4 on X360 won't even be possible.

    This was reported on a podcast for 1 up yesterday. You can search for it on iTunes. It's called "1 up yours" but it's an hour long. I recorded that part of the pod cast though if anyone wants to listen.


    This is pretty crazy though. I didn't expect a first generation PS3 title to push the limits of Blu-Ray already!
    Good luck for pirates ripping this game though. Making backups of 50 GB games doesn't sound easy.
    Hideo Kojima is indeed a genius though, and all of this makes me more excited about playing MGS4 and finally seeing what Kojima has in store for us.

    I don't get why people who've read this think that it's impossible for it to come to the 360. Companies have released games across multiple discs before, it's annoying but nothing new.

    Blue Dragon, which is already out in Japan is a 25GB game across three DVDs for the Xbox360. Lost Odyssey by the same studio is reportedly much larger.

    This'll give an early edge to BLU Ray over HD-DVD.

    It would be 5 and a half, but since we can't have half a disc lol, call it a total of 6 discs for the game to come on the 360 if he uses every ounce of space out of the max capacity Blu-Ray 50.

    MS really needs to make the HD-DVD player addon for 360 capable of playing games too.

    Uh, people are just leaving shit uncompressed on Blu-Ray. Do you know how much filler there is in resistance?

    Disney also put their early support for Blu-ray, so maybe if more companies jump on the Blu-ray bandwagon we can expect PS3 price to fall because more companies will invest in the technology and better/cheaper methods of production can be achieved.

    but wow cant fit the game on the 25 gig disc is wow.
