Default How Doom 3 will use DVD-ROM ?

Alpha ~ 1GIGA and 3 levels

Original~4-7 GIGA and 30 levels ?

Just a guess. So, do you think Doom will use a DVD ?

everything was uncompressed, that's why it was so big. it will be a lot smaller with the final install. how many games still use .wav for sound, etc.

ENOUGH with the "Doom 3 will have this" or "Doom 3 will run at this rez with this rig" BS speculation!! It'll jsut use cds. They can compress the data. Look at UT 2003. 3 disks. 3 Gigs of data. Cd's are just cheaper to make. Geez.

Besides. John Carmack has already said MANY times:

Doom 3 will be on CDs, not DVD.
