Default MGS4 need 50GB Blu-ray

25GB are too small for MGS4, Kojima wants 50GB Blu-Ray disk for MGS4.

It seem here are no chance to porting MGS4 to Xbox360 with DVD9.

A game taking up that much space is beyond ridiculous.

Well, they ARE including 47GB of trueHD cut scenes...

Edit: I've been misinformed. Only 27GB are going to be cut scenes. The other 20GB is going to be disk padding.

Is that really the case? 20gb of padding? I've been out of the loop for awhile so I didn't hear of this but if that's true, that's pretty lame.

personally I think cut scenes is a cop out in a game. If your game engine can't run a cut scene from scripts in real time and look as good, you have done something wrong.

Its a waste of space on the disk to have all that prerecorded footage that could be easily just be scripted and run.

MGS games use in engine cutscenes, so their scripted. its not prerecorded considering you can alter the camera to a degree.

thats better sounding than what I got from what Qlitchford was saying, which I might have misinterpreted. But with that much cut screens, are you playing a game, or watching a movie?

Your playing an interactive movie, hehe... But yeah there are ALOT of scripted scenes in MGS games... ALOT... like hours upon hours... but they are rendered ingame (you can zoom and pan the camera to prove it).

well I never played them before, and now have no real interest in playing them now. That just sounds so boring.

Well if it's over 25GB its over 25GB right? Doesn't matter if its over by 1GB or 10GB. And padding just helps increase the disk read speeds.

Their really awsome games, I think they are far better then the Splinter Cell Series. MGS3 was probably my favorite one with the first following it (either the PSX or the GC Version) and MGS2 last due to playing as Riaden...
