i read that even ut3 couldn't fit on a dvd, but it does. wasnt rfom supposed to use all most of the space on a bluray? but that looked rubbish and wasnt a particularly a big game.
And was a launch title. Yeah because things don't improve over the course of a consoles lifecycle ...

Here we go again Lets keep it clean now....
and the truth is
Blu-Ray is Sony
DVD is Toshiba
No not really the truth...Microsoft will and never has payed any dev for making it rubbish on PS3 its what you call a bribe so if they do so and sony find out they will sue the creater and Microsoft..so cut your FANBOYISM
Microsoft pays to get exclusive and others, if you search on the internet there was a mistake on Assasin creed Comparison... IGN didn't put ps3s quality to high compared to xbox 360 so it looked better on 360 than ps3 but they said they made a mistake and re-did it and guess what it looked better on PS3 than 360.
Its just lazy developers who can't be bothered to figure out the ps3 power so far EA has started and so has the creater of Assasin Creed.
Ubisoft,Capcom have all been caught in the act as people found small glitches that showed B and Y. Disney make there own crappy games but they only released there games on PS2.Wii,360,DS,PSP.... there is no PS3 because they haven't got a clue on how to work it out except for PURE which was made by Motorstorm developers + Disney interactive just to help Disney boost up.
Sony has always been the best in terms of specs
1st to make HD TV
1st to make Bigger discs
1st to make OLED
1st to take risks even if it loses money
Microsoft never manufactored or advised toshiba how to build it so
Microsoft wanted a basic shape Toshiba told them there would be problems
Microsoft didn't give a ***** and continued.
Toshiba backed out before 360 Release.
As you can see microsoft never gave a *****...
Also for you mac lovers Apple was involved in making the Playstation 3
And the ps3 is 256MB Cache compared to a 2MB cache towards a Laptop this helps framerates and this is really not a bother in laptops.
These are the big things in a PS3
So whats wrong with a blu-ray if it has the right hardware to use it

the creator of MGS4 said in CVG magazine in an interview (its a mag so i can't link) that it would take 4 DVDs to fit that game on! i doubt he would have meant uncompressed, and i also think that if he knew you could compress that to 1 DVD he would omit that detail, certainly without CVG picking up on it?

Yes, we blame the Xbox 360 for game installs and restricted content in Blu-ray discs in multi-platform games. This is what exclusives are for! PS3 exclusives is where Blu-ray really shines! No installs and limited contents! If no exclusives, why use Blu-ray? So we have to say thanks to the Xbox 360 for small GTA IV.Message Edited by Gamerwillz on 26-02-2009 08:08 PM
Well i have a few ps3 exclusives that have to be installed onto the HDD...
MGS4,Everybodys golf,Gran Turismo,warhark (this doesnt use the disc at all or GT5p),Heavenly Sword .
Also,PURE wasnt developed by the motorstorm devs....It was done by the ex CLIMAX team (motoGP series on the 360) for disney.......And i'm also sure SONY had a hand in the development of DVD tech....Not just Toshiba.
No single company "owns" DVD. The official specification was developed by a consortium of ten companies: Hitachi, JVC, Matsu*****a, Mitsubishi, Philips, Pioneer, Sony, Thomson, Time Warner, and Toshiba

well,i for one have to wonder if Blu-Ray is needed,sure its good for games like MGS4,but if you HAVE to install the game and load/install the 'acts' in that game...maybe the Blu-Ray format for games is too much for the PS3(it seems that it isnt on level terms with the hardware if you ask me)
i for one have no problems playing DVDs both 360 and the PS3 have great games that are fine on DVDs..i even dont mind switching discs like with Lost Odyssey...takes about 5 seconds..Lost Odyssey was 4 discs so it took roughly about a minute switching disc if you include getting up of the sofa,LOL
Blu-Ray are good for games,but not entirely needed right now...next gen,sure Blu-Ray or whatever will be next
and no,i dont blame the 360...the console came out in 2005
from Wiki on blu ray
'The first Blu-ray Disc titles were released on June 20, 2006'
the 360 has been strong since launch..using DVDs
