    waste of time really movies are never going to use that much space or ps3 games...unless SE make another FF game [​IMG] all current brd players won't be able to use them either so you'll have to run out and get a whole new player. they can shove them up their ass!

    Lame. You'll have to buy a whole new player.

    I prefer HVD's over Blu-Ray. They hold more and can use Quad HD. Maybe they'll use it in the next-gen consoles.

    They're certainly going to put this in the 4th iteration of PlayStation.

    God, "quad HD" is such a stupid name; are they really calling them that? They should've just done 4KTVs.

    Yep. Crappy name for 2160p. Ever heard of Super Quad Full High Definition? It's a real name!

    Ugh... A new player? What a pain in the ass. We ought to just put up with Blu-Ray's "cramped" 50GB limit for at least a few more years before we try to reinvent it.

    Or better yet, just go digital. Screw physical media.

    I personally think that the 50gbs is enough for a blu-ray disc, however with digital media there are problems. For countrys like Australia, we have insanely slow download and upload speeds. It hard enough for Australians to find a deal under 100 Dollars for 50gbs of data.

    Ah, sorry, I forgot about Australia. Sorry, you guys. You guys are troopers!

    Anyway, yeah, I think 50GB should be more than enough. What in the world couldn't fit on 50 cold, hard, gigabytes?

    Haha, it's painful but we manage. Not to mention our internet is going to be completely filtered.

    Anyways >.> isn't it early to actually be making even bigger blu-ray disc? I'd rather get 128gb msds! Though those would be EXTREMELY expensive.

    hard drives are no where as portable as brd's. hard drives cost less, but once you drop them, most likely they're gone. right now flash memory and brd/multi-layer dvd's is where to go in terms of portable memory.

    yeah 128gb is a bit overexcessive, but iirc MGS4 had a hard time fitting on the conventional 50gb DL blu-ray. right now many games are limited by how much space they use, i'm sure the creators of this years AVP wanted to go all out on textures (they still went pretty far... enough to cause a lot of problems on low vram cards) but was limited to 2 DL dvd's and a 32gb install.

    MGS4 A.K.A Metal Gear Solid: The Movie.

    Its alot easier to fit models and textures, than Cut scenes.

    luke, you've picked up my recent bad habit after I got better from it, didn't you? XD

    yeah, a 16GB msd is already as much as a game, and no idea if they're even past 'Class 4', iirc
