    [​IMG] FFXIII is 32.6GB of movies
    and just 6.8GB of actual game content
    Upcoming PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 RPG Final Fantasy XIII may well be more movie than game, at least in terms of file space.

    An intrepid gamer has placed the Blu-ray disk in his PC and had a look at the file structure and sizes there-in. This revealed that of the 40GB of space used for the game, just over 32GB is used for movies and 6.8 GB is used for the game.

    So, on a technical level at least, the next installment in the epic series is more movie than game. Logically though, those movies will look incredible, the trailers tell you that, and the 7GB of game stuff is still a massive amount of data, so the game’s length probably wont suffer.

    We will just have to wait and see when the final game is released on March 9th.

    Final Fantasy is 70% story, this is a non-issue.

    Game features 9 hours of cut scenes btw.

    I though it was confirmed the 360 ver has multiple discs
    or they just down sampled all video and audio for the 360 ver

    And I thought Metal Gear Solid games had enough cutscenes. Still, this many cutscenes over the game itself just seems a little silly. And I never even found Final Fantasy storylines to be good at all, they just all seem very generic.

    PS3 version has high bitrate 1080p for the videos and Lossless PCM audio for the soundtrack and voices. 360 one gets low bitrate 720p and just dolby digital 5.1 lossy audio. It will also be at least 3-4 discs.

    Yeah but now you're wasting your time watching the game (movies) instead of solving a freaking puzzle! Seriously is this what games are really becoming now?! Eye-candy and special-effects with no ground-breaking gameplay nor gimmick that can make a gamer once again feel like he/she actually playing a good game?!

    I'm really feel sad for people who pay 60 bucks just to WATCH a freakin game like some kind of anime DVD while the rest of it is gameplay. I even notice that from Sonic games, after you complete a zone or stage there's a cutscene then another stage or boss battle begins. I know that most games are appraise from voice acting instead of gameplay.

    If I'm wrong then show me a game that had terrible voice acting but excellent gameplay! I dare you!!

    Well Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 both had TERRIBLE story and voice acting but awesome action gameplay. Those are two games come to mind of the top of my head but I know there are many more that have horrible voice acting but good gameplay.
