Hmm.. 6GB Vram, perhaps? DX12 inc. Damn. I might get this just to drool. Lol.

iSuperSaiyanGod954d ago

I can't handle this . It's just to much to comprehend ... I can't 😭😭😭 28557;

nowitzki2004954d ago

Hopefully my 970 is ready for this game.

Thats actually pretty small. Consider we got many games that massive on PS3 last gen.

I was expecting it to be a big larger considering just how large they are saying they want the game to be.

Massive, but not overly massive consider just what they are trying to do.

I'm ok with the size as this is nature progression of gaming.

Consider those who liked their "cheap" 360's, also supported using DVD twice, as suppose to MS using HD-DVD or even Bluray.

Yet...Mass Effect isn't open world like this game is....

Many, many missed opportunities last gen based on that limitation.

This game is what Mass Effect in terms of size can technically be now that every XONE has a bluray player and HDD...

Very happy to see this game living up to its technical potential, very happy to finally see mulitplatform games using much more space to convey what they are trying to convey, vs limiting, cutting corners, stripping content etc to fit 8gigs.

This will be an all around great gen!

PS3 and Blu Ray in general is limited to 25gb-50gb.

Jadenkorr021954d ago

Its not multi platform. Its PC only. Devs have even said its not coming to consoles.

Scatpants954d ago

Considering that's probably in the top 3% of game sizes it actually not pretty small.

LOL!

nope.

link?

Pretty sure it can read more then that and bluray has more layers then just 2...not sure where you heard it was limited to 50gb..

@JadenKorrr021

They never said it was never coming merely that they would focus on them and that it wouldn't lessen the game in any way...sorry but if you follow the game, you know that Roberts has been open to it and will likely port it.

I see no reason why sooooo

"very happy to finally see mulitplatform games using much more space to convey what they are trying to convey, vs limiting, cutting corners, stripping content etc to fit 8gigs."

That comment is for consoles in general.

Sorry but 360 using DVD again limited many, many games FFXIII, GTAIV etc.

GTAV needed an install to be played on 360 and so did MGSV (thank god)

My issue is the nerfing of the game to fit on 1 DVD.

Those games that have installs, I haven no issue with, but FFXIII and GTAIV will be known as the worst in those series because of that limitation and because those publishers tried to cut corners to make it work with such limitations...

_-EDMIX-_954d ago

ie would you rather Square never make FFVII because of N64's limited format?

Sooo why except limitations last gen? lol!

Yet FFXIII Versus was at one point ONLY being made on PS3, yet was going to be cross gen from PS3 to PS4 and XONE....NOT 360.

Mind you...its been confirmed they where going to do that.

They where working on next gen systems ALONG with the PS3, later the PS3 version was canned, ie they had no plans for a 360 version.

just like Square had no plans for KH collections on 360, Ubisoft with Prince Of Persia or Splinter Cell collection, or MGS4.

DVD just doesn't have the room and those companies where not going to be wasting money on extra dvd's because of MS issues..

GTAIV's limitations. ie FFVII for n64...we only know of what it could have been after GTAV lol! (..with an install to make sure its a real GTA game)

sorry but the limitation was a thing and it seems only Sony developers didn't have to worry about that when they made their mega exclusives compared to most developers......

Again...its why you still see some PS3 exclusives from some companies...its likely because they can't be made on 360 unless with many disk, install etc royalties MS may not actually pay.

Sorry but facts are facts, DVD9 was used many times during PS2's era and used AGAIN during 360's, GT series got larger, Forza's car count barely went up, MGS4 got to get made etc.

Developers didn't have to cut corners, hinder games, strip features etc.

I'm not even sure who the hell would defend a lessor format or make it seem as if its not a big deal...it was to FFVII on PS1 compared to N64, would we really just want it made on n64 knowing what would have been FFVII will now likely never be made? or made the next gen? ie holding everyone back?

Sucks for people with Data Caps on their internet.

Farsendor1953d ago (Edited 953d ago )

you should have done more research. There is not one 100gb game for ps3.

It may support 100gb disk but those disk are slower.

Naughty Dog not to long ago said this in an interview

http://www.shacknews.com/ar...

The upcoming PS4 port of The Last of Us must take into consideration the 50GB limit of Blu-ray, Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann claims. "Our cinematics are now running at 1080p and 60fps, and that involved rendering them all from scratch," he told Edge (via CVG). "It's interesting that now [instead of a technical bottleneck], the bottleneck is 'Can we fit all this on the disc?'"

Quote from Cnet
The triple-layer Blu-ray discs with 100GB storage capacity, is the ..... gives you access to the same information (all be it at a slower rate)
