If this does turn out to be true than MS are gonna release a bigger memory card and they will release a bigger hard drive.

Two titles have been alowed to break the limit (unless I'm missing something): Lumines and Castlevania.

And in both cases, it was because the developers had specially filed for it and basically said there was no way they could fit under the limit without cutting the game (although in Lumines' case... I won't even go there).

While there may continue to be some exemptions for a few games:
-Yes, Microsoft will allow a dev to break the limit if it's necessary to bring a great game.
-Most games will continue to be under 50MB (all the PopCap games, for instance).
-If you intend to download a lot of stuff from Live, you really do need a hard drive anyway. You can still get Uno and Mortal Kombat and (etc), but there's LOTS of stuff on Live you just can't get with just a mem card.

And in case it hasn't been said recently:
-Most people who have Core units aren't online in the first place, so for the most part, this doesn't apply to them anyway.

This goes to show that the core system was something that was created to keep a price point, there should have been only one system.
