23GB is nothing near the maximum capacity of Blu-ray.

WildArmed3279d ago

aye, GoW is still epic. o-o
2 GoWs = 1 next gen title lol :)
(single layered blu-ray)

Godmars2903279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

A single layer certainly.

Considering where the original games comes from, can only assume that all the added space they take up is from upscaling. May explain why the in-game cut-scenes weren't.

Edit:
Forget the bonus disc that comes with GOW2. So that's 3 DVDs of info upscaled to HD and stuck onto a BR.

AKNAA3279d ago

Yes, I think its that great! and 23G's sounds just about rite considering how both games each filled up a dual layer dvd. Thats what? 14-15 gigs already, not to mention the extra video content and the HD visual boost.

Bluray Society has just revealed their latest disc which is over 300gb

lossless audio can take up a ton of space

....we won't be seeing a "Halo Collection" any time soon.

Bobby Kotex3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

Played thru first and halfway thru GoWII. I would say at least 30% of the in-game cutscenes are in high quality. I wish the whole thing was that way. This is truly one of my favorites for '09.

"we won't be seeing a "Halo Collection" any time soon."

Of course we will, they'll all be in the same last generation disc medium anyway. All they have to do is repackage it and voila, Halo Collection. :)

WOW, REALLY HUGE

Amazing indeed

dericb113279d ago

None of us really did. Knowing this however lets of know they put a lot of work and resources into this game.

WildArmed3279d ago

same, but it says alot about the effort they put into the collection.
2 DvD -> 1 bluray + extra content

A LIVING LEGEND3279d ago

Doesn't seem right....... almost wrong.I wonder,out of curiosity,how many 'gigs' are taken up by.........the inferno of Dante or AC2 or perhaps them Borderlands of infinite repetition?
Worry less about how and more about why.Gow collection was awesome,gig count aside...........

Darkeyes3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

Since all the games you mentioned are multi-plats, which means all the games take up >8-9GB of space due to DVD9 limitations.... Most of the games are compressed, whereas PS3 exclusive games tend to be uncompressed thus taking in a lot more space....

Besides, GOW 1&2 themselves used up DVDs when they came out.... So obviously expecting it to be compressed in 8-9GB is not possible.

@Darkeyes:
Actually 360 game are only allowed to use about 6.5 GB of the DVD9 disc. That's why you see a growing trend of 360 games being shipped on more then one disc.I suspect it will only get worse as time goes by.

So long as it doesn't take up 23 GB of my hard drive, I'm happy for them.
