If you're wondering how much space did the God of War Collection occupied on the PS3's Blu-ray disc, try almost all of it.
23GB is nothing near the maximum capacity of Blu-ray.
witch is 25 gigs
aye, GoW is still epic. o-o 2 GoWs = 1 next gen title lol :) (single layered blu-ray)
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.
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.
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
Neither was I.
None of us really did. Knowing this however lets of know they put a lot of work and resources into this game.
same, but it says alot about the effort they put into the collection. 2 DvD -> 1 bluray + extra content
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...........
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.
So,gig count aside......... Limitations. You are right,and yes.I agree.So,GOW collection would have been 2+discs for 69.99 or 1 disc for 39.99?.....=)
If both games of God Of War collection was ever on the 360 it would have to use 3 or 4 DVDs to put the hole series on, this is why blu-ray is Awesome! cause it can hold more space and for the Developers to put as much stuff in their games and Advancing the technology.
23 gig's of killing; love it.
of massive epicness? Not surprised at all, especially if it's from a 1st party--specifically, from the studio who made the GOW series.
Still a shock to me why this game isn't internationally released.
cause when sony say HD they mean HD lol
Power of Blu-ray if GTA 4 was a PS3 exclusive it would have been more like San Andreas with more stuff to do, see this is what happens when developers put games on xbot console they cuts down the space cause of the limitations from xbot DVDs look at Final Fantasy XIII on 4 or 5 DVDs, also Square Enix graphical quality was supposed to be a lot higher texture mapping and more Real-Time High-Dynamic Range beyond the xbot capabilities with real High Definition like 720p or 1080p without upscaling any disc.
Does that mean the 360 couldn't handle a ps2 game using only 1 last gen dvd?
With High Definition visual boost in one last gen DVD would probaby take up half the DVD also the High quality Textures,Real-Time High-Dynamic Range, and other stuff would be around 5GB or 6GB with only a little of space to add anything else on that is why Blu-ray was made cause a lot of developers wanted to put more stuff in their games but Microshit xbot DVDs are holding them back with DLC that could have been on the Blu-ray instead of Onlne with fees.
That's what, 3 HDDVDs or so?
4 HDDVD (since you can only use 6.5 GB of HDDVD) it would be 3 full HDDVD plus 1 more half space
What are you talking about? A dual layer HD DVD has a capacity of 30GB.
^LOL Yeah to the guy above, HD DVD's are 15gbs and dual layers are 30gb. So it would need just one dual layered HD-DVD. But that's pretty pointless as HD-DVD is dead and was never used for gaming anyway. If the 360 had a built-in HD-DVD drive for games, then it wouldn't have this whole multi disc debacle.
The only reason I can think of for this game using 23GB is uncompressed data. I was thinking padding at first, but that wouldn't make sense as Blu-Rays don't need padding.
see that bots if this game comes to you then it's be hmmmm how many dvd's 23/8=2.8 dvds witch means 3 loool the [email protected] can't handle a last gen game what a waste
50GB Blu Ray Disk FTW
... which it isn't. Notice no one stated that "GOW Collection is too big to be played on a PS3..."
Was anybody actually "wondering" this?
Those that have GOW Collections and have downloaded the Dante's Inferno demo. Play DI demo and then play GOW II from the Collections. Which game do you think looks better? I was kind of shocked because GOW II from the collections looks better to me...GOW II has 2xAA and better textures. DI has no AA. Both games are locked at 60FPS.
GoWII in particular looks amazing. The lighting, the bloom effects, the anti-aliasing, everything looks and feels more polished than DI. However, the only thing that is lacking (obviously) is the textures. But for an up-resed PS2 game, it's amazingly comparable.
you know how i know you guys are gay ^^^ cause you say A game is better than another but your not playing it and act like girls and hate a console. you guys fail at life
The GOW 1 and 2 were in DVD9 (Dual Layer) and according to the TOC lists we find in the internet, 7.93GB and 7.94, plus 6.19GB of the extra disc of GOW2 (that's the size according with sites where you can download the ISOs) = 22.06. And eats 23 GB of a BR, that can means, 400 MB only used to put them in HD (?) It's that correct? If the ps2 games (almost all) were below the limit of a single layer of a DVD, that can represents almost 45GB or 20 GB free in a BR... Sony can put many more games in a BR, 5 to 10, this may represent that in the future will be another HD remakes COMPILATIONS, that only take a matter of megabytes? : ICO + Shadow of the Colossus Call of duty SW Battlefronts Gran Turismos Ace Combats Final Fantasy Prince of Persia Need for Speed Onimusha Soul Calibur Etc.
