PlayStation 3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man will reportedly take a staggering 22 gigabytes of storage space using the PS3's Blu-ray disc format.
....of CGI cutscenes and loading times.
Hehe, Do I smell....Jealousy?
No you can have those, I will stay with the fast ones.
How the hell do you know that 22 gigs = long loading times?
can u smell sony bs ? OH YEEEESSSS LOL
Oh wait, that would make the loading times too long! Of course they are going to be big, they use crappy compression, and fill the game with hours of cut-scenes. Microsoft has better compression tools and a faster drive, so they don't have to be huge files. Why does something that is 22Gb look the same as something that is under 9Gb??? Sony wants us to think we need that extra space but the developers know we dont.
bad optimized programmer coding!
Code is very very small. Most of that space is actually content like mesh data, textures, normal maps, bump maps, diffuse maps, animation, sound, etc. Your logic is "if games have only been on DVDs, why do we suddenly need 22 gigs?" when what you should be asking is "if a PS3 launch title is already hitting 22 gigs, how long have developers felt held back by DVD-9?"
the fact that the actual code doesnt take up much space when written properly doesnt change the fact that a 22gb game is totaly full of fat, cgi, and other signs of lazy game design. can you think of any GOOD games on the PC, which could really take up as much space as need be since most computers nowadays have 60+ gig HDD's? I mean think about it a game like guild wars with both parts is HUGE in explorible area and play time ect. yet the space it takes up on your HDD is quite minimal and could easily fit onto one dvd (thats both games i might add) so simply put this is lazy programming and sony trying to pretend that we NEED blu-ray for ganes when we DO NOT!
ARE FING IDIOTS!!!
I'm an all-round gamer, but everyone knows this is bullsh*t. I mean come on! How can games go from 4-5GB to 22 frickin GB!!!!!! This is posted by Kingboy so that worries me.
if it's 22 gigs of gameplay. I'm impressed. if it's 6 gigs of game play, and the rest is cinematics, cutscenes, and a behind the scenes footage of "the making of", then not so much...
They will probable have a 1080P movie showing the making of the game.
lol looks like i`m the talk of the town today.posted my me means what?
But, atleast you did the XBOX 360 article showing that HD-DVD is better and preferred over Blu Ray.
Its all over now, take it like a man.
My goodness, does Sony not have a good compression tool? But that is massive, I wonder if its all necessary, but yea, high def CG videos would probably take up alot but its strange to see a FPS with so much data on one game. But bigger sometimes doesnt mean better, like said could be compression issues, or many hd cgs
If you xbox fanboys knew anything about the game you would know there are no cg videos in the game.
"We're also going to tell the in-game story in what we think is a unique way, using a combination of in-game cinematics and CG movies" -- Ted Price And if you're implying that im an xbox fanboy you couldn't be more wrong =D
George foreman eat your heart out:))
if you refer that the ps3 = the foreman grill Then know that the grill has sold more than 55 million around the world.
It's also significantly less than $500 for a low end model. Hell, it's even significantly less than $500 for a high end model.
No matter how good the PS3 is, the 360 haters are so jealous, that they turn anything good, into bad. 22 Gigs, NO MATTER what, means that games are already reaching that level where DVD's are becomming obsolete. 360 owners would have this game on 3 DVD's! LOL. Thats funny. This game is gonna ROCK! I cant wait to pplay you guys online. Hey, 360 Fool........RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
if it was on 360 it would be on ONE DVD disc with the same level of graphics.
This is the biggest load of crap yet. A full length HD movie takes up this amount of space. Video takes up way more space than game code and so I'm calling bull on this one. And here is another little winger for you: if movies weren't compressed the hell out of them they wouldn't fit on 10 BD discs.
gamecode ? no, textures, and good audio quality you moron.
A normal dvd9 holds, what 8.5 gb? This game is 22gb. So all this 'They need to learn data compression' is crap. You telling me 13.5gb of this game is pure bad programming, or sloppy programming? I don't think so. It's called content. Something the dvd9 can't handle
Have you ever unzipped a file?
Ok, how in the eff could they possibly use 22GB. I agree, the load times must be absolutely horrendous. This game kind of seems like a Halo/Gears/(insert all others here) Defend Earth rip-off (not that im claiming Halo was the original, haha can you tell I love xbox?). I like the fact that they point out that the highest capacity PC game is 7GB. Trust me, any good game shouldnt need much more, if that.
its just not compressed. nothing amazing about that.
come down to earth,this is HD era son!! wake uuuupp i`m from reading the final would take 30gb
all you fools do is make excuses. Like yall are programmers. "trust me, any good game shouldnt need much more than 7GB" What losers you idiot 360 fans are. Get a clue you idiots, your 360 cant handle it. 22 GB no matter how you put it is sweet, with more game content. lets see which game will be bigger, Gears Of War, or Resistance. HAHA. You guys are a joke.
Actually i am a programmer thanks, in school for it, nice try at a burn tho ;). If you use bump maps and program the code rather then using full models, you will decrease model size and therefor full disk size. Microsoft wants you to be efficient doing that because it takes less processing power to render the models when they are mostly code.
