20gb of textures only the power of the ps3 and blue ray can handle that..

EDIT: Blue ray will have the advantage here and will handle the game better..This gen is goin to required bigger space for games..

not really. he did mention the 360 and pc too. do you it have on mute?

SwiderMan4243d ago

Not to take sides in a fanboy fight, but don't you think a PS3 fanboy would know how to spell "Blu-ray" without the 'e'? That should offend both Xbox 360 AND PS3 gamers.

you would need around 20gigs of ram. if those textures were uncompressed.

CrazzyMan4243d ago

btw, demo is nice.
i wonder on what pc it was running, and how it was optimized for ps3, and how will run on both ps3 and x360 consoles. :)

motorstorm 2, on this engine, or somehow combined.. would look like on e3 2k5. =)

Xi4243d ago

how long it takes to stream uncompressed textures with out repeating textures? Right... Unless copied to ram, or compressed it would take to long to load.

CrazzyMan4242d ago (Edited 4242d ago )

that`s why gears of war and LAIR looks so good, with only 512MB on board.

The tech demo was running on a Mac.

A revised ver will be shown at E3 for the Mac.
