50gig MGS4...Kojima wants^^

mgs4.jpgThis enticing piece of news might spur on the current debate over the correct format for the Next Gen Consoles. Recently Hideo Kojima said that "Blu-Ray is too small for Metal Gear Solid 4."

Currently the Blu-Ray disks can hold around 25 GB, but he wants the newer 50 GB Blue Ray disk, which is not a Dual layer 25 GB disk.

Apparently Hideo Kojima believes that what you do with in game sound can fill up the disk rather quickly this leads us to believe that the new MGS may have an ace up its sleeve, perhaps some thing never before seen in a game, though we can't be sure what yet. This seems to be the reason why he needs a larger disk.

Well this now raises the question, will MGS4 come to the Xbox 360? The current reports indicated that this is indeed the case, though whether it will come out on a few disks or be compressed onto one is still to be answered!

50 gigs... Dual layered DVDs are 9.4 so 6 DVDs MGS4 really NEED to show that its BETTER than any other 360 games to call it a success. If MGS4 becomes the "best" game then Sony can/should boast about the size of the storage.

The only reason I would think Kojima would want everything on one disc is because the game will require the player to go back to previous areas ala Metroid/Castlevania. To go back and forth between disc for stage changes would just be plain retarded. MGS has always been a game where you RARELY go back to a previous stage.

It's mostly cause it's being formatted for the bluray format, so it will probably look better in terms of quality than if it was on the 360 which would have to compress them to fit to a DVD.

I am saying that size wont matter if the game cant beat the quality of 2nd gen 360 games. If it beats the 2nd gen 360 games - Bioshock, halo3, maximum effect etc. then space might have an impact for gaming.

I having a hard time believing he needs this much space.

...isn't 25 gigs enough for him to put all of his Japanese idols videos and images.

Well put. He is buying his own hype.

MGS isn't good. It never was. It never will be. It's just another overhyped piece of crap like Halo. "Look! I have to hold three buttons and then press the fourth to shoot!" PATHETIC!

yeah, is not as good PR as nintendo's " Twilight Princess will be the best Zelda in history"

or miyamoto's "I cannot go back to play zelda with a GC controler"
