God of BluRay
Via Twitter earlier today, Tim Moss, Director of Technology at Sony Santa Monica, had this to tweet about the upcoming PS3 Exclusive, God O f War 3;
“GOW3 35Gb of goodness. Thank heavens for Dual Layer Blu-Rays”.
The last PS3 exclusive to utilise a dual layer BluRay disc was Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid 4, a game in which Kojima admitted came close to filling up the 50 GB of space the dual layered BR discs offer.
Unlike previous installments in the GOW series, GOW 3 will have no CG cutscenes. In comparison, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIII will consume 32.6GB of CG movies and only 6.8GB of game content making GOW 3 nearly 6x the size of Square Enix’s flagship rpg in terms of actual game content.
God of War 3 has officially gone gold and will hit store shelves March 16th.
