Lots of BD Disk Space!
You’ve heard them.
Yup, you’ve heard them.
If you’re watching the whole PS3 scene at all, you’ve heard the naysayers complain about the BD drive. You’ve heard them say that 9GB is more than plenty for any next-gen game, including those on the PS3.
Now MTV has talked to Insomniac Games, and has found out that the game currently occupies about 22GB of disc space. 1GB of that is music and vocals. The rest is graphics, level data, and programming code.
I’ve heard from other places that BD affords developers new opportunities. Game sound can be stored at a higher sampling rate. More varieties of sound can be used. Textures can be stored in a higher resolution and size.
BD is going to make PS3 games better than otherwise. And I’m glad to hear it.
