We all knew you'd like it...

But yeah, it's pretty funny. If you were a huge fanboy or something it'd be different (yet still a little funny lol).

Just when I was about to try to kill another link with another confirmation of MGS4 for 360 judging by the title, this turned out to be actually a great post. Great idea there.

That picture is hillarious.

One of the biggest mistake that M$ made was leaving a last gen disc drive in the 360 making it EXTREMELY hard for developers to cram games onto less than 5 gig disks. Even Rockstar came out and said in their latest article in GI that they are having big troubles cramming GTA4 onto a standard DVD disc and M$ isn't cooperating at all.

I don't see why they just don't put it on two discs. That's what ended up happening with Lost Odessey, they had to put it on four discs.

Think about it... Driving, Driving, Driving, get to the next Island, please inset disk 3, inserts disk 3, driving, driving, oh no, I forgot, the hooker's on the other island, driving, driving, please insert disk 1.

For some games that'd be fine, like pretty much all non-free-roam games, but with the games that you can free-roam in, it'd suck...

Exactly. And M$ isn't granting them access to utilize the HD for game development since not all 360 owners have one. So Rockstar (and any dev making a huge game) really has their hands tied and has to spend more time and money compressing the hell out of info to make it fit on that standard DVD. It's going to be the 360s early downfall when game start getting more complex as the years go on. That's when your going to see the Ps3 flourish.

I would buy the HD DVD drive if MGS4 came to the 360! still cheaper than buying a ps3 aswell.

The only problem you got there Kev is that the 360's HD-DVD drive cannot run games. It can only run movies. So you are kind off out of luck unless they release one that will run games, but that will have to cost at least $200 (as the first drive started off), and $350 + $200 = $550, which is more than a 60 GB PS3. It will also bring up more problems because then game makers will have to release games on multiple disk formats for one console just because not everyone will have the HD-DVD drive.

Just to clear things up ABC, the DVD's the 360 uses can hold a little over 8GB, one misfortunate example would have to be what Epic had to do with Unreal Tournament 3. They reached the max on the DVD's and had to cut a few maps from the 360 version, I'm just glad these maps will still be present on the PS3 version. The 360 userbase doesn't have to worry though, these maps will be available for download off the marketplace (at a price I presume, as Microsoft has forced Epic into selling maps for Gears although Epic's intentions was to give it for free). I only see this as adding complication for the online community as not all 360 users will have the maps that come standard on the PS3 version...I also see this as just the beginning of watered down versions of multiplatform games for the 360...Microsoft forced the 360 out before having the time to make it the best it could have been (an HD-DVD drive standard and Hard Drive standard would have just been heavenly and less complicated for devs)...

Yes, they are dual layered. My fault. Even so, as an audio engineer I can fill half of an 8gig disk with just sound! What the hell was M$ thinking? This just completely ties the hands of the developers as games become more and more complex. Hence the reason I will be making the switch to the Ps3 as it gains a stronger foothold on the industry as time goes by.

I love my 360 and like I said, the only thing wrong IMO about having multple disks would be in any free-roam type game... Especially if it has online capabilities, it'd be impossible...

Oh didnt know that, well i spose a newer drive then but what i mean about cheaper than getting a ps3 is, i already have the 360 so its either a $200 drive or a $550 ps3, make sense?

But unless you watch a lot of movies and own an HDTV, the HD drive for the 360 is useless. Gates already publicly said that the HD drive add-on will NEVER be used to run video games.

Whatever... all im saying is that i would buy a new drive, even if microsoft made a bluray drive (they wont i know) then i would buy that addon rather than the PS3.

But im getting a ps3 some day anyways so either way i win :D

I think the HiDef drive should be used for games, all it will take is a software update to utilise it. Or go for the hardDrive option.

To tell the truth i dont think it matters all that much, you can fit a huge game on a 8gb DVD, it's just hi def movies and music that some devs want on their game that takes up the space.

Well first off you can't make the HD-DVD drive read games, its like saying, "lets buy a cheapy CD-R drive and update it with a patch to read Bluray!" It's not possible...believe me I've looked at the facts online and it's not possible.... (insert frowning face thing here)

Oh and another thing,

Imagine yourself downloading a full episode of Family Guy and putting it on your new PSP Light, its a couple hundred megabits, and you are left with 25MB of space on your 1GB memory stick. You have an option to compress it to save you memory but you know that your going to your friends house and he has an HD-TV you can connect the PSP to and watch that episode on. If you compress it you will lose image and sound quality. It's a simple argument on quality vs quantity. I prefer quality and is another reason I love my PS3. Quality games.

Now before you go on about me bashing the 360, I'm not. So don't turn this post around. I was simply giving an example.

odhranus

fair enough, some valid points there.
I thought playing games on the HD drive would be possible. Oh well.
To tell the truth I'm not that bothered about the differences between the two consoles, both do their job, they do their job well.

You've got that backwards... Or somehow all screwed up. As far as I know, it goes something like CD>DVD>HD-DVD>Bluray. I'm 10000% sure that my DVD burner can burn/read both CDs and DVDs. So in all reality, the HD-DVD player, SHOULD be able to play games because they're written on Dual-layer DVDs.
