Ther DVD size limit doesn't make any difference really, you just get a second disc. I don't see the big deal over this, there's quite a few multi disc games on the Xbox 360 (Halo ODST, Forza 3, Lost Odyssey, Rage). Most people will just install all discs and then play off one disc. Those that can't due to no HDD can at least play the game (though they can use a USB storage device). PS3 users will probably have a mandatory install (have no idea if Sony have developed better technnologies to get around this or not), I think being forced into an install is worse than having the choice to install or not, personally (though why anyone wouldn't install anyway is beyond me).
Overall though I don't see why any of this really matters. Or is this just another thread to try and justify expensive PC purchases? I wonder how many DVDs a hard copy of Battlefield 3 would take up on PC? Or how long it would take to download. Of course that doesn't matter does it?
Just silly really.

They have a different disc format now. It allows up to around 8gb of data allocated to a game. Before it was around 7gb.
