[FPSWin] Why Skyrim Is Just 6GB - Page 11

post #101 of 223
Sorry guys, but overall GOTY will go to Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception anyway, whether we like it or not.

For PC, It will most likely be Portal 2/Skyrim. BF3 loses points in SP, but wins MP overall w/ graphics/sound.

My prediction.

Let's just hope the 6Gb isnt from the lack of textures, features, graphical elements and polish of bugs, but instead it's because of Bethesda's "superior" compression.

i thought i heard something about procedural texturing at some point. it's almost like the opposite of the mega texturing in rage.

These types of runs are usually just to beat the final boss.

FYI you don't know what you are talking about. What was the point of your post? Seems to me like you are just trolling.

Dont care if its 6GB, just means more space on my SSD. I spend days just exploring every inch of map in Elder Scrolls.
Why... cause its fun. Thats all I care for, I know it will have improved visuals. Just want to play, thats all and have fun.
Now how hard is that to do.

So since Rage was on multiple discs on 360, Skyrim had to be on one?

Dual layers can hold 8+GB anyways.

Love the wild speculation presented as fact.
