No, it means they had to cut texture res and item detail in order to fit w/in the 1 DL DVD requirement for the 360.

This. The article says that nothing was sacrificed to fit it on one disc, but the quote in the article talks about compressing assets. Which clearly means something had to be sacrificed.

What requirement? Rage was multiple disks on 360.

You do realise even for a console they have another 2gb to work with. You can fit up to 8gb of game data on one disc.

For the record the Xbox 360 install size is 3.8gb.

Nice try though.

Original Oblivion without expansions was something like 4GB (I think SI was 1.5 and KON was idk... something under 1GB).

While Skyrim's animations are miles better, graphics aren't THAT much... it's still really pretty IMO not just in the same league IMO as some FPS.

I'm barely concerned, even though I expected something like two double-layer disks (~17GB).

Like somebody before mentioned, Just Cause 2 is only 4 GB and it's map is insanely larger than any last three TES games. And graphics are one of the prettier that I've saw, same goes for Far Cry 2. I think that Oblivion and Skyrim's maps are around 16 square miles and map for JC2 is something like 400 square miles... Just a thought.

I'm personally more interested with content than visual stuff... I'm currently playing original TES Arena and frankly I'm suffering cause of all that uglyness still it's '94 but game feels like TES and I like it.

The biggest pro for TES games IMO is immersion... BUT not with graphics or sounds, it's the amount of guests... I've finished 214 Oblivion quests from GOTY edition, and that's where my love for Oblivion per say comes from, especially after going through awesome guild quests like from Assassin's Guild.

Graphics on Oblivion are still really pretty for me, and the most precious moments in the game that I hope they will preserve in Skyrim are night "walks". The sky is really pretty, everything is quiet, shadows are really nice and if you're in a tall place view is awesome, it might sound weird for some but sometimes when I meditate one of the places I visit (in my mind) is the Shivering Isles. Those weird colored skies really relaxes me. Ok enough with the weird talk.

To get back on subject, I think it's nothing to be worried about and I'm sure mods will take care of things that need to be taken care of, after all they've said that creation kit will be included. Yay!

The funniest thing is that's the only part that was funny... Nevertheless, I was firstly concerned about Just Cause 2 and Far Cry 2 as well. From my experience, the games size is rarely a big determinator on game's quality. Take SW The Force Unleashed Sith edition or whatnot, something like 20 GB and game was crap.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, TFU II was a lot smaller, something like 6 GB I think, and I assume graphics and other "stuff" was upgraded a bit... jk... only maybe visually and "for audio" (I'm not sure about the right word, English not native language). Nevertheless it's still one of the worst games I've ever played, unfortunately. That's coming from big SW geek/fan.

I... really don't even care if Skyrim is a console port. All I want are at least semi-decent PC optimizations. Even Capcom somehow manages to do that where almost all other companies fail.

Offtopic: Yes, DMC 4 was for example a great port IMO. BUT then nice people at Capcom canceled DMC 5 for PC and I was itsy bitsy gonna explode. I mean come on.
Capcom instantly dropped down from top three dev company.
Hopefully they will make it eventually like with most stuff they make. Something like half year later.

Hopefully this is true and not just because its lacking content. I thought it was because the map size was going to be small. Though it is smaller than Cyrodiil, its should still be good.

Now when are they ever going to make the game have the whole map on this engiine? I dont mind having a >50GB game.
