I agree with you. I have seen a few games recently in the 6.5-7.5 range that were very very (vveerryy) short... just made me wonder what people thought of this.

There had better be a damned good reason that PC games need that much storage space, and that reason had best be a 25 hour or longer campaign.

Isn't Blu Ray slow as *****? On the PS3 you have to install many games due to the Blu Ray drive not being able to read them fast enough or something like that. I don't remember where I read/heard it but I wouldn't be surprised if it was true.

Edit: OCN automatically censors swears? Awesome! Now I don't need to put asterisks in myself xD

Don't really see the point of it?

Whats the benefit?

What can Blu-Ray do for games, that the DVD cant already do... other then better video clips... not like it would have any effect on the game itself.

As for Blu-ray itself... Its soon going the way of the Do-do Bird, and you can thank Sony for that, because they dragged on their legal war over HD vs Bluray, it delayed the technology standard by quite a few years... and by the time it was settled on Bluray, well...

The Times had already moved on, and now everything is going to digital download...

So yea.

Sony screwed up...

After all, just look at all the video rental companies and how much they're struggling to keep up. Who wants to rent a movie these days, when they can just watch it for free online or download it for far cheaper then a rental?

Good bye Bluray, I expect it to be phased out within the next year at least... which, does upset me, cause I own one.

I believe the blue laser is "weaker" than a red laser (cd/dvd) which allows more data to be written on the disc.

I still rock the HD-DVD player on my 360. Still need to buy some bundles off of ebay to build my collection.

"But rangerscott why would you buy a dead format that sucks blah blah blah?"

Cause they be super cheap and I watch movies when I'm home. I don't pack up a movie collection when I go out of town. Also I've compared same movies on HD-dvd and blu ray and I find the HD-DVD to be more clear most of the time. I used the same TV, same hook ups with the 360 and PS3.

I can't even believe this post lol.

What's the benefit? More storage space. This allows for more content and larger textures. Currently games are around the size they are because devs are cutting them DOWN to fit onto the DVD, not because they don't need any more space. A bluray would allow the developer to just put the game they want out, without having to make sure it fits into a smaller space.

Secondly, bluray is not going anywhere anytime soon. Digital distribution is in no way set up to take over home theater any time soon. Netflix might be able to in ~5 years, but no sooner then that.

Why are you blaming Sony for the war VS HD-DVD? Both sides wanted their technology to win, and Sony's won the market over. Plain and simple. There was no way it could have happened without a "war".

Bluray movies will be released for a good time coming still... what's debatable is if PC games or applications will ever use them.

I actually prefer to rent a DVD. I don't have a Blu Ray player yet, but I have absolutely horrid download speed. I'm supposed to be getting 6 mb/s but I usually get 1 mb/s. The ping is ridiculously high, movies take forever to download and netflix stutters like hell for me. I have Clear (Clearwire) which operates off 4G/LTE or something like that. My mom doesn't really care because whenever the internet is down (like 4 times a day) she just tells me AT&T because we don't have Fiber, and they buy the cheapest package possible which is like 2 mb/s or something like that. So downloading an HD video would take ages. Redbox/Blockbuster is still extremely popular in areas like this so if for some reason the physical distribution method would just disappear, people would be pretty pissed.

Rentals perhaps, but Blu-ray sales seem decent enough and there will always be folks like myself that strongly prefer physical media. Digital distribution is but one method of obtaining content, not necessarily the best.

I've always wondered if games would ever start coming on small USB flash drives. Those things are getting so cheap these days they are almost disposable.
