Resistance = 17.75GB of garbage?
Resistance developers Insomniac stated that the game took up 22GB of space and that all those bits and bytes were necessary to make the game work. It would seem that ripping the disk in Linux shows otherwise.
Don’t be surprised if Blu-ray turns out to be the next Sony format debacle. It’s one thing to turn around and force feed the consumer with Blu-ray on the back of the PlayStation brand, but to say a next-gen game can’t be done on DVD after we’ve all seen and hopefully played Gears of war on that very format. More storage space is nice of course, but only for Sony at this point. There not thinking about the consumer with Blu-ray when it ultimately comes down to them saving money on manufacturing multiple disk for different regions. As far as Blu-ray is concerned it’s theoretically only potentially needed for movie’s, not games, unless your talking about a Final Fantasy game where your doing more movie watching than playing of the game.
