4.7 is huge... really big... very large... monsterous... i.e. not small.
i could be wrong, but are there any other games on other consoles being released exclusively on the higher capacity DVDs?
hey guys, i was just thinking about wii discs they are only 4.7gig(dvd5), does anyone else think this is a bit small?? when do you think nintendo will use larger discs, whats the biggest size wii can handle(i know that it cant do bluray or hddvd) oh yeh would it really effect games
4.7Gb DVD's are not big, think of the context in which they're used. Vice City alone was about 1.5Gb (I believe) and San Andreas about 4. Games take up a lot of space, my guess being that Wii games even more because of the information they need to be able to interpret for controller operation and motion sensing (Such as Zelda and Metroid, holy crap).

Well you can also have double layered disks like brawl that will have twice that in memory
Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Sonic and the Secret Rings, Warioware Smooth Moves, Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock, Super Paper Mario, Wii Play, Mercury Meltdown Revolution, Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz

controller operation won't bloat the software... it's in the Wii OSOriginally Posted by 261311
a combo of remote moves will not be any more taxing that a combo of button mashing moves on a traditional controller.
so i quote below...

Well I don't think its small for what the Wii can handle, I mean look at Brawl.
All those modes, characters etc. stuffed onto one disc? Unbelievable!
At least we don't have to worry about two discs like we did with the Gamecube.

to answer the OP's question. it wont affect games on the wii. if you look at it practically, the wii has the capability of have much longer games then the 360. just on a side note, DVD's have a silver base and a DVD DL has a gold base. but the only game on wii to use DL is brawl. galaxy didnt even use DL.
As mentioned, the Wii can handle 8.5 DL-DVDs (Brawl) as well. If that's all the all-powerful 360 needs, I'm sure we can make do with it as well.Originally Posted by uk_louis_1986
