    Wow, MGS4 must be a really futuristic detailed game. It's the reason I'm buying a PS3 to be honest, oh and tekken 6.

    Off topic: by the way, when is tekken 6 released?

    Crap man, just make multiple disks. Final Fantasy 7 did that, and lowered their price drom $50 to $40 on the USA launch. I still have my Gamepro magazine where they list FF7 as $50. I still have my preorder slip where I bought the game for $40, and that was a 3 disk game. Konami should take a not from Square, and multi disk the game.

    Don't give me that crap that Blue Ray costs more. It actually doesn't. The sole reason Sony backed Blue Ray, is it's cheaper to produce than HD DVD.

    Okay thanks Celestial. Yeah tekken games are great, I think the best ones were tekken 3, tekken tag tournament and tekken 5 so far. Hopefully tekken 6 will be even better. :)

    I'm assuming this just means endless amounts of HD FMV - I'd say it's unlikely that the ingame graphics/engine (models/tm) and audio is taking up much room, relatively speaking (vs. FMV).

    I hope I'm wrong and there's *massive* amounts of in-game content (since I'd prefer not to sit and watch 15-20 minute movie interludes).

    For the record HD-DVD was actually cheaper (both from a licensing model and mastering costs).

    Sony holds a few patents to some of the low level tech, but the BD Association is the controlling entity which regulates and defines the specification. By some people's estimates, Sony has ~30% of the IP which is mainly shared among the founding CE companies of Sony, Panasonic and Pioneer.

    I liked Tekken 1 and 2 most because they had Jun, I was amazing with her! And Tekken 5 because of Asuka who was pretty much the same as Jun. Tekken 3 was soooo much fun because of the beach ball thing. :) Tekken 4 was still amazing, always played with Christie/Eddie. Tekken Tag was brilliant too because of all the moves you could do with switching characters. lol

    Im gona go ahead and guess htat none of you have been following MGS4 as i have

    MGS4 is on a 50GB blu-ray disk not 25 GB

    man this game is huge, and no its not gonna be on multiple disks.

    and for anyone wondering if they took any features off cause of this, yes, their isnt multiple languages, NA has english and whatnot, so NA will not get Chienese on it or some other language

    and for the rest of you, 4 hours of cutscenes baby, but if you dont like cutscenes then well no MGS game is for you

    This is coming from the company that invented the 6-8 hour cinematic experience. So MGS4 probably has a 20-25 hour storyline?

    Too bad Hollywood didn't take a single note from them. I just hope MGS stays on consoles and away from, "Rape Everything Decent" Hollywood.

    4 hours worth of cut scenes? Holy crap! But nevertheless, if I ever buy a PS3 and get MGS4 I'll watch every second of the cut scenes. And to think a 50GB Blu Ray player can't handle all of the original MGS4, that just speaks more about the lack of Sony taking true gaming into consideration.

    um have you EVER played a metal gear game? it shouldn't come as a surprise that there are that log a cutscenes. metal gear's esence comes from cutscenes more then gameplay.

    As for this news, i think it may actaully be a sort of publicity stunt form the boys at kojima.

    user says

    "OMG PNZERZ!!!! if the ps3 can bearly handle it, its gotta be awesome!!!!!!"

    I personally love watching every single cut-scene that the MGS series has to offer, so I am sure that the final game in the series will definitely go out with a massive bang. :lol:
