This is great news because while no games have gone to the 50GB limit, wouldn't it allow games which had a little over 25GB to keep all the content on? I'm no expert, so please call me on it, but discs come in either 25GB or 50GB, the latter being more expensive. Now it makes sense for developers to cut down the content if it comes nowhere near the 50GB limit does it not?
My reason is being that you pay for 50GB and not 27GB or 32GB etc, it is not cost effective, and the more profitable option would be a slimming down package. Now, say a game originally had 29.53GB of data, it can all be included on this new media disc instead of losing the 4.53GB in order to make the cut off. Can someone with more knowledge either verify this or call me on it?
P.S: Also, think about this move as a way to provide more space for 3D gaming as promised by Sony for 2010. 3D takes up a lot more space than the same data without the 3D capabilities. Just something to ponder
