[Answered] Do PS3 backup games have the same "quality" as retail games
I was looking at the backup of Metal Gear Solid 4 and the backup size was 17.8 GB where as the retail games is 50 GB.
How is there such a difference in size, what is being sacrificed? Would backups have the same quality as in graphics as normal PS3 games? Guessing from the size, there is something thats being sacrificed for the sake of size
Blu-Ray discs are capable of holding "up to" 50 GB of data, but there is yet to be a game that uses that much capacity. FFXIII comes close, but most games fall well short of that. That said, games ripped using the backup manager are complete in every way, and aside from faster loading times, are indistinguishable from the real thing.
