foogledricks Posted July 12, 2005 Report Share Posted July 12, 2005 A feather in Sony's cap that I hadn't considered with regard to Blue-Ray. The DreamStation Blogcast quoted Team Ninja as showing concern that the 360 will only support DVD. This is because cut-scenes for the 360 will be in 1280x720, taking up a TON of space. And apparently, Japanese developers love to make pre-rendered cut scenes. So, the result will be that developers will either have to cut back on cut scenes, compress the hell out of them, switch to in-engine, or cut back on game content to fit what they want on 360 discs. The PS3 in contrast will give developers a lot more headroom. This is a significant limitation that I hadn't thought of. Team Ninja says that the DOA4 trailer, in 1280x720, would have been 2 gigs (nearly 1/4 of an entire 360 disc). That's not good for Microsoft. And as I said, a feather in the cap of Sony for choosing Blue-Ray. ADMIN EDIT: The previous thread was almost at the 400 post marker so it's about time we get a new one started.
