Resistance to occupy 22 GB
A reminder of the perks of HD storage: Insomniac Games' Ryan Schneider says that their PS3 launch title will swallow up a colossal 22 gigabytes on its Blu-Ray disc, making it one of the largest (if not the largest) games ever made. By contrast, the DVD's used for the 360 can hold just 8 GB. Even an HD-DVD disc tops out at 15 GB. The reason for Resistance's girth is said to be its graphics, level, and programming resources, with music and voice content filling up a mere 1 GB. If nothing else, the PS3 should see plenty of games with high-resolution textures.
