    could be, could not be, really, i heard lots of people constantly saying "mortal kombat deception will 100% be a dvd-9" and it's released....and it's not, filled up the whole dvd, but still not dvd-9, personaly i'd say it's 50/50 if it's dvd-9 or not, i live in a little crap hole town, so i have the advantage of it being out everywhere else in the world for about 3 days before the walmart here even gets it :p i hope it's single layer and it's hdloader compatable :)

    The new GTA will be DVD-9, it's new features won't fit or run on a DVD-5 disc, read up on the information before making a statement next time.

    DVD-5 is slightly smaller than DVD-9 and runs slower, but it's not noticable.

    GTA:SA will be DVD9 sevral game sites already said that...

    all i can say is whatever...

    actualy theres no such thing as features that dont run on dvd9 and not on dvd5.. lol dude the game is only bigger nothing changed...

    dvd5 is "slightly" smaller? eh... how can it be slightly smaller if the size goes from 4.7gbytes(1000bytes and not 1024)... to full dvd9 8.4gbytes(1000bytes) lol thats half the size man!!... they both run at the same speed as the drive can read them.. the drive actauly determine the speed of the spin.. normally they both can be run at 16x...

    now all i can say is "read up on the information before making a statement next time"

    halo2 is a dvd 9, but there is a dvd5 extractor to make halo 2 fit onto the size of a regular dvd..

    i am sure there will be a program to make GTA:SA fit on my dvd.

    actually the full zice of halo2 was 4.77 gigs, and i could not overburn this one.

    i had to make it into a dvd 5 , but there seems to be no loss in anything.

    hey i found a quote that its says it may be a dvd-5 disk look

    [bold] In a bit of a twist of what was initially reported to many news sites from developer Rockstar Games, it appears GTA: San Andreas may have been released as a DVD5 disc after all... at least according to THIS release (4,499,767,296 bytes) by warez group PARANOiD. Those who would like to discuss this further can do so in THIS on-going Forum thread, and feel free to check out the filelist.txt from the release too. More to come! [/bold]

    Be very happy everyone. You don't need a dual layer burner to bacx up your game because San Andreas is DVD5.
