    How does small = bad? Have you taken a look inside an Xbox? Over half of it is completely wasted space.

    I don't know about that .. Nintendo's always been really good about keeping their systems hard for pirating..

    I'm not sure of the specifics, but it's made so that a computer can't read the discs. It requires the manipulation of PSO to get the gamecube to rip the game and stream the data to a waiting PC. In fact, if Sega hadn't made PSO for GC, there probably still wouldn't be a way to boot backups.

    ummm killerc... the xbox and ps2 never used 4.7gb discs.... they were actually dual layer DVD-9 discs holding 8.5GB the discs you are talking about is dvd-5 discs... the blank ones used to burn onto... then there is also dvd-10 discs which are single layer 2 sided dvds

    Did any of the games actually use the dual-layer technology?

    Revolution will have the same media as the Xbox 360,
    I think PS3 using blue ray is dumb.

    Most games on the PS2 dont even use half a Gig, what are they gonna do with 25 Gigs?
    and if there is a game that takes all that space its got to be a
    long azz game

    I think the only noticeable thing blu-ray will do is help with the piracy issue, along with hyping the system like CD media did for the PSX.

    NA im shocked out of my face that people are already ripping NGC games even tho the disc spin anticlockwise, theres always away round it.

    yes all the games did... you know when you see the gold haze on the dvds like movies... those are dvd-9 discs... so yes all the dvds used dual layer

    and solaray.... blu-ray holds 50gbs and there are prototype bue-rays that are dual layer and hold 100gb

    Oh man, its the dumbest thing in the world, you can be the biggest game developer making long azz games like zelda and final fantisy and you will not even fill up 2GB even if you tired your best to.

    Too much space for what????? its pointless and i bet the transfer speed isnt that good anyway.

    Blueray is not for the game industry, what games need is a fast transfer rate not more space. I cant believe Xbox360 only has a 12X DVD reader thats shameful thats like 10MB/s on average (considering faster speeds on outer sectors).
    You can buy a 12x DVD reader for the same price as a quater bottle of brandy.

    Id rather get drunk then to wait for loading!
