just a thought on the xbox360 and ps3 versions of this game

i was thinking regarding the size of the c.d's and the fact that there will be excusive downloadable content for the xbox360, maybe this is because of the lack of size of the c.d's for xbox with ps3 having blue ray (50 odd gigs) and xboxs 9dvd (9 odd gigs)
anyway the point im making that they can fit all of the detail on ps3 but because of the lack dvd size, on the xbox u will have to download what the blue ray will have, if u get what im saying
basicaly as an example on ps3 u can go to all the citys as you prgress through the game
but in xbox u have to compleate a section *libirty city* then have to download the content to get to vice city and so on and so forth

sorry i probs dont make much sence but its really late

I'm pretty sure Rockstar is going to limit everything so it can all fit fine on both disks.

We won't be seeing games that completely use up even a single layer BR for a few years. It wouldn't be fair with GTA IV at least, promised for the 360 and PS3, but the PS3 gets an advantage because of the larger disk so it gets more content. In the future if Sony takes back that exclusivity, it's possible.

Does Rock* really have to adhere to that ? I mean PS3 users or paying more for thier console. So why not let PS3 put more on the Disk....just a thought

It seems unfair thay PS3 would be restricted to use the full capicity of the BR. That seems unfair aswell , the future doesnt last long in this age.EDIT : Tech. changes fast ,sometimes in just months.

The thing you guys need to know, yes the 360 Uses DVD9 compared to Blu Ray it may seem small, but Blu Ray has a much slower read time, which in a game like GTA is crucial. So in terms, in the time it takes for the PS3 to read a stream of Uncompressed Data, the 360 could of read a couple of compressed files making up the same area. You may think size matters, but so does Speed, they all balance out in terms of gaming.

There shouldn't be any comparing of the media or consoles, in the end both consoles will have the same game.
