Just How Big Is God of War III?

There's no denying it. Upcoming PS3 exclusive God of War III is a big game. But how big is big?

"35Gb of goodness," tweeted Sony Santa Monica Director of Technology Tim Moss. "Thank heavens for Dual Layer Blu-Rays." Dual Layer Blu-ray discs started shipping in 2006 and can hold up to 50GB.

For comparison's sake, Ratchet and Clank Future was around 22GB, while Metal Gear Solid 4 was too big for the 50GB Blu-ray disc. God of War III is somewhere in the middle.

Disc space can change depending on, say, whether or not the cutscenes are rendered in game or whether or not they are pre-rendered. Because it's not how many GB your game has, but how your game uses them. (And whether or not they can do that figure 8 move with their hips.)

:petrified:Am I missing a disc?... I thought Otacon said it fit all on 1 disc!

I think they had to cut a bit of it out so it would fit on one disc. I remember reading about it before it came out.

They cut out the dual audio on the game to fit it on one disc, originally it was supposed to have both an English dub and the original Japanese audio.

I shall now step out as I have never played God of War and have no intention of doing so in the near future

BLASPHEMY!!! Any reason you have never played it? Its quite possibly one of the most fun games ever. The combat system was so unique that its been replicated by almost every game in its genre since...

Meh, I never got interested in the franchise when it first came out with the original and just never really found a reason to since (I'm generally not into the God of War type game). I've meant to go back and play it but considering my PS2 is on it's deathbed (alas my poor baby, I shall miss it when it goes), I'm broke and can't afford a PS3, and I generally hate buying used games I'll probably never get around to playing it.

And yes, I know I've bought and played Dante's Inferno and it's basically a God of War ripoff (or for that matter a DMC ripoff) it's my first real jaunt into this type of gameplay (and I actually enjoy DI, tis a fun game even if it takes many liberties from the original poem).
