NSMB2 a game that relatively cheap to make compared to console games 39.99
now Halo4, AC3 and ms other xbox premorders are generally in the range of 59. for games that cost probably up to 100 times more to make, that makes them eithr veyr cheap or the 3ds game very expensive.
and looking at the full pre order listfor the 3DS there's a some even up to 54 O_O
PS3 and 360 almost ALL retail for $59.99 (even crappy movie games: http://www.gamestop....attleship/98957
). And that's still a $20 difference, which is a LOT.
MGS4 is actually 36GB, he was just trying to impress fans. As for Blu-Ray in gaming? I think it's a must for Xbox. Sharp have managed to produce a Blu-Ray player than can read a 100GB Blu-Ray disk. Now that would be pretty future proof, of course Gaming companies could still have choices between a 25GB, 50GB or 100GB disk.
Good point. I still feel, however, that a solid state media would have many obvious benefits over a disk even if its not sheer storage space. As I said, read speed is faster which makes for better load times, less prone to failure and allow for slimmer platforms. It also prevents MS from having to license Blu-Ray from Sony. I just enjoy the idea of being able to come back to my Xbox 720 in 10 years later and knowing all my games, if I have any of them still, will still work. Currently if I pulled out my old Xbox games and tried to play them I doubt half of them would be in a condition to be played merely from sitting in boxes that have moved many times. That is the nature of disc media.
