    A 360 could run it, however the game would have to be on multiple DVD's. Microsoft should just do what the rest of the world is doing and start supporting blue-ray.

    *The game looks absolutely stunning! Man, I love streaming HD!!!

    Every ps3 game is on Bly ray.

    This is the beauty of Bly ray, enourmous space capacity.

    Hideo asked Sony to make him a quad layer Bly ray disc for Mgs4 because the game is so large.

    The game is around 100gb from what I've read.

    I wouldn't say that, about half of the ps3 games load to your HDD.

    The problem is when you got lazt developers who port DVD 9 games to blu-ray.

    Think of it like this, if DVD9 games are like finding a needle in a hay stack(the needle being data), then blu ray games are like finding a needle in a 3x larger hay stack.

    Now you can see why lazy developers who just port games straight from xbox to ps3 are horrid and cause bad load times.

    You mean 9 layer dvds correct? I have heard the file system is complex and lowers read times.
