Default PlayStation 3 Games Already Filling 25GB Blu-Ray Discs

During an interview with EuroGamer, Sony's worldwide studio boss Phil Harrison justified the use of the much-maligned Blu-Ray technology in the PlayStation 3 by stating that launch titles are already nearing the single-layer 25GB media limit, and titles next year are expected to approach the 50GB mark.

Harrison brought up the game sizes as an argument against those who suggested that the Blu-Ray drive was in the PS3 purely to push Sony's technology for movies. "It's got nothing to do with movies," Harrison responded. "DVD is not sufficient capacity to power the kind of data consumption, or to feed the data consumption needs of Cell and RSX - just purely as a gameplay device, we need Blu-Ray to supply the kind of data that PS3 games use."
