your thoughts on up-coming games dvd9 or not
your thoughts on up-coming games dvd9 or not –
need for speed underground 2 - probly not
metal gear solid 3 - possibly
prince of persia 2 - dont think so
007 rogue agent - no
gran tursimo 4 - yes
im just guessing, anyone confirm any of these
Gran Turismo 4 is definitely double layer, it's been annonced officially this week.
That doesn't mean anything GTA:SA was annonced that it was going to be on a DVD9 but when it was released it was DVD5

4.7 + 4.7=9.4

Correct if the binary system where 1024 bytes = one kilobyte is used but marketing ploys are used such as the decimal 10 system of 1000 bytes = one kilobyte.

The same is done for hard drives, 200GB (using the base 10 formula) HDs are actually 189GB in binary and 120GB HDs are 111GB in binary.
Now, a Dual Layer DVD is marketed as having 8,5GB capacity (not even 9.4GB as you seem to state accord 4 me) but in binary is actually around 8GB due to the 8.5GB being false since its counted in decimal and also the second layer of a Dual Layer DVD holds LESS information than the first layer since the pits/grooves are larger on the second layer so the data on the second layer is easier to read.
Hope this clears things up.
Then they made a mistake or Kazunori Yamauchi has no clue what he's saying... Because as Vegeta said a DVD9 only holds 8.5gigs so there is no WAY GT:4 is 9+gigs unless there are 2 discs! Don't beleave me or Vegeta about the size look HERE or if u beleave that site is wrong search google it's known everywhere that DVD9 is 8.5gigs
