Since the reveal of the Nintendo Wii U and the fact that it will be able to use discs that can store up to 25GB of data, is it time for Microsoft to step up their game in terms of Xbox 360 disc storage?
Yesterday at Nintendo’s Press Conference at E3 they finally revealed their brand new next-gen console that achieved some pretty amazing and innovative things, however a few hours later it was revealed that the Wii U would be able to read discs that could hold up to 25GB of data on one disc.
As we all know the PS3′s Blue-Ray disc can hold up to 50GB of data and more if they decide to add multiple layers to the disc.
In comparison to the Blu-Ray the Xbox 360 can hold about 8GB of data and with its new update it can hold slightly more (up to 10GB).
So as we can see the PS3 and the Nintendo Wii can hold way more data than the Xbox 360. So many of you might be wondering, so what? well if there is less space then developers will not be able to fit as many textures into the disc with out high compression and also games just wont be that high of quality. Also if you are thinking “so what, games have been good enough on the Xbox such as HALO:Reach .etc” well then would you rather have more space so that developers atleast have the option to work harder and use that space or would you want a developer that has a great game and its great looking but they have to compress it and sacrifice the looks or split the game into discs?
From what we can tell we hope that Microsoft finds a way to ncrease the disc space on their Discs without costing the gamers. If not then hopefully the next gen Xbox 360 will have more space on its discs.
Tell us in the comments what do you think Microsoft has to do?
