    Most of the games/isos I've encountered have usually been below 1gb. Is this because developers have yet to utilize the other (approx.) 800 mb? You'd think that they'd want to use that space. Anyway, whats the biggest game out right now?
    Also, I only have a 1gb Memstick at the moment, and even though you can compress your isos, do you think a 2 gb will be mandatory for many future game releases?
    Any thoughts on this situation ?

    It always takes a while for developers to begin to maximize the potential of gaming systems. As new techniques are developed for the graphics and new methods of utilizing the software there will be more being put on the disk. Take a look at a really old PS2 game and a new one, you will see the difference.


    No shit! There I was, inadvertent IMC and inverted... with a slingload. How did I know i was inverted? My air medals were dangling in my face and all my instruments were redline, except my clock, and time was running low...

    So far UMDs have a max capacity of 1.8gb, so you will never need larger than a 2gb.

    The UMD is dying anyway.
    Retailers are starting to not accept any movie or music UMD anymore because no one is buying them.
    Next is game UMD.

    I wanna get some of those fake MS's you can get. They're cheaper cause they're fake but they still work like the expensive ones so to me theres not much of a difference 2 matter. I heard they arent glued together too good tho and can split apart if you mess w/ them but I'd just geta 2 or 4gig and keep it in there lol
