microsoft: 4.7GB is enough

Microsoft says it will not use the HD DVD add on for games

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 comes with a DVD drive. As an add on there will be a HD DVD drive. This will only be used for movies, not for game content.

Microsoft says that the 4.7GB that a standard DVD offers is enough for games. HD DVD would be 15GB.

More is better. Up to a point. Any Sony-Fanboy will be eager to point out that this Microsoft move is simply sour grapes. After all, will Bluray not feature huge amounts of data. Correct. However, all games I did see on the PS3 dev units looked nice. But none of them showed an amount of detail and scene fariation that would not fit on a 4.7GB disk.
