Hi,

I was reading some articles about the rumored specs of the PS3 and XBox2. Generally the rumors point to raw processing power being the preferred appraoch apposed to increasing storage capacity through Physical Ram and Hardrives. If Ram and Hardrives aren't going to be utilized as much for game consoles how on earth are games going to be able to utilize all that Processing power with one 4GB DVD per game? Assuming the games are going to have more cinematics and are going to be twice as large, are we going to have go back to multiple disc changing again like many people did with the PS one? Maybe I'm just not aware of the DVD tech out there. Isn't there a new type of video disk coming to the market soon?

20GB would definately be a larger game.

Thanks for the info:)
