Um...there have been multiple current sources that have been rather debunking the rumor.

It shouldn't be more than 4-5 tops. They might be able to compress it down to 3. I would think the main problem would be the amount of HD CGI movies that take up a lot of that room on the BluRay.

I haven't played MGS4 so I don't know if there are CGI movies elsewhere, but the game event videos are real time.

He is referring to those weird HD commercials for things in the MGS universe.

I know the cut scenes are in engine, but I assumed you're still watching a movie file.

^This. They look so much nicer than DVD quality so they'd definitely take up a ton of space. But all of the sound can be compressed and the textures aren't anything special really, so no worry about that.And btw, almost all 360 games use a sound compression method that keeps the quality of the sound while storing up to 5x the data in the same amount of space it normally would. There was an article Kotaku linked to a few days ago about it, interesting stuff.

Aha, that formatting does sound familiar, it was even what was used with the Dreamcast GD-ROM's in the fashion. Plus some research can also be found here: http://www.segatech.com/technical/consolecompare/index.html

People really underestimate what compression can do. Of course it depends on how much crappier they're willing to make the 360 version than the original, but as a sheer matter of getting the game out and running on it, it's a very minor obstacle. Pirates were able to take many full size Dreamcast games and cram them into CD size after all..
