MP3 is a mere 30GB on PC, which displays in what some elitists would call 'better than next gen'. Considering most games nowadays are no more than 15gb on average (your two discers and pc anyway, which is as said the guiding stones for next gen sizes) I just can't see many games being full capacity. Some for the stigma of it (is that a thing, having the stigma of it?), the playground boasting oh I filled the bluray with all of my crap game I made compared to the excellent but modest 20gb game that has 2% less fidelity on the sweat of the protagonists ball sack.
Maybe a game will actually fill it with cutscenes, MGS was bloody pushing it for 720p, imagine 1080p with the amount of cutscenes? I'm not sure if it would matter or what, as I think of it the cutscenes are the meat of the size, the game world and textures are very small. I wish they'd put better quality sound in though. Anyway. Skyrim. 3.5gb.
