From the footage that their shown, the game barely looks better than current gen, how does it take so much space?

Who needs to compress textures, in-engine videos and other data when both consoles have 50 GB disks? That'd be a waste of time especially when you're in crunch time. It also discourages piracy.

Did people seriously not expect this?

With both systems utilizing there is no reason to compress anything.

All those claiming games wouldn't be much bigger than the 360 games of today, are wrong.

All big games will be 40GB+.

preorder cancelled.

Seriously I am no longer interested in CoD since Modern Warfare 1 was the last good one.

How long are these installs going to take?

As it stands now, doesn't take about 40 minutes to get a 6 GB install on current gen?

This time around installs are gonna be done in the background so you don't have to worry about wasting time installing the game.

You can play after the install reaches 5GB.

And if it's taking 40 minutes for a 6GB install on your PS3, something is wrong with your hard drive.
