What the heck, from screenshots the graphics don't even look that outstanding. It is just another movie heavy Kojima game?

Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.

Yeah the cutscenes are hardly compressed. I think the movie folder is the vast majority... I'll check.

Yessir movie folder is 20GB while the rest of the game is only the remaining 3-4

Perks of being a PS3 game. There was plenty of space on blu-ray to not bother compressing

Wasting resources for the sake of just because.

Really, on PS3 there is no reason.

On PC (or even console digital distribution) they should have movies as free DLC and let you choose the quality. Kind of like how Sleeping Dogs and Skyrim has high-res textures as free dlc. saves people space from those who couldnt use them

No, there are actual benefits on the PS3 performance wise to go with less compression and absolutely no downsides because the disc doesn't care if it's almost empty or almost full. And since the assets already exist for that version it'd be a waste of resources to redo them just for the PC version.
