I hope they don't screw up on this, 'cause no loading times are fun, but with detailed 3d games like this, it'll be really easy to run out of space... I mean, Peace Walker on the PSP has comic cutscenes mostly because of space issues, and it's on a UMD...

That's the only thing that bothers me.

2 GB cartridges (at launch), that's more than UMD's. What was a UMD max, about 1.8 GB right?

They will probably add double-size carts in te future, resulting in 4GB file size. That's almost the size of a regular PC game.

Yeah, but aren't big-sized cartridges way more expansive?

I mean,

I KNOW the games won't be on SD cards, but that's as close as a game cartridge that you can actually check out the price. You gotta admit, it's really expansive, compared to DVDs.

Yes, it is very expansive, that's why they're using them. Expansion is a good thing.
Unyu! Unya!

SD cards are Flash not ROM.
Game cartridges use ROM.
ROM cheaper than flash, much cheaper
