No all 360 discs are Dual Layer so they fit ~9.2GB but the new disc that they are using can hold I believe close to ~10 or 11GB.


They're still single-side DVD-9 discs, so the maximum theoretical size is 7.95GB; the 360 discs also have some sort of copy protection/update sector so a bit of that space is automatically compromised. The maximum size of actual game data on the previous discs was 6.8GB; even with the newer type I've never seen one larger than 7.7GB.

EDIT: The largest single disc-size currently appears to be Dragon's Dogma, which is 7.9GB.

There is no Single Layer DVD-9, all are Dual Layer. Only DVD-5 are Single Layer, hence why you see a lot of RPGs on Wii on DVD-9 because a complete disc rip is close to 8.5GB do most Wii RPGs.

The 360 uses the same DVD-9 that companies use for the Wii just woth added security. If you don't believe me find a complete disc rip NFO online or do a rip yourself and you will see most 360 games are close to 8GB minimum on disc.

I said single-side, not single-layer, and I'm talking about real GBs, not billions of bytes. The maximum theoretical size of a DVD-9 is 8,547,991,552 bytes, which is 7.961 GB. I've installed many 360 discs and like I said, I've never seen one larger than 7.7GB (as mentioned though, Dragon's Dogma is 7.9GB). See the reference list here:

Take note that the only real plus for pre-orering is the mechromancer class and it will be released mid October for $10. For those thinking of ordering from the UK PSN remember only two members will have access to the class as it won't release with the game. Also, even though the game downloads to your system before release it does not release until Friday. Remember that all future content will have to be from the UK PSN as well and I'm sure the season pass will be more expensive than in the US as with most PSN items (mechromancer is releasing on UK PSN for 8 pounds or around $12.50)


Ah, thanks for the info, not getting it from the UK store then if the release date is the 21st there..

Also: Looking for a phantom or resell share in any borderlands 2 us group.

Separate DLC is not pre it is post. If you download the RDR main game and Undead Nightmare Full game the it is all pre.

The separate DLC was not added till after the decrease.

I had the same issue with a share from momouchi. I thought about asking for a refund but really the share works it just doesnt update to zen 2. Does anyone have any info on how we can get access to 1 of the 2 slots to get the new stuff from the store?

One of the 2 ps3s that have activated the new content would have to be deactivated.

Apparently the demo said that the game would be available on the PSN on the 18th, however I haven't found any confirmation online or anywhere else. I think it comes on the PSN on the 25th just like on every other platform, I mean why would we get it a week early, It doesn't make sense.

I know this probably deserves a different thread but now that i am starting to get more and more games I need to upgrade my 80gb of ps3 hard drive to handle all the game shares.

Can one of you just recommend the drive you use? I want to just buy one quick and get it over with. Thanks

Sorry, i wasnt saying you were in the wrong. In my case I dont think a refund was needed since I can play the content I just cant play it in zen 2. I understand your situation especially since undead nightmare is the best part of that game.
