I used my uni email to register, so no problems there.
And the dude claims to work for Sony, so asking him about MS disc policy would be kind of pointless, he wouldn't be able to say much about that I'm assuming.

Thread: PS3 Rumors
Yeah I guess so...but it wouldn't hurt to try
Okay you got it dude, I asked him for you. No idea when he might reply though.
Thanks. You don't have to post his response here (unless everyone here wants to see) for me, I'll just keep hitting F5
Nice question you asked though. It's a good idea to make sure this guy isn't some 13 year old waiting to laugh his ass off when we all get disappointed.
Well thats what I figure, I'm sure just saying what department he works for can't possibly violate an ND, or saying if hes a beta tester or a programmer or whatever the case might be, surely you're allowed to tell someone your job description.
i have a good feeling about this guy...im interested to hear what he has to say about the multi-disc thing, i dont expect much seeing as how he works for sony but oh wellIt is what it is
Does anyone know where I can find those tv spots for the Ps3
like "I heard it has like crazy graphics" stuff"Those who beat their swords into plowshares will end up plowing for those who did not."

I read Scrivener's respose. I guess using only one disc isn't not so much a policy as an unwritten rule.

That is possibly why there has been no mention of downloadable content for the PS3 version. They don't need it because they can fit everything they need on the Blu-Ray disc.
As for the guy in question, I am starting to open up a little, but I'm still very skeptical.I'm tired of the Killzone 2 hate. Attacking the game and calling it mediocre because it doesn't do anything different is absolutely ridiculous, because games like Call of Duty 4, Halo 3, Gears of War and many others are given free passes to high scores and critical praise from everyone despite the FACT that they do nothing different either. Killzone 2 should not be thrown to the curb.
Well there you go, theres this answer to that, makes sense.
It's not just a MS policy, actually. It's the reason multidisc games have basically been nonexistant since PSOne*. There's a number of reasons. From a technical standpoint, it's difficult to split a game onto multiple discs unless it's very linear. It also requires special packaging (usually stacked or snap-in flap). The packaging isn't so much the problem as swapping discs is incredibly annoying for consumers and creates all kinds quality assurance nightmares... especially with todays large nonlinear games. Hence, MS and Sony generally require that the title fit on a single disc. There are exceptions, but they are very few and far between. *Nintendo had a similar rule for N64 - but not for GC. In that case it made sense, since GC discs have a lower capacity than normal DVDs and are cheap to produce. You'll also notice that the GC games with multiple discs are fairly linear with clearly defined "break points" that require minimal disc swapping.
Yea i can see that, as a consumer disc swapping would be annoying as hell..i mean who wants to get off their lazy ass to change a disc? Just kidding im not that lazy but it makes sense that it requires alot of work to make it linearIt is what it is
I doubt the scrivn guy is going to tell who he is and what department he works for...plus isnt it much more fun to hear the rumor and speculate whether its real or not?It is what it is
Well I gotta say, the mans credibility is growing on me; they all seem very protective of him over there like he has built up a reputation for being reliable.
Yea i have read that over the last 18 pages there...I'm gonna go out on a limb and believe himIt is what it is
I was going to ask about GTA and if he knew anything about how R* would take advantage of both systems. But I guess you can't have a free email. >___<
Oh well. He's being bombarded with questions anyway.
Hopefully he'll be posting updates all through the convention. I wish someone somewhere was doing a live feed of the event like the press conferences at E3.
haha yayou can tell those guys are really backing him with what Tiny Tim said...lolIt is what it is
A live feed would be cool, but bandwidth costs from Germany are probably crazy.
Oh well, hopefully I'll wake up to a boardful of PS3 mayhem like I did today.Now writing: two Ratchet & Clank novels, a Sly 4 novel, and two rock albums

I noticed you posted the following at that site:
yeah I read through the whole thread, as well as reading back a few pages in the archive of his posts. And well yeah he seems to have been around a fair while thats for sure.
08-23-2006 #124How did you check his archives? Did you click his name and then click "Find all posts by Scrivener"? 'cause when I try that it says I can't (even though it had allowed me to post).
After reading 18pages over there I'm going to believe him too.
