PS3 Games Filling 25GB Blu-Ray discs – with FMVs

Apparently, we’re not as far, graphically, as we should be with our expensive gaming consoles. At least, that’s what Sony President Phil Harrison believes.

“I see nothing wrong with having non-interactive, full HD sequences as part of the game,” he said. “Thats all part of the production value and the experience that you get when you buy the game. I dont see that as a weakness at all.”

Good job justifying Blu-Ray there, Phil.

In an age where video game advertisement practices are questioned due to the overuse of “target” renders rather than actual, in-game content, the President of Sony goes on record admitting that he has no problem with FMVs.

Call me crazy, but last time I checked these consoles were well capable of rendering cinematics with the in-game engine. Since the engines are capable out high-def output, aren’t we to assume that the games don’t really need the videos? What do you think? Should cutscenes be rendered by the in-game engines or with high-def video?

Since I despise FMVs, you already know where I stand…
