PGR4 hitting dvds limits and PS3 fanboys

I was on a gaming site just now looking at the issues PGR4 is hitting with DVD constraints. Basically the game developer is making prerendered textures for everything. The issue is that having 3 or 4 sets of texture for each track gets to be a huge task to find space for. IMO a better way could be found to get a similar effect. Anyways, As I was looking at the comments I couldn't help the fact that a lot of PS3 fan boys don't understand why the Xbox 360 never used a HD-DVD drive in the system. It just wasn't ready for prime time during testing and Microsoft wanted a year head start over Sony. These people don't understand it was a valid move and is why their Sony is in 3rd. Yes, DVDs are getting small but I rather have games on DVD then nothing on Blu-Ray. Really I think the PS3 people are looking for any reason to validate their purchase. I know I'am...
