Mark Rein A Big Fan Of Extra Blu-ray Space

When speaking to GI.biz Epic Games head honcho, Mark Rein, has commented that he enjoys the extra storage space Blu-ray discs offer developers over standard DVDs. The comments were made at the recent Edinburgh Interactive Festival where he expressed concerns that “we may have fewer maps on the 360 version [of Unreal Tournament 3]” and then went on to say that “Blu-ray has definitely given us a lot of legroom”.

He then expanded on his feelings further and said “If you think down the road – well maybe the next UT beyond this one – on Blu-ray we might fill the whole damn disc with all the cool stuff the mod makers make.
