God of War III Takes Up 35 GB of Space

Sony Santa Monica developer Tim Moss announced via Twitter that God of War III will require over 35 GB of space on Blu-ray when it releases in March. The announcement relays the enormous size of the game and suggests that the art design should be second-to-none.

A Blu-ray Disc can hold 20 to 50 GB of data and a dual-layer Blu-ray Disc can contain 50 to 100 GB of information. Moss’ tweet suggests that the game will ship on a dual-layer disc, saying, “35Gb of goodness. Thank heavens for Dual Layer Blu-Rays.”

In comparison, a DVD can hold up to 8.5 GB of information.

In addition, Moss also revealed that the European edition of the game will probably require 40 GB of data due to extra language files.

God of War III is scheduled for release on March 16 in North America. It has been developed by Sony Santa Monica and will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment America. It will be available on the PlayStation 3.
