Mark Rein backs Blu-ray

Epic boss likes "legroom".

Epic Games boss Mark Rein has expressed his appreciation for the extra storage space Blu-ray discs offer over standard DVDs, GamesIndustry.biz is reporting.

He was speaking about upcoming PS3 and Xbox 360 shooter Unreal Tournament 3 at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival, and warned that "we may have fewer maps on the 360 version ... Blu-ray has definitely given us a lot of legroom".

He went on to add: "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."

Unreal Tournament 3 will be console exclusive to PS3 this year, with the 360 version to follow in 2008. Sony's system will also let you play using a keyboard and mouse.

Epic's other big game to date was the 360-exclusive Gears of War, which sold bucket loads and was really rather a lot of fun.
