In an interview with ThreeSpeech, Killzone 2 producer Steven Ter Heife said that the game wouldn’t be possible without the advantages afforded by Blu-ray.

“I think a lot of the tricks we’re doing are down to the hardware – all the post-processing effects. There are a huge number of SPUs in there so we can just offload a lot of things. All the physics is handled by the SPUs, all the post-processing… we can really push the SPUs so we have a lot of processing power to make the image look the way it looks,” said Ter Heife when asked how the team was getting along with the hardware.

“We’ve mentioned this before, but you really need Blu-ray to pull off this kind of thing, because of the sheer amount of data we’re chewing through to create these levels. The one you just played through is 2.5Gb worth of data.”
