PS3 Oblivion to feature double the data?

Apparently all that extra space on a Blu-ray disc really is useful after all. Take Oblivion for instance: Developer Bethesda finds that filling the unused gigs with redundant data helps with seek times as the Blu-ray drive is slower than the DVD drive in the 360. If you have the same data on the disc multiple times, the system doesn't need to scour the disc as much to find it.

It's good to see developers are really taking advantage of the PS3's Blu-ray drive, even if it is only to make up for it's shortcomings.
