Will Uncharted 3 not fit on a single Blu-ray?

Will Uncharted 3 not fit on a single Blu-ray? The PS3's Uncharted 2 was in the news years ago as it barely fit on a 25GB Blu-ray disc but it appears its sequel has taken it a step further.
Naughty Dog's upcoming addition to the blockbuster franchise is so far larger than a 50GB dual-layer Blu-ray disc and could eventually have the distinction of being the first game to require multiple discs.

Says Naughty Dog community manager Arne Meyer:

Uncharted 2 barely made it to 25GB, while Naughty Dog is going over 50GB this time, for Uncharted 3. But in the end we’ll be under 50. We’ll be one disc.


That being said, it is clear the company will have to try some severe compression techniques before launch in November.

Considering that it will be more than 50% cutscenes, shouldn't they just call it a movie?

Playable movie or no, it's still more entertaining than most things being produced for the big screen. As long as it slaps a $60 tag to it, I'll still get it.

If this game is over double the size of Uncharted 2, then that could only mean the single player must be longer, I know the multiplayer is much more expanded, but U3's single player MUST be longer, keep up the good work ND!
