This thread is total BS, obviously the game is 50 GB, its been published as such. Why is it that only one little thread on the internet "found out the truth"? Its total BS, this would be published as news articles on different sites if it was true.

It's true, the near perfect MGS4 uses a mere 33GB, meaning a spare 17GB for EVEN BETTER GAMES in the next5 or so years left for the PS3...
The sad fact is, XBotch360 is old news...

Sorry for any misspellings guys, I am typing blind here, my monitor went out earlier today.

I didn't really feel that I was coming up with some totally off the wall theory, just estimating some trends related to game sizes over the past 10 years.
But, whateva, do what you want.

This Pretty Much Settles It
According to the Phileweb interview with the sound engineer, compressed sound data occupies 1/4 of the entire disc. Realtime sound in MGS4 amounts to 128ch including on-memory 3D sound + 38ch multistreaming sound.
As for the disc size, according to Pocket News, the ISO file of the Japanese version of MGS4 is 46.6GB. But when it's loaded on a Lite-on BD drive DH-4O1S in Windows, the game data is 29.9GB (MGS4 = 27.2GB, MGO = 2.7GB). So I guess there are padding sectors for faster loading. It has a PS3 firmware updater too (200MB). The required PS3 firmware is 2.20. The bonus "making of" disc is 22.7GB ISO with AACS V7.

"Personally, I think some developers are doing that to PS3 games on purpose to show support for MS easier development environment. 3rd party developers can't be THAT stupid to just be close to parity in games versus the over the top visuals the 1st and 2nd party PS3 games are providing (up to 1080/60fps)."
