The n64's capactiy was what? 15-35 meg?
PS1 was 700 meg.
Why are you comparing the disc capacity of the N64 and the PS1 when the N64 doesn't use discs?
Because whether it uses discs is irrelavent, the point is how much space the developers could make good games with. And to demonstrate that with a lot more space they were very happy to use more space.
My point in showing each system's maximum was to show how the maximums have developed over the years. Not how discs have developed.

Ok... that's barely understandable. But I think you're wondering why I'd want all that space and suggesting that I'd be using it for mp3's and pictures etc... Computer files I think is what you're suggesting I'd use it for.
Let me just say, that I'd obviously be using my pc for those things. And giving the ps3 the capability to have an elaborate removeable storage system doesn't mean it's going to be used as a hard-drive... that would be stupid... Obviously, like we've been saying, it'd be used by the developers for better game textures, sound effects, just... high quality experience.
Honestly though, it in no way guarantees better games to be made, only good gameplay guarantees that... however games with great gameplay will probably be improved by such quality graphics, like mgs4 or the new final fantasy's.
