It's 26 GB, so I'm not sure... It might be.

Yes. According to an ND employee.

The download size is 26GB, not the disc size. More than likely, it's a full 50GB Dual layer Blu-Ray, Uncharted 3 was, so this game most definitely is.

Big difference. Uncharted 3 was 50GB disc, but takes 1GB of HDD space, the download size for Uncharted 3, the GOTY at least, is 43.5. Difference in sizes man.

26GB requires a DL disc, since SL discs can hold around 23GB of data.

I can't wait to see how many people will have trouble reading TLOU's DL disc on their old consoles... not to mention the imminent YLOD risk for launch models.

I'm pretty certain (pun intended) that Arne will chime in to save face, just like he did here:

Does this mean the downloaded version has a somehow weaker quality? (I hope not.)

Uhm, Uncharted 3 had 3D cutscenes. TLOU won't be a full DL disc. I don't need to explain why (once again)...
