In the US, a number of customers have been receiving their Xbox One's early from retailer Target. Those users have been posting the install sizes for Xbox One games online
Bah, where's that cloud when you need it? I thought it would just do that for us! /s
imaginaaaation, imaginaation, in imaginaaaaaaation :)
Looks like a lot of games will have big ass installs for both systems But as long as it helps games play better I could care less
Not just the games playing better. It will be less wear on the hardware.
Which fool disagreed to less wear on the hardware? Much rather have a constant spin rate for the HDD than ever changing Blu-ray drive.
couldnt care less*
i hope they'll have the external drive support in early 2014 so... and by early i mean january 2014
I could be wrong about this, but I'm pretty sure that the Xbox One does support external hard drives. It just doesn't support internal hard drives.
they've said it won't be around for launch but it's planned to be implemented... unless that's changed since i last read it
Thanks for the information Jack. I appreciate it.
Im sure microsoft will make an external HDD and overcharge you for it like with everything else they do.
Zumba: World Party - 24GB what? Im sure there is no need for it to be this big? I wonder how many devs have been lazy with there packing now they have a lot of space to use. Well ill be using £42.4GB of spaces with the games I have pre ordered so lots of space left after.
I wouldn't really call it lazy. Uncompressed data is always better than compressed. You only need compression when your transferring data across a limited medium.
Its a Zumba game nothing that's going to set the world alight. Look at the size of Mario World 3D on the Wiiu for an example of how to deliver amazing graphics and put it into a small space.
Tons of hours of 1080p video? Yeah dude that's gonna fill a LOT of space. A 2 hr BluRay is usually filled about 18gb. And from what I understand the game has probably over 10+ hours of video.
Guys you need to expect this from a technical aspect. The BluRay Drives are not capable of streaming the high res textures fast enough, so the consoles need to store the data on the internal hard drive. Expect this and more to happen over the years. For PS4 I suggest investing in a bigger HDD at launch and for Xbox One, once they do allow the use of external USB drives, get a nice 2TB drive and use it, cause you're gonna need it. I already have a 1.5tb drive waiting to be installed in my PS4 because of this.
I'm going on Tiger Direct & Amazon to shop prices for the HDD's for the X1 & PS4. Going 2TB for both.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/pr... I doubt you will find a better deal :D hope this helps, I've done lots of searching as well.
I don't want to sound dumb, but what's the benefit from downloading the game to your hard drive? I know if you install the game you can access it from a friends house, but besides that not sure the point. Does it load quicker or do anything better than an actual disc?
Faster loading times essentially.
Faster loading and streaming of higher definition textures from the much faster hard driver over the blu ray disc.
This is not good for xbox, remember you can't remove hdd on xb1.
External storage. No re-downloading games
When does the external storage go live for Xbone? I remember reading that it won't be available at launch.
Wow they take up alot of gigs but the thing that baffles me about these disk size is how is it that NBA 2K14 take up 43gb but NBA live 14 only takes up 9gb. What is that game lacking that it's only 9gb?
NGA 2K14 seems to be using some really high end textures. I'd imagine that's responsible for some bloat.
i find it hilarious out COD: Ghosts install size is actually bigger than Battlefield 4s. Considering the epic scale of Battlefield in comparison to Ghosts, it doesnt make much sense.
Exactly what i was thinking, ridiculous.
