Rayman on Xbox One is somehow dramatically smaller than PS4, Wii U and last-gen

It isn't clear at the moment but it appears that somehow Rayman Legends on Xbox One is significantly smaller in size (gigabytes) than all other versions. This is especially weird since its supposed to feature uncompressed textures. (PC, PS3, PS4, Rayman Legends, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

If that was the case the 360 version will be equally smaller

lol The disagrees can't handle the fact that XO can output the same as PS4 at 1/2 the install size. XD

When you have a 500gb hard drive that is full at 360 gbs, you have to make up for that deficiency somewhere.

Does seem a bit bizarre, but I guess as long as it doesn't affect quality or load times, doesn't really matter.

Digital Foundry did a thing on it and they didn't really spot any differences.

What? I don't understand why a console you pay 500 dollars on falls back on a game that isn't graphically challenging to run.

Dunno, but I don't see how it matters.

Because it's an amazing game and numbers of polygons don't equate to a better game.

I never said they did.Would I own a Wii U if I believed in that ridiculous philosophy?

Very pretty game.

Took advantage of tiled resources.

Definitely curious, but considering that you can't upgrade the Xbox One's hard drive, it's not like it's unwelcome.

Well maybe the packaged game is better compressed.
Like when uncompressed music as WAVs compress better than MP3s(since it's already compressed).

Ps4 and wii u have to support more regions/languages at the moment. X1 not out in as many countries. Simple as that.
TheRedButterfly  +   648d ago
If you think that language files equate to 4.7gbs worth of data, I've got some bad news for you...

I bought this yesterday for $59.99 only to find out that it is selling for $39.99 today. Luckily Microsoft is awesome and refunded me the full amount so that I can buy it at the lower price.
I had noticed the price on my PS4 as well as the download size which was 8.3GB. Then when I checked the Xbox store I saw it was the same price and immediately contacted MS support.

The game is awesome. The art style is wonderful. I didn't play this on last gen and so I thought it was time I picked it up on my XB1 as I have two XB1s so I can take advantage of Home Gold.
