GearNuke: "MLB 14: The Show was already a hefty download on the PS3, weighing in at about 20+ GB. It appers that the PS4 version is almost double the size of the PS3 version, and is now finally up on the official SEN store."
That's huge. Does having a physical copy take up as much space on the HD as having the digital copy?
i think so.
man.. 500GB ain't gonna last, lol
Yeah, I'm holding off as long as I can, so prices can go down and 2TB can become more readily available in 2.5 inch drives. Once they really start getting all the big games broken down like this one or even better, where you need to download less than 2GB to start playing, it won't be that bad even if you don't upgrade from the 500GB internal. You can just delete something you aren't playing much, and if you wanna play it later, it should be a quick download before you can start it up.
@neonrider You didnt know that on both systems, you have to install the whole game of the disc, so no space advantage over the digital download version. @Xtra 2TB 2.5 HDDs have been readily available, what you need to be more readily available is 2TB 2.5 HDDs that are 9.5mm in height as anything bigger will no fit. But yes, the longer you wait the better (cheaper and more readily available)
can't wait to play it
All physical copy of PS4 games are the same install size as their digital counterpart, if I am not mistaken. The disc is just used as a key to play the game but all the data should be install on the HDD the same. In this case, 37.5gb of Data will be installed on the HDD.
If I erase a game's data off my PS4 and then decide to re-buy it later, will I lose my gamesaves or will I just have to reinstall the game data like normal?
Upload the save data for each game to cloud before deleting game. Just in case.
No you will not lose your games save data, as a matter a fact I delete games out my rotation all the time that I am not interested in playing and have redownloaded and everything is still there. If you have a fairly decent internet with no monthly bandwith caps you can delete and reinstall as much as you like to save HD space.
Yeah, only 5 GB needed to start the game. Unfortunately, I get 90% through that on PSN and I keep getting server errors. Happened the last 10 times I tried to download it. Would be 60 70 80% done, sometimes over 90% done and BAM! server error. I've been trying to download it for two hours, since the file went up and the same things been happening every time. It's nothing on my end as everything else works just fine and I have hundred megabit Internet service, so it's not a speed issue. First, the file doesn't show up at 12:01 AM, then it doesn't show up until 3 o'clock in the afternoon, only to have server errors when you try to download it. Sony does a great job with these day one digital downloads. The way it's going, I'll be lucky if I see it on day two or three, by the time they get things straightened out. Definitely worth the day I took off for it. I could only think a vacation in North Korea would be better than the day I spent trying to download this game. :)
I was almost finish with the initial 5GB, and the damn PS4 just randomly disconnects from the internet. I try to resume the download, and it won't even let me. I really want to throw this thing out the window right now.
Wow that was a long install time on par with NBA 2k14 for longest install time.
