If you have the disc version of Destiny, or have completed its preload, you’re gonna have some more downloading to do, as Bungie released a day one (actually, day minus-two) patch that updates the game to version 1.02.
The patch isn't that big compared to some that have been on the Xbone. I don't think I could put up with the size of some of those to be honest. This isn't much of a problem. @Abriael. When they are massive like the ones on the Xbone. Wasn't the Sniper patch 10GB or something? Ridiculous
I've always wondered when day one patches have ever become "a problem."
300mb? That is not much weight. :P
Am I crazy or does my screen say 20GB download on PS4 for the whole game while an article recently said the XB1 version was 40GB? Not trying to start anything, just an observation.
@Scotty Both systems need double the storage space in order to install a game. So a game that weighs 20GB needs 40GB of space to install.
@King Yep, you have to download the game first. And once it's downloaded you need an additional 20 GB of space to install it as well. It's the same on the PS3. The games don't simultaneously download and install at the same time.
@Scotty 17-18GB was the initial download size. Some textures and audio may get uncompressed during install ballooning the size up to 20GB. On a side note about the patch, I already have it downloaded and installed. If you purchased the Day-1 digital versions it also downloads the Day-1 patch. The "Season Pass/Expansion Pass" and Vanguard content also get downloaded.
I just downloaded and installed destiny with 23gb remaining on my ps4 just enough for the 21gb (i have digital) and it didnt say i needed more space or not even close to "double" the space. Ive never ran into this double space problem yet and my ps4 HDD is constantly jammed. Edit: interesting thought is i downloaded destiny in standby so maybe that changes things? Still though i have yet to run into what you guys are describing, although i have on ps3.
What was the point of bringing the X1 up?
PARITY CONTENT UPDATE 1.02 DO NOT UPDATE YOUR GAME! IT WILL DOWNGRADE YOUR PS$ VERSION TO .... /s but seriously, wonder why the PS4 owners have to "update" their game and the xb1 owner not? /shrug
Im thinking its the exclusive content that they do not get.
@Azmatik that DLC releases Day 1?
The real download is gonna be inside the game like the beta.
Yep. That's where my other twenty gigs is waiting. I wish I could download the rest of it ahead of time, but it's not a big deal. My friend works that day and I am off. So I'll have plenty of time to do it.
My version already says 1.02. An update file downloaded with the actual game on my ps4.
My body (and hard drive) is ready Bungie.
Wow. That's a not a bad patch.
This patch enhance HUD. Saw it in an interview of a bungie guy.
Thanks for the heads up. Anyway, it is strange that the unreleased game is already on version 1.02. Says a lot about the state games are released today, but, on the other hand, about the support and attention it is receiving and how corrections are done easily these times... If it was 2004, the testing prior to release would be tighter, but we would have to deal with the remaining bugs permanently.
Not really.. 1.0 is what shipped to manufacturing ie all game disks.. Development continues well past that point
You don't say...
A game of this scope in popularity was probably in manufacturing about a month ago. 30 days is a lot of time for polishing.
So pretty much wont be playing till like 2 or 3 lol
300 MB!? on my internet thats like 1 hour or 2.....
Let me guess, AT&T dsl? Those guys are some serious rip-off artists. Try some cable internet, that 300mb will be downloaded before you can get a soda.
Change your DNS to Google DNS or Open DNS. It will make a big difference on the PSN. Changed a family members the other day. Tested speed before changing and it was 3 Mbps down 1 Mbps up. After changing it jumped up to 10 Mbps down 2 Mbps up. I'm paying for 20 Mbps and get least 30 on my PC. Should speed you up a little no matter what speed your paying for.
There is something seriously wrong with your internet then.
my preload for ps4 downloaded the patch at the same time. i didn't even notice it.
Anyone worried about this game? I played the BETA and I wasn't that impressed with i. It was a solid shooter but that was it really.
I am, but then Target dropped a deal to get $20 each for NBA 2K14 and AC4, plus a 20% discount and get a $5 gift card for preordering. So, for less than $10 I am onboard.
Will probably take a couple years to finish this on PS4.. PSN will make sure of that.. good luck :)
I get you're trolling but I played the Beta on PSN and had no problems whatsoever. You need to grow up and stop living in the past, PSN is a great network, does it have issue from time to time sure, as all networks do, no network is immune to issues even XBL.
@mattz Nice trollin but no, took me less then an hour to download on psn for my ps4.
I really want to finish or just get closer to finishing The Last of Us now that I'm into it before I go get my preorder. But then I don't want to rush thru a great game.
WOW " Weighs Almost 300 MB on PS4" woa, let's all scream and run away, omg 300 MG is unacceptable...
gasp! thats going to be 5-10 min of my life!!
if you have it perloaded already from psn the patch is already applied. you can tell by going to the game and hitting options then information and it lists the version as 1.02
I'm fine with anything under a gig.
