It's been confirmed that GTA V on the Playstation 4 needs a chunky 44.9GB of free hard drive space.
Sheesh, GTA makes sense but not something like nba 2k14...
I just glad I slipped a 1tb hybrid in at the start. Phew
At this rate even 1tb wont be enough. I have 2 TB as gaming drive on my PC. I am thinking of getting something larger. An upgrade to 4-5TB hard drive is in order now.
I also have 1tb and it's more than enough. By the time you fill it up with games you could go back and remove some of the older ones. GTA5 is huge but average is 20gb. You would have almost 40 games on your HDD to fill up the 1TB. Although that is for installs not full game downloads. I prefer physical copy anyway.
Damn spending money for hard drive space for consoles sound stupid. Ain't the point of consoles is to simply plug and play not to buy expensive attachments just to get the most out of them. Now I have to buy HDD, USB to even listen to music, online sub just to play the other half of a game they didn't even make when I already paid for it. Gotta love the nickel and diming topped with contradictions. What's the point of bluray again. It sounds like the whole game. All I hear is how they are going to buy more stuff for their consoles so it can be more convenient. Sounds like y'all made of money. Funny thing I think I know who consoles are convenient for. A hint: its not the customers. But hey I got like 5tb on pc... Wait. PC lol
You really don't see how you sound like a hypocrite do you haha. So your PC came with 5TB from Factory? No. You either selected it when building or upgraded it later. So you are no different than console gamers who upgrade their drives.
point of blu ray is to store more data. usb to listen to music is stupid but everyone owns one buying hdd is not neccesary, just for people who want to hdd or usb is not nickel and diming when the domoany doesnt make any money from that. online sub for other half of game? care to explain. so when you building a pc, is buying a cooler nickel and diming? how bout buying an extra hdd? or buying that extra graphics card. why the hell did i waste time replying to a troll
Its all those sweaty balls.
so true, luckily installing and uninstalling is quite fast on ps4
Totally worth it dude!!!
My SSD is Ready!
So my HDD :p
Geesh all these 50GB+ games are going to rip a hole into my new 500gb external. I'm already at 89% capacity on the internal drive.
Well you could always delete some older games that you aren't playing right now unless you get most of your games digitally and don't want to redownload them. So far that works out for me. I'll wait until I can have a meaningful upgrade (at least 4TB) so that it lasts for the rest of the generation.
I got a 1.5TB HDD but it's filling up fast, only 689gb left. Might get a 2TB HDD and start all over. Hopefully they start releasing 3TB 2.5in HDDs soon.
Good gawd man!! Good gawd!!
Fine by me!
Funny how so many people were complaining about mandatory installs for some games last gen, but now no one is bothered by mandatory installs for EVERY game.
Well, they are hardly noticeable on the PS4. In the game in a matter of minutes. I am also understanding of modern game design and it requires massive amounts of space for high res textures.
That's so weird, it says 41.8 on the PS Store
Does it not need a little more to install it
The games install so fast, I don't have a problem deleting them all the time and reinstalling them later.
I second that
Sheesh a man might have to replace that HDD faster than he thought. It's usually less for the disc version compared to downloaded version though.
Thats why I put a 1TB hybrid in day 1. Starting to pay off now. OT: Noticed something pretty neat the other day. If you dont touch a game for a while the PS4 stops updating it until you try and use it again. Thought it was odd that Blacklight had not seen an update in forever so booted it up and ping! gigs of updates.
Yeah, that's why I replaced my HDD with a 1.5 TB HDD. Shouldn't be a problem.
Not really that unusual, it was already close to 20GB on PS3 and tons of other games on PS4 are in the 40GB-50GB range like Killzone. I put a 1TB 7200RPM hard drive in my PS4 when I got it so I'm not worried about storage.
This is why I love my physical media.
You still have to install to hardrive. Where have you been?
Yeah but you can just delete a game when your done playing it, then install it back when u want to play and in ps4 case install don't take more than 2 min if you go digital you have to delete the whole game and download t again
Why do you love it, exactly?
Basically it takes less time to install it than to download the game. That's why I have no problems uninstalling big games from my PS4 of they are retail copies. P.S Basically what Kimosabi said. There are many advantages over digital.
Digital is clearly the future, but not with these 500G consoles getting in the way.
well then it's a good thing one can: a) swap the HDD out of the PS4. and b) plug in an insanely large external HDD into the xbone.
i prefer physical media too. perhaps we are just old school.
I got thumbed down for being old school :(
Well I think I'm going to get A 2 TB hdd
2 days ago i download gta 5 ps3 at 18 GB took me 2H41M to do so ^-^ so i can only imagine how long 44.9 Gb would take to download Unless the ps4 makes downloads faster? i don't know i don't own a ps4 ...... Yet -__
Ps3 is slower.
goodness!!! devs arent even trying to compress these games anymore... Gonna need a 10TB HDD for PS4 at this rate
no need to know both consoles have large capacity discs. i do find though that a lot of that data is often duplicate videos in different languages, well on pc atleast.
i dont play PC games unfortunately because multiplats usually smoke the console versions but i love home consoles & my PS4 is adequate enough to enjoy them..I dont own XB1 either so just PS4 & Wii U for current gen game will have to do it.. I want xb1 eventually after another SMALLER console design & possibly another price drop.. I actually only want 2 games for it.. Killer Instinct & Rise of the Tomb Raider but its cool. I cant wait since i have very little time to play working these long hours & only having 2 days/wk to play.. My handheld titles as well as my home systems have more than enough to keep me busy during my free time... Them large installs will eventually require more storage space so thankfully PS4 can be upgraded.. Wii U will have to have the damn external HDD dongle after a while...
