The Super Smash Bros. Wii U download size has been revealed. Set aside 15.6 GB worth for storage space and let the digital fighting action soak right in.
that's 10 more gigs left on the disc. They should have filled that with more stuff.
Nintendo has the most amazing compression techniques. For example, MK8 was less than 5 gigs. Chances are the amount of content they've packed into this game would have filled the disc if they had worse compression. Have you seen how much stuff they've shoved into this game?
Yeah no. Compression isn't some space magic, you have to decompress the data as well to load it up into Ram. Nintendo uses compression no different than any other company. By your own logic they could have added far more.
Yeah, they shouldve taken an extra 6 months filling it with stuff so we could complain about the delay
So you rather not have more content on disc at launch? wut.
You realize content takes time to make, right? It's not as simple as "shoot we got 10 gigs left, lets fill 'er up!" What did you say when MK8 was 4.8 gigs? or SM3DW was 2 GB? Im not trying to be defensive, one just has to respect the content and the effort that went into it. There's no denying Smash Wii U is a complete package.
"You realize content takes time to make, right? It's not as simple as "shoot we got 10 gigs left, lets fill 'er up!" " I studied game-tech. I'm well aware of how it works. But this is a Smash game. Since melee It's also intended to be a giant library of information on Nintendo franchises. "What did you say when MK8 was 4.8 gigs? or SM3DW was 2 GB? " Read above. "Im not trying to be defensive, you just have to respect the content an the effort that went into it." Who says I'm not? It really doesn't hurt to want that disc filled up.
What, so you would say a prolonged delay would be worth this 10 gigs of content? Even though they've filled the game with tons of music, characters and trophies, etc? Even though the game is in ready to release form and has the potential to skyrocket sales of a failing console when it needs sales most? If they used a dual layer it would be 50 gigs, might as well fill that up too. We can wait :P /s The way i see it we're getting a timely release of a content-rich game. I would say the same if it was 10 GB. The content's there, i dont care about the number.
I'm not entirely sure why you are being so anal about what I said. Wanting to have something is not going to change what is actually going to happen. All I'm saying is that I'd love them to fill it up with more nintendo stuff. "What, so you would say a prolonged delay would be worth this 10 gigs of content? " Why the f not? We are the consumer, not Nintendo. I don't care about sales, it will sell either way. " If they used a dual layer it would be 50 gigs, might as well fill that up too. We can wait :P /s " But it isn't. I'm speaking about mere 10 gig. They easily could have filled it with special features ( video, high quality concept art, history of the smash series ). It could have been anything. "I would say the same if it was 10 GB. The content's there, i dont care about the number." I really don't get why you'd be pleased with 5 gigs of content stripped. By your logic if the game was 2 gigs you wouldn't mind. It's a smash game, it's an archive of franchises.
Thats pretty big for a Nintendo game!
True. So was Brawl back in the day, clocking in at around 8 gig. I literally can't wait for Smash Wii U.
6.2gb to be exact
Pretty crazy how content rich Nintendo can make 15 gigs worth what with all the music tracks character models etc. Really amazing especially when considering many current games often need day one patches that are nearly this size that just fix problems lol. Nintendo does more with less...
Anyone who is seriously playing on the Wii U has already picked up an inexpensive terabyte drive to plug in.
I've been buying wii u games digitally and still have at least 1800 gb of space left.
