The Order 1886 file size has been revealed with an update to its listing on the Sony Entertainment Store.
Not bad at all.
I think one thing can be said by everyone, 500GB HDD's were not even close to ideal for this generation. Base models should have started at 2TB and increased over the generation. I just store apps on my Xbox internal hard drive. I got a 2TB external for storing my game catalog and a 256GB SSD external for the handful of games I'm rotating playing currently.
I have a 2TB hooked up to my X1 as well.
If only SSDs were more affordable - the price drops aren't happening enough to make a difference. I had to stick with a regular 2TB HDD for my PS4. Also, not a big fan of Seagate being the only cheap TB hdds out there.
"Base models should have started at 2TB"...and what price would you have been willing to pay for that, exactly? Because it would not have been 400 for the ps4, and 500 for the xbone, as they were priced at launch. So what you're suggesting is they should have stuffed in more storage, even though the solution exists for you to buy your own internal and external (respectively) storage? How does that make sense? Sony and Microsoft did what they had to do, they offered the storage that would let them hit the price point they believed consumers would not balk at. Hard to argue with their logic. What you're suggesting would have added significantly to the consoles price at launch, which would have hurt both companies at retail.
Tanuki - why bother with ssd drives when tests have shown them to not make much difference at all?
Thank god a man is getting stuff on disc to save space this gen. Hopefully won't have to upgrade till slim comes out. Stuff installs pretty fast anyway on PS4 so a man can delete old game installs that he won't play for awhile until then. Hopefully the slim has a 1tb HDD in 2016
Who is this man you keep referencing? He sounds interesting.
It's Jaqen Hghar man! Jaqen is surprisingly calm in the face of danger, yet courteous. He uses an odd speech pattern in which he refers to both himself and others using the third person indefinite, e.g. saying "a man thanks a girl" when he is directly addressing Arya and expressing his own thanks.
A character in Game Of thrones Books/TV.
Game of Thrones. I don't think they've mentioned it in the show, but "A man" refers to his religion of the many faced god. The idea is, whomever serves his god has no identity; as such, he can change his facial features. That said, "a man" means he has no identity of his own.
I started getting things on disc again when I had to pay $70 in bandwidth fees re-downloading games I lost when I had to send in my PS4. I won't go digital again until they're either cheaper or ISPs aren't as greedy.
You can do the exact same thing when downloading. My terabyte drive has only 300 gigs left. Once it fills up I'll just delete the games and re-download them if I ever want to play them again.
Do you mind if I call you the alchemist?
@DarXyde He's in the Show, @Jaqen_Hghar Profile picture is from the show...
im pretty excited to play this game.
Same here just pre ordered this and Dying Light so excited ;)
nice, i might consider just going digital for this.
Wait I thought you still had to download the game(via install) from disk
You do, but it takes less than a minute to do so and if I recall correctly in some cases, the install will be smaller than the full download, but I could be wrong. What I do know for certain is that installing a disk has never taken more than a minute for me, even for 50 gb games
That's what I thought too, the impression I've always had was that downloaded games and physical ones both took the same amount of space on the console after the game installs. Only difference really being that with the physical games the disc needs to be in the console.
It seems some people dont understand that the game size depends mostly of the engine build for that game,the way it streams textures,,assets,what type of compression methods.... and not the size of the campain.
They also forget the cutscenes aren't pre-rendered
Some of what you said is a little off. First of all, 1886 can't be heavily compressed like some games b/c The Order 1886 Using MSAA X4 which is very expensive and taxing on the hardware. Too much visual compression along with MSAA X4 will make the graphics looks grainy. They have to find the prefect sweet spot which would probably be above average. Another things, Have you ever opened a game file before. if so than you already know that textures(multiply layers) take a lot of space on a disc.The type of compression used in 1886 BC6H and BC7 would greatly reduced the memory size of the game. I believe [email protected] wanted a higher color gamut which is the reason they went with BC6H and BC7. I can't write about everything on here cause it'd probably take me for ever to finsih. Bottom line, we gotta take [email protected] statement a little more seriously. They said they were putting more focus on the story.
doesn't matter what the file size is...
Size always matter
excellent, i was expecting something around 50 same surprise with i had with infamous
Feb can't get here fast enough, game looks crisp.
I want to go to sleep until Feb 20th but my cat would starve and my boss would fire me.
I'am waiting for this game, and i dont give A ###### what haters say about this game. With everything i know about this game I know i am gonna love iT till dead :-)
Considering some ps3 game sizes that can be between 20-30gb.. I'd say they did a good job here at almost 32gb. With those visuals they must know epic optimization skills for storage space!
31.6 isn't bad considering that the Evil Within Requires 40GB install for both x1/ps4. Well, the Evil Within is a pretty long game fixed in a letterbox view. With 1886 graphics I'd say its going to be a pretty short game. 12hrs to beat it doesn't sound false to me. http://n4g.com/news/1656007...
wow ive not seen any pc game look like this. i hope the game turns out well
hmmm anything less than 32 gigs, tells me it's going to be a bad game.
How does a games file size affect the game itself, you've exceeded the highest level of retardation witnessed by mankind.
it was a joke that people obviously didn't appreciate, my badd
Vanilla Skyrim was 5gb on pc, was a good game... So i hope this was just a bad joke.
I guess you guys didn't like the dry humor. i was obviously joking
Oh look the next thing the press will attack. ;) Don't worry I got your joke. :)
32GB isn't bad at all especially if you take into account the jaw dropping textures and visuals of this game.
Well seeing as how all the cutscenes are actually in-game, that would save a lot of space - so the textures, music and other assets much be pretty huge in size and highly uncompressed.
32gb dl in a yr or 2 when this is free on ps plus cool
Ouch 21gb?? When i buy my PS3 I'll make sure I'll get at least a 2TB hard drive to replace the 500GB.
My god that's pretty good considering the quality of the assets.
Well, you won't save any space since entire games are installed meaning the disc install is as big as the network download, but I have a data allowance so I always go disc. I also love being able to let friends borrow games and borrow theirs so, if it can be helped, disc all the way. I can't say I'm entirely sold on The Order:1886 yet, but I'm slowly being convinced. Reviews I trust will either seal the deal at launch or prompt me to wait a bit. Either way, it's good to know this would be one of the more lenient titles on my HDD. I'm not hurting too much since I have 2TB, but I'm about 6ooGB out in about a year with not too many games I've bought. This year is looking like HDD murder with The Order being one of the less painful space occupants.
I'm shocked that the article isn't "Order 1886 is Perfect Example of Problem with Growing Size of Game Files" or some BS with how much FUD this game has gotten.
I guess it isn't so easy putting a negative spin on the games file size. It's a shame it wasn't lower than 20GB, so that the Birds can crow 'Proof the Order 1886 is a terrible to play, tediously short game' ;/
So pretty much like all games this gen, nothing new here.
Yeah, fine as long as you're not on 2fing mb like me.
