Thankfully, Sony has come to their senses and have reduced the minimum save file for PS4 games.
Yes! Now I'll have room to install 17 copies of The Order: 1886.
I never noticed until I clicked this link
Was not even aware of this, might have to delete some old saves.
Why the hell is there a minimum? And the maximum should be increased so MineCraft on PS4 can have larger worlds.
There may be a standardized structure to the save file format that had a lower limit, though I wouldn't have expected it to be so big.
why's this news, those games came out months ago.
I had no idea this was even a thing. Well I'm glad they shrink it down, I guess :/ I don't see why there should be a minimum
Only about 2MB's too big but it's not end of the world stuff 3mb's per game save on 400+ GB more than enough besides there's always the cloud storage ;) but yeah pretty large save files when they barely clock a MB on 90% of PS3 games sure it'll come down over time like the massive install file sizes, what I don't understand is why the entire 40/50gb has to be installed to your hard drive and then you have to keep the disc in? (I understand the keeping the disc in part, otherwise wed all install and lend or trade to a friend) however do we really need all 100% of the disc on the hard drive when it's still sat in the drive everytime 10-15gb is enough specially when the patches updates and DLC all start dropping with 1gb updates, hey ho not like it's the end of the world.
hard drives are faster than bluray drives.
Thank you ! I already filled up my cloud saving storage now I won't have to save them in usb drives
Um, a min save file size sounds far fetched. As a dev it makes no sense for there to be a file size restriction on anything except a max file size.. I want sources because I'm calling bs
The min save file size is true, if you have access to a PS4, save a few games and go into your save files. I've been complaining about this since launch as it's just wasteful, glad they've lowered it :)
All because you see save files that are large on your ps4 doesn't mean Sony set a restriction on file size. It's much more likely that the file save for those games came out to be the file sizes you see. This is why I doubt the source, so unless there's a plausible source for this news, I still call bs.
If that's the case, then why is every save file that is on my PS4 the same size? over 50 games all with the same file size seems to suggest the minimum :)
Finally, my cloud drive kept filling up and I had no idea why. Now I do. Hopefully this helps.
On the ps4 there is no storage cap on the PS+ cloud space... you can have gigs of file without restraint. Just the ps3 has a cap on storage.
Mine has a cap. I can screen grab it stating my cloud drive is full and it can't upload saves. How do I fix that?
@Soldierone. I guess your right, I just looked everything up and seems the limit is there per Playstation: "Cloud storage and discounts I can confirm that on top of the combined 2GB cloud storage we currently provide for PS3 and PS Vita users, members with a PS4 will receive an additional 1GB of cloud storage." http://blog.eu.playstation.... I could have sworn they announced something along the lines of unlimited storage (which is silly they would have a 1 - 2 gig cap in today's day and age).
