Until Dawn is available to pre-load on PS4, but it's not a small file size and will take up a considerable amount of space.
done first hour at work, great game.
really? can you post more impressions pls?
I played 2 hours so far and it's like a Resident Evil mixed with Heavy Rain
Well, GAF's impressions are surely positive. Around 10 hours playtrough, of course, with multiple choices and endings. Read the the last few pages if you want. You will find more opinios. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
@nus @butchertroll thank you so much guys.
Read this if you want. All in one place : http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
I finished it last night. Loads of fun. Here are my initial impressions. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I don't see the option to download it , tried everything.
Where are you US or EU? Edit - North America even, can't leave out the Canadians!
Taken from the article: [Update] Some users in specific regions may not be able to pre-load just yet, but it is available for some. If your region has not yet allowed pre-loading of Until Dawn, go to your library and select ‘auto download’ and it will auto-magically download when it becomes available, which for most will be sometime today. Hope this helps :)
I am in the US and I was able to download it from the store on the console.
Question: Is it possible to insert a larger harddrive that's atleast 2 tb and then add ssd memory as well? Will they both work simultaneously?
er no , there is only one hard drive bay . With an external drive ? You can back up but you cannot install executable game files , and have it running simultaneously that way (except of course as a some usb storage with media files)
I'm talking about the solid state drive. There's a part of the ps4 you can open to insert in the ssd.
Um, same place where the existing one goes. Sheesh http://lmgtfy.com/?q=How+to... There
there's only one drive bay, so you'd have to choose one or the other
Huge download there. How long is Until Dawn?
Approximately nine hours, according to a developer interview.
That's not bad.
It's about 8 - 9 hours but remember, each playthrough will be different.
Indeed. I do think the whole "hundreds of endings" statement was rather far-fetched by a landslide, but the replay value is extensive. I imagine that for me, Until Dawn will be another Heavy Rain; complete in a day or two, but spend months, if not years continuously replaying it to make different choices and obtain different endings. Considering that Until Dawn's choice system is more expansive than Heavy Rain's, not to mention that Until Dawn's theme is my dream come true, I'll spend even more time replaying it.
Too much game, I'll wait for MGS V.
Why not both? :(
Not everyone has money for every game.
These games nowadays take up so much space I'm sick of deleting installs. Then if I want to play a game like killzone. I have redownload all the dlc . I hate that shit. It would take hours for the 15 minutes I would want to play it. When fun turns into a chore. Suk my balls
If it's such a bother then get a bigger HDD . It's the same problem be it with discs or digital versions , as they install everything . Hell it was already that way on ps3/360. Personally i dont feel the need to install and access all of them at once ... and i rarely desinstall stuff i might touch again in the near future
Changing HDDs is annoying because you have to reinstall everything... And there's no easy to install anything bigger than 2tb... Just be cause you don't need access to all your stuff, doesnt mean others shouldnt want that luxury. Games are only going to get bigger...
When did i say other shouldnt want it ? I just mentioned my personal experience . As for the HDD it's not as if you're supposed to change it many times , you're still basically backing up the 500 initial gb of data . And going over 2tb is a bit overboard right now imo . a 2TB drive is close to over 30 installed games of 50gb each , which most people are unlikely to have and need for quite a while . If someone still do , then that person should consider really cleaning up stuff everyonce in a while .. it will never be enough . But hey , to each their own .
I seriously need to get a 2tb drive to put in. I have the stock 500 and am out of space. Even games like GTA which I have the disc version of take up 40 gigs or so. 1tb would be a band aid for a while, 2tb should do it for the long run. On topic, very much looking forward to playing this.
And this is why I buy physical.... Tired of downloading 40-50 GB games
I buy physical unless it's a digital only, the only exception so far being with DriveClub. Looking forward to picking up my copy of Until Dawn on Friday :D
That's why pre-loading exist. The game comes out in 2 1/2 days. You can easily download that with 50+ hours of time, and that's if you want to play right at midnight.
Yeah but if you need to make space later you can just uninstall and reinstall later with the physical disc. With digital if you delete it then you'll have to redownload the big files. I think that's what Travis was talking about.
@Kurisu While that's true, that's been a known issue since before the PS4 launched. At least you can do something about it by upgrading your HDD. Download while you play also exist so that helps ease the pain of downloading 50GB.
Physical or digital, it doesn't really matter anymore, since both will take the exact same amount of space. I guess it's faster to install from a Bluray, but still.
Are you forgetting about download speeds, throttling, and data caps?
@mhunterjr I'm not, but are you forgetting that when you get a game day one, you have to get it in the morning at the store or after work, then you have to install it on your console, plus you have to download day one patches, and it's more expensive because of the taxes.
Still need to install the 40-50 gigs plus download/redownload whatever ridiculous size patch there is...there is a lot of problems with these sizes and having to force install them.
Odd, when I tried it says it will not be ready for 1.2 days
46gb!?!? :| well that went well...
Lol.. i should take a screen shot but I have 12 left. And most of my games are physical.
Uninstall a game your never gonna play again or not gonna play for a long time.
Too big to download, guess I'm getting a physical copy then...
But it's the same install size...
There's a difference between having to download 50GB vs having to just install 50GB. If I'm downloading it, there's the risk of hitting a data limit cap (if one has such), slowing the internet down for normal use, and dropping connections altogether and not being able to finish. If it's just an install, there's no internet anything happening and its much simpler. Just put the disk in and let it go to work. If the internet cuts out on you for whatever reason, you don't have to wait for it to come back to install. It'll just keep going. There's no risk that data cap. And one's internet won't slow down.
Even if you drop connections you can resume the download . We're way past those stone age of being blocked at an ingame downloading menu while hoping it doesnt die with the ps4 and xb1 . There is no fix for caps , however i agree . But the issue still poses itself even in a lesser fashion with patches . My guess is it wont matter much to the cap if its a 40gb full game or a 7gb patch for even the disc version of that . Sadly those folks are still getting screwed
this is why a digital only marketplace would never work, a friend of mine took nearly 2 days to download the black ops 3 beta (12gb on dsl) unfortunately where she lives there is no better option for internet.
Not that i disagree , but most release are made available to download before the official retail release ... and possibly even earlier than those for titles with the digital preorder
Thats perfectly fine because there is the physical option, without that it leaves ALOT of customers unable to purchase the game.
Id say if her internet is that slow, shes gonna have trouble playing the game anyways...
Until Dawn specifically is a single player story mode game, regardless the point is a large amount of people do not have access to high speed unlimited internet and until they do an all digital future is a problem, not only for consumers but the publishers as well. There is no doubt it would lead to less sales, because aside from people who simply cannot download 40-50gb, there are plenty of people who wont buy full priced digital games for a myriad of reasons.
Yea we need external storage options, Sony.
I have to question the intelligence of the people who disagree with your statement.
You can buy the Nyko Data Bank for PS4 and use up to a 4TB hdd. The Data bank can handle more but a lot of people say over 4tb and the ps4 starts having issues since it wasn't designed for those drives.
Nah, i'm fine with a 2TB SSHD (brand new) for $89.00, or significantly less on sale. My buddy got a Seagate 2TB SSHD under 50 bucks on sale, crazy. Plus a Solid State Hybrid Drive is significantly faster than an HDD, if u own a PS4 u should just replace your stock 500gb HDD w/a 1TB SSHD for 60-70$ or a 2TB SSHD for 80-90$. U get double or 4x the space and approximately 3x the bootup, loading, app opening speed ect. Then sell your stock HDD.
Where are you getting a 2Tb SSHD for 80-90$?
@ skufflz I saw a 2.5 2TB for 87$ a month ago. http://www.amazon.com/gp/of... http://www.amazon.com/gp/of... If u find sales u can go cheaper. Shop around. Cyber Monday.
Cool be fine with it. I have a SSHD in my PS4 too. But I'm not living in the here and now. All these games are large, and PS4 isn't yet 2 years old. Space runs out. *Nothing* about having external options is a bad thing. Like Bobertt said, have to question why people would disagree.
@ kwiet External HD's are pretty expensive. Also, ms wants you to get external instead of easily swapping your HD (like you can w/PS4) for a faster bigger HD at 60 bucks. A 2TB SSHD should be everything you need for your PS4.
The 500gb storage has already reached its peak for me. Now I have to look into additional storage...this is honestly a first...two years and limit reached...fack.
I filled up my ps4 storage in the first month I owned it haha :/
*Falls out of chair*
In one month? I find it hard to believe there was even 500Gb worth of games in the first month.
I'm actually glad the file size is so large, it tells u there is alot of content/polygons ect in the game. I'm sure they compressed as much as they could, the game is just loaded with potential content.
