Rise of the Tomb Raider's file size is listed on the Xbox store, and it's rather small compared to other recent Xbox One titles.
Well, it's also coming to Xbox One, might be because of that.
ughhh theres always one of you
It's not the size but the quality that matters.
SO true, still I find it interesting that the file size listed is only a bit larger than the size of its prequel, which was an enchanced edition of the xbox 360 game.
Well fair enough TR on Xbone is just like 17GB anyways... So I dont see the problem here...
Actually when you factor in this game is Single player only and there is no multiplayer unlike the 1st game... 20GB for a single player only experience feels about right imo.
Its funny that people complain when the file size is too big, but now they have to complain when its too small? wtf
Well because it can correlate to not having a lot of content if the size is too small... But I think its only slightly bigger than the last game because they took out that crappy multiplayer.
I cannot believe that comment gets disagrees. A perfect example of quality over quantity is Journey on the PS consoles. Sony fans love that game (and I did too), but it sure wasn't a long lasting experience!
Totally agree. What they have shown looks like more of the great gaming we got w/ the last title. The only thing I worry about is the campaign length. The first reboot had a nicely long epic campaign, and while length isn't everything (or so I'm told) it'd still be nice to have something roughly equivalent in runtime. It was a pretty quick 2 year turnaround between titles so hopefully they had sufficient time to create a superior sequel in every sense.
said NO woman ever..
Lol you got me!
To be fair its a completely single player game that is also coming to 360.
Hurrah for Microsoft, putting consumers first and trying to preserve our bandwidth and hard drive space! They're the best! All of these "Hard drive space of x game revealed!" articles are awful boring :|
I'm more interested in the size of the day 1 patch.....
We all know it will happen -.-
It's called optimization and being able to reuse textures. I don't see what the file size has to do with anything... Look at other games; Lords of the Fallen is about 5GB. I think the game looks pretty good and isn't exactly a short game either. Look at Skyrim on the 360. It's a 3.68GB game. It's also an open world game. How did they manage to compress all those textures, sound, etc. into that much space? Bloodborne on the PS4 is 25GB. I could go on... Just seems like nitpicking.
... by copy&pasting the same asset over and over again? =)
Copying and pasting still takes up room...
All developers do it. It saves space, time and money. It doesn't matter what game it is, there is always something that has been reused. They can deceive your eyes, by bundling the same stuff together, but placing them differently. Take Metal Gear Solid V for example. I bet they have like 10 individual buildings, but each pretty much use the exact same textures. Same with the rocks, grass, trees, bushes, and even the enemies. There isn't really anything unique about everything in the game. That game is only 26.76GB. Just because it's an "open world" game, doesn't mean that it's going to be like 100GB.
It has no multiplayer i thought 20gigs+ is big for a single player game.
You just need to look at the witcher 3 size.20 or so gig for what you get.
The Witcher 3's file size sits around 30-40GB when installed (depends on platform)
I'm out , I don't waste my time on any game under 22 gigs , maybe , just MAYBE if there is a big patch that ups the gigs ill try it but I don't see how it could be any good until it cracks my 22 gig minimum...
#retartedpointofview You are aware that MGS V is a 25GB game, right? I cant see what a 3GB difference can make in a game like Tomb Raider where the games' solely about cutscenes and +/- 17 hours of gameplay compared to MGS V, which only has 4 hours worth of fmvs, a massive empty map and what feels like the same repetitive missions over and over again.. really, I cant... And FYI MGS GZ is a 4GB game and only lasts like 15 minutes at most.. So your argument that games should be measured in GB to determine quality is ignorant. Your argument is idiotic.
I am pretty confident Wit's post was 100% sarcasm...
I play file size , fps , and res so my argument is dead on balls accurate...you play whatever you want...
Somehow I feel he was being synical
'#retartedpointofview ' Those damn retarts retarting everything up in their retarted way. I despise them. Always making mistakes when they post, that's what annoys me most. Silly retarts.
Have you heard of the band 1023MB? Probably not as they haven't had a gig yet
That's a fine joke lol. Although I'm not sure I understand a bit of it. Ahem...
okay the file size is informative, but making assumptions about the quality of the game is ridiculous.
Yes, thank God! I really hate huge file sizes...anything more than 27 is a definite no download for me
You can't judge a game by its game size, it's just stupid
I am trying to figure out why this is even considered news.
the size of Lara Croft's breasts is flat?
The only thing that matters is her booty, since you always look at her from behind.
Imo PS1 TR2 along with TR3 will ALWAYS be my fav out of all them. Sad they only remade TR1=TRA for GC/PS2/XB ect. But anyways long live Croft I guess!
We have already seen gameplay, and it has looked solid. I see no reason to be concerned.
Perhaps its been developed for last gen and ported to this one, just like so many other titles this generation. Graphics don't look that much better to me.
No 12K textures? :rolleyes:
I think if developers want to sell more copies of their games they should consider toning down the size. Objects on screen with their own animation tend to add up a lot to the space required, and while thoughtful it's not necessary. It all depends on how you use all those objects more than anything.
Larger than TR Definitive and it is a great game.
Nathan Drake has more gigs in his pinky finger.
It looks like a xbox 360 game. Hopefully they fix that shit when it comes to ps4/pc.
