These games will fill your poor PS4's HDD in no time.
Yeezus there used to be a time when 500GB seemed like enough for a time. Not even my 4TB HDD seems like it'll be sustainable.
4TB is more than enough. Even 2TB is enough but you might need to delete stuff eventually. I should have gotten 2TB when PS4 came out instead of 1TB, because with 1TB, I really have to delete stuff often.
2TB isn't much better 4 years down the line got mine on launch and yeah 4TB would be nice 2 is manageable but yeah 3/4TB would have been ideal for me.
I have 9 TB of space on my Xbox One and nearly 4 TB of it is filled right now. And I have deleted a few games that I know I'll never play again. So, 4TB is not "more than enough".
Can you imagine this gen with 4K titles? Can you imagine NEXT GEN?
Next gen is going to require one 8TB external and one 2TB internal
@InThe- lol exactly hopefully Sony and Microsoft given okay for allowing internal hard drives more than two terabyte.
I just wish they would allow us to fit an internal 3.5" drive, that way we're not already maxing the internal drive from the get go
Absolutely agreed I at least want this system to accommodate for larger hard drives at least by choice. Don't get me wrong the designs that I've seen for larger hard drive bay is 100% doable but I would just like to see a design by Sony and Microsoft officially for those options. I just don't see me realistically connecting an external to my Playstation 4 for life as it just seems a bit ridiculous and over-the-top I'm actually thinking about simply just getting a bigger harddrive in buying that fancy 3.5 hard drive bay lol I don't like the way it makes the PlayStation 4 look but it's much more of a reasonable option than connecting an external every single time I want to play a game.
My 5tb is a 90% capacity. Still so many games on the way too
Could some of you point me out to a great external HDD for the PS4? Right now I am looking at the Seagate Backup Plus 4TB, it claims to be compatible with the PS4. Anything cheaper for the same performance? what do you guys think?
Couldn't people just delete games they aren't playing anymore?
Couldn't people just sell games they aren't playing anymore?
@InTheZoneAC Is that a real question or am i supposed to infer what you actually mean?
Yes, but unless you are one of those that never goes back and replays games you will have to go through the download and installation again when you want to go back to a game that you deleted.
Battlefield, that game is king of rape space
GTA V yep... doom yep did have battlefield 4 but had to go also Cod infinite warfare is a beast I actually quite enjoyed it (campaign) but need that to access my modern warfare remaster both a solid 60gb best part of 120gb for them 2 😩🙄 luckily it takes seconds to install discs on PS4.
so, as underwhelming as this gen is, there should be no trouble with a 500gb hard drive. so many remasters no one needs, so many sequels someone else can pay for and be bored with them. i am fine with my terabyte. will never ever be able to fill it up when then industry keeps bein as lame as it is.
I have 2TB and constantly find myself deciding what to delete to make space for new games. There are way too many good video games and different and varied experiences. Got to love video games and variety.
Thankfully storage is cheap as chips these days. If you have a decent collection or play multiple games at one time you should just upgrade.
Forgot about ESO.
Ah you beat me to it, yeah 90GB just for the game without any dlc.
Where's Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered That was like over 120 gigs together
no biggie if you dont mind deleting stuff every now and then. Anyone that has gamed on pc at any point in time is used to deleting games they no longer play, seems many console gamers just cant wrap their head around it yet.
That's because we've never had to do it before. We had partial installs, patches, forced dlc we had to download even though we didn't want it, and it was an abolute pain in the neck, but we didn't have to install the entirety of the game (except of course if it was a digital purchase)! And games this gen are big, really really big. We had what we thought were huge games last-gen (on the PS3 at least), like MGS4 GOTP, GOW3, GT5, etc. but they were never as ridiculously big as this gen! 50GB here, 60GB there. Heck I even consider myself lucky if I see a game only installs over 30GB on my PS4 Pro hard drive. I don't understand why we have to deal with that garbage. Sure games look better this gen, but surely there's not a whole world of differences that would warrant having such huge files is there? But if those huge files just stayed on the disc that wouldn't be a problem, but the problem is like I said, they're entirely installed on your HDD, willy-nilly, we're not even asked how we feel about it!
BO3 with all dlc's is almost 130GB
It won't make a HUGE difference, but if you guys take a lot of screenshots, or have trophies set to auto-screenshot, switch from PNG to JPEG (or turn it off completely) might help with HDD space. Just a small/other suggestion...
Arkham Knight with all DLC is something like 75gb's. Forget the exact number. But easily the biggest ive seen.
GTA v, battlefield 4
Thank god both PS4 and XB1 allow for external hard drives.
WWE 2K17 is the highest on my system at just over 68GBs, GTAV coming in a close second with 65 or so. I bought a 3TB external for the Xbox One, I desperately need one for the PS4.
I put a 2TB in my ps4 when I first got it and haven't had any real issues until lately when I've had to delete a few games to make room, I have a fair bit of bf1 footage I've been cutting down so that helps as well
When 4k textures launch this nov games will be 100+gb. I think forza was at or above 100gb. My 4tb hdd is already half full
I have a PS4Pro which has a 1tb hdd interal, just bought a Western Digital 2tb external hdd yesterday for $99. Atleast now I won't have to delete games that I plan to go back to soon. Like Horizon Zero Dawn, finished the game but deleted it to make room for newer games to be played, now it new game plus added I will redownload and store it on the external.
Man. Good thing none of those are over 100gb. Some may be with DLC. It's going to be rough when games are going to go over 100 gigs with no DLC or patches.
I bought a 5TB External seagate and never looked back! A little under 100$ US to boot. The only downside is the fact that it will always take up a USB port. So some games that you might want to use, say a HOTAS control stick AND your VR would have to be installed on the internal drive. But it is a decent cheap solution.
Hdd space is the number one motivator to beat games these days. Glad the pro camewith1 TB.
Just wait until a base game is 100GB's alone. We might get a game close to 200GB's when you install the DLC and updates.
