Forza 7's massive 95GB install size is split between disc and an optional 50GB download...and Xbox One X owners will have to download even more data.
Wtf... the amount of memory for this game is insane.
high quality textures do that. 4k is the reason why.
Exactly this. Its only gonna get bigger too 😃
Back when Meter gear solid was coming out for PS3 xbox owners where saying it was exaggerated to force people into thinking they needed a game machine with a blu ray player. NOW all the sudden it is legit?! Are you saying a full game like that Metal gear solid does not need that much storage but a racing game does?
dem 4K assets and textures :P
You obviously didn't read the article . The 50 gig update is just for X1, the X1X will have additional big update.
My Australian internet just had a stroke.... wtf 😂
? It was a joke. I was merely referencing the idea that these enhancements come with an extra burden. Game sizes may get huge with the XB1X.
going to need a 4+ TB external hdd with the x1x
I have 6tb on my pro with 4 tb used up. Also own over 300 paid games on the ps4. Lol
wow i hope you bought most of those on sale. that's a lot of money for games you'll probably never be able to finish
Microsoft first party titles sure do take up a lot of data
Gears4 is 100GB
Halo 5 was 96gbs Quantum Break 128gbs Yeah their first party titles are huge
Already pre-ordered the digital Ultimate Edition, but I needs all my content...every car, livery, race suit... all of it.
so why not include 2 disc's?? :/ i know it says optional, but if someone wants it they shouldn't have to DL 50gb :/ all 2nd disc needs to be is an install disc and then left in the case.
Because this is the DDL, soon to be DMC, era.
@The Jackel "so why not include 2 disc's?? " Because the ability for the Xbox One to have multiple discs has only just recently been enabled, more than likely too late for Forza 7 to take advantage.
True it would have been nice to not dl 50gb straight off the bat for it. I have unlimited downloads and fast net so doesnt affect me im just thinking of the others that have crappy net that want to take advantage of the console straight away. Although ill get this on PC due to the steering wheel being a ps4 and pc compatible just be nice for those i mentioned above
Don't get mad at me but. They do it the same reason other publishers do it. Because it saves them money, it cost money(granted only a little) for them to put it on another disc. This has ALWAYS been the reason you have day one updates. Pass the cost of the storage on to the consumer. I don't like it but that is the reason to do it.
why would someone get mad at you for that? It's all well and good to save on the money side of things but it benefits the dev also to spend that extra money to do it also. It makes a consumer that doesn't buy digital for many reasons feel like they are being looked after in a sense of huge files. i don't expect them to release dlc on a disc when its 10gb though as that is wasting resources and money I personally wouldn't compare this to a day one update though, as they tend to vary from 500mb-4gb this is a hell of a lot bigger and without the right net a 4gb dl alone may take you an hour+ to dl just imagine how long it would take for 50gb. its more about a person that wants to take full advantage of the new console they spent $500 on ASAP.
Urggggghhhhhhh God damn it
6 hour download, PC will be having an all nighter XD
Physical discs are no longer games and just a physical key to a digital download.
Aye and thats why I've got so many digital games now. I still love having that game case in front of me and for collecting though, otherwise i'd be 100% digital for sure.
But I was downvoted like crazy when I commented on another article about 4k images/textures lmao... 2tb will probably hold 10 games on XOX.
It would take me forever to download that
Holy hell... I'll stick with my Forza 6 for now
One more reason I'm glad I'm not getting an X1X.
lol sucks for you.
Not hardly - there really isn't much of a visual difference between the two. I'll be picking up the X1S during Black Friday-Cyber Monday for $200 or less, and will be happy to save the $300+ not thrown away on the X1X. That will be $300+ ready for the XB2 which will probably get released in 2019.
!! 2 discs would save alot of time for consu.... oh yeah its MS never mind. Next!
Thank god cos here in regional AU it takes a bloody day to download this, maybe even two days. Our internets are so backwards huehue 😢
So to play this on both my PC and 1X I will need to download over 200 gigs. Glad im not on a cap or I would be screwed though it will take forever to download but those on caps are going to feel it, with the state of the FCC and ISP's the way they are those that love physical media will be happy awhile longer.
Should be on 2 discs....
Yup, least its not required to play at all Gears of War 4 Annoyed the hell out of me can't even play single player with the retail disc until you patch the game, day 1 it was still 30GB.
