The install size of few Xbox One exclusive has been revealed along with back coverart
Hard drives are going to fill up fast, good gracious.
Damnnnnn. 47 gigs for ryse? My hard drive will be full day one! Guess ill have to delete and reinstall games often
I've ordered a 1TB HDD for my ps4, might take advantage and just install all the games I get. And when PS Plus picks up more a few years into it's life cycle I'll need that for that time. but lol everyones going crazy, Have they forgotten that you can just play from the disc?
@ minimur You can't really play from the disc on X1. All games MUST be installed. I'm pretty sure you can play whiiiile they install but there is apparently no option of not installing. You need the space no matter what if you want to play.
That's too much. I hope there will be an option to install the mandatory files only to get the game working, not the whole 47 gigs. At this rate the HDD will be full with launch games.
@FamilyGuy but you don't have to wait. You can play while it downloads in the background
@minimur12 Correct me if I'm wrong, but for Remote Play we have to install the game to the HDD or have the disc in the PS4. Anyone planning to take advantage of that will have to install everything as well, which is my big concern and why I say 1TB HDD isn't enough we need confirmation on saving to externals or something.
Too bad it's not upgradable. Just sit your external hard drive beside your power brick.
Well, graphically it looks pretty high up there, so its understandable. Much more so than the 45 for CoD Ghosts.
Its time! To use... Teh Powaaaaa Of Da KLAUD!
No you don't. Xbox One has free cloud storage for all LIVE members., no need for a new HD just store in the cloud. Microsoft perks how nice.
@Blackout #1.1.9 Please be joking, please be joking, please be joking, PLEASE BE JOKING!
no digital downloads for me
PS4 is the same. It does not have installs from disk. To play without a disk you must purchase it from the PSN and download it. PS4 caches the same way XBOne does. You can play when inserting the disk, but the OS caches the disk to the HDD - all of it - in the background. You won't notice and you have no control over it. It does not support manual installs any more (like PS3 did).
Yeah but Ju on the Ps4 you are only losing at most about 40-50gb to play a game, and the rest of the HDD is left to you. Whereas on the X1 all games must be installed so, everygame you play is taking up like 40-50gbs. Huge difference!
For real. I was hoping that 49GB for COD was just an anomaly, but doesn't seem so. Guess my gaming investment is going up some more for a bigger HD.
The 49gb is still an anomaly for COD, with those bland textures. I still don't understand why it would be so large...
@mhunterjr The same thing can be said for the 30gb for Max Payne 3 on pc, the bottom line is they are using uncompressed data and textures which are easier and faster for the system to read, which (in max payne 3's case, allows for faster loading during cutscenes so there are no hangups when the game begins after the cutscene is over) helps for seamless transfers. Final Fantasy XV has said to be a 7:3 ratio of in engine to CGI cutscenes that transfer into gameplay without a load screen, you can expect the same for probably most games now. Bottom line is as games get bigger, they want them to load faster so you aren't waiting for cutscenes to load or levels to buffer, and the best way to do that is to not compress the data. Edit: Also, installing it makes it load a lot faster than running off the disc, as the BDD in the systems (probably both the same) will run at 2x for 50GB discs, and 1x for 100gb discs...which if you don't know much about disc drives, most DVD drives run at like 24x or 26x.
@Ryno Compressed or not, it shouldn't matter to a pc with an SSD, just saying.
I have a question: If every game I buy is 50 GB, and since the Xbox One has a non-replaceable HDD, what will I do once the space runs out? Edit: NVM, I read down further in the comments and apparently USB drives are compatible, but not at launch
MS gonna need a solution for this quick. Titan Fall, Destiny, Watch Dogs among others will fill that thing quick.
they have said you'll be able to plug in an external drive into one of the USBs
it's already got usb 3.0 so external hard drives won't be a problem, speed will be fast too.
Have they said if their is a size limit on how much space on an external HDD can be used? I really hope they have not done something stupid like cap the size again. I have a 250GB HDD. never needed to use a USB stick, so the 16GB cap never really bothered me. But with 30GB+ installs that 500GB HDD does not seem sufficient. We need at least 1TB this gen.
External HDDs are not available at launch on XB1.
External HDDs will not work with XB1 at launch with no date given
Free Cloud storage for all LIVE members. Look it up, your all set.
@blackout - I don't think that applies to installs...
don't fret none, you can hook up an external drive and set it next to your power brick and kinect. Hope you don't mind a cluttered entertainment center.
@blackout please dont tell me youre being serious? the cloud storage is for saved game data. not game installs.
I don't want an external hd. I want my $500 console to be complete.
Holy Shit!!. Dead rising 3= 35 GB, Ryse = 47GB, Forza 5 = 35GB, 117GB gone on launch day, 383 GB left for other games!! Glad PS4's HDD is replaceble,seems xbox one buyers will have to wait till 2014 to increase their storage. Can you imgaine?!?! 30-50 GB install for 1 game!!!
