Halo Master Chief Collection has gone gold and available for pre download and pre order at the Xbox Store now
65gigs my hardrive is nearly full up from downloading.
Then get an External
Wow 65 gb is insane!... Better get my external in a week or so for real. good stuff
65GB! Holy shiz!!
Considering this is 4 full games and a movie, I'm not surprised at all by the size.
Holy Smokes! Damm I'm so glad I just got my 3TB External HDD last week for $115 I only had about 3GB left after my FH2 download. Also if you guys look around I think you can find some good externals even cheaper, I'm just a bit impatient. They really did a nice job with the external support, literally the setup only took a few seconds after pluging it in, ask me if I wanted to make it my default storage, which I did so I could pre-download SSO. Now this HaloMCC is freakin huge but when you consider its 4 SP games and all the maps even from pc it sort of makes sense. I love having all my games digital, just a couple clicks or a voice command away from gameplay. I think that should cover me for the rest of this gen because once it fills up I'm sure I'll have a ton of games I'm not playing anymore that I can delete.
So it is safe to assume this will be a 2 disc set? Unless they are using 75 or 100gb bluray discs. I wonder how it will be split up. 1 & 2 on one disc, 3 & 4 on the other.
There's a 20GB day one patch lol. Jesus. I feel sorry for people with bandwidth caps.
cant you just install a bigger internal one? external drives are s....lll........o............w
Not bad. Last I checked the new cod aw was around 45 gigs just for the one game.
delete games you don't play or have finished, you can always re-download them
True but that can be a pain.. especially if you do not have good internet speed
This is why I stay as physical as I can XD I'm soooooooo lazy it's like my pic I have used all my space before and I have a 1tb HD small for the times I know, they are just gonna have to make some yottabyte HDDs before I'm happy XD
@webbyy If you dont have good internet speed then you are really going to hate trying to download 65 gig. If the speed worries you and you dont want to clear space I would grab a hard copy and then only worry about the 20 gig download
Buy physical? Problem solved for everything then. Now seeing as this is 65GB and were not even a year into the life cycle I cant wait to see if games get even bigger on these consoles.
Wont make a difference, you still need to install. ..Catch up dude! I cant wait for this collection, hype of the meter!
I really doubt games this size will be common this gen. MCC comes with five games worth of assets...
I hear its a 20+ gig patch day 1 to enable the multiplayer.
what about the disc version,there gonna force people to download a 20gb patch ?? surely there gonna let folk preload the patch?>
If digital then yes, you can pre-download the content patch
45Gb on disc + 20Gb download for the multiplayer part.
My 2TB external laughs at your dilemma and load times.
does 65gb means 2 Blu Ray discs? @Spid3r6 - its not one game, but 4.
theyre only including 1 disk. the remaining 20GB has to be downloaded via a day 1 "patch". Because money.
65 Gigs of PEW PEW!!! I cant bloody wait!
@343 Industries, I asked you a longtime ago to make Halo 2 Campaign Co-op via Horizontal Splitscreen, instead of vertical splitscreen. Halo 2 is the only Halo Game I've yet to beat in Campaign Co-op in Legendary Mode, now, it will be done in November. Thanks for listening!
I'm glad I just bought that 4tb drive from Amazon.
I got an external hard drive. Best thing I did.
Holy Smokes that is one heavy game, lucky I bought a 2tB external.
Yeah ive just done the same things 2TB should last me a bit. Cant wait for this game.
Well it's not one game, but 5. Good time to have at least one external.
Is everyone new here today??? 65 gig is not a lot it is not one game it's all of the halo games with the multiplayer maps etc.
I got a 4tb harddrive I got from amazon 2 weeks ago for 149$. Im getting another next month but im good with this install size
Glad I still have half my HDD space available. This game is available for pre download pretty early
WOW 65GB!!!... My One is ready... I'm definitely have to delete some games though so my One can breath.
20 GB day one patch...Are they patching in the full game or something? The hell is up with that...
the patch is for the retail version i believe cuz the game takes up 45gb or whatever is the blu ray space so the 20gb patch is the online multiplayer part and they didn't want to cut down on content just to get it all on one disk
What? A patch? A Last Of Us avatar? My my! What A perfect stealth trolling opportunity! Too bad you are so obviously and obliviously trans-frickin'-parent... 20 gb patch is beans when you really consider all the content this collection has in it. I mean, really now... People know what to expect with this game... you can't run a smear campaign against the God like legacy of console fps' with a wimpy whine about 20 Gigs of Master Chief Masterpiece data.. Try doing research next time... helps with foot in mouth syndrome. Better yet, keep your hate out of stuff you really don't care about in the first place...
So.. just because of his avatar he's not allowed to ask a rather obvious question? I mean 20GB is quite big for a patch. Instead you instantly attack him for no reason and from what I can tell.. you sound incredibly butthurt from the TLOU's insane succes. It's a really good game, even if you own an Xbox you're allowed to discuss and show your appreciation for it. Grow up!
No Ben, he is allowed to ask the question.. and yeah 20 gb is kinda large.. BUT here's the key to the whole mystery... he said "are they patching in the whole game..." who "patches in a whole game"? First off, What does that even mean? Who has EVER patched in a whole game? SOUNDS like an implication that he thinks that 343 is releasing a half complete, mostly broken, awful piece of crap, and is being "shady" or dishonest.. a Sony fan's favorite card to play... MS is evil, remember? Why would I be butt hurt about TLOU's success? I agree it is a good game.. I'm not mad about the game, and Im not bashing TLOU in any way, shape, or form... And how is informing him that he's easily been spotted stealth trolling- Attacking him? I mentioned his Avatar, because it is only PART of the first dead give away... the REST is done by reading tidbits of his comment history. And I would never compare the paltry 10 or so million sales of TLOU to the Halo Series sales... if, like most people on this site seem to think- that Sales equals success. Im not bashing TLOU mind you.. it is a more riveting and mature and bold game than Halo games are... but we're not gonna compare two different types of game and two very different settings for the Game's Universe/world to each other are we? That's another staple of this site... that people "can't compare things" even somewhat similar games like Driveclub and Forza Horizon 2... it doesnt count if the comparisons somehow make Sony look bad, but if people are talking about how Infamous Second son is allowed to be sub-60fps because "It has soooo many graffix! It's open world!OMG! It haz so many particle effecks" "Suckerpunch is magicians!" But yet claim that Ubisoft is lying about what they can or can't do with the PS4 when the xbox one and ps4 are at a tie for resolution and framerate... nevermind that rez. And framerate are only PART of graphical fidelity, and do NOT define a game's visuals indefinitely. Hell, the PS4 version of Assassin's Creed Unity could have better textures than the Xb1 version! The PS4 version might have better sound quality or faster loading times, or better shadows or dynamic lighting or... WELL... ANYTHING! But no! The masses have spoken! Ubisoft sucks because Sony fans think they know EVERYTHING ONCE AGAIN! But they then bash Forza Horizon 2 for not having better graphics than driveclub, even tho driveclub is by a Sony's fanboy definitions: Not a sim, therefore NOT hardcore, and is an arcade racer for bro gamers... and is "better" JUST because the graphics are prettier. See what I mean? Sony fans have an excuse for EVERYTHING, and when that doesn't work, then All they have to do is pretend they have a killer PC that is better than BOTH of the consoles. A killer pc that they couldn't possibly have built because they don't even know how to build an argument. I personally just wish people would all get along... but since I also can't possibly allow hypocritical, goal post shifting elitists to frolic without at least letting them know they can't fool EVERYONE.... you now see where my sarcastic tone and fervor comes from.
Holy shit you wrote an essay for something I was joking about. Don't take video games so seriously buddy. No shit their not patching in the whole game it was sarcasm -.- You talk about the Last of Us to Forza Horizon 2 to having a killer PC build?!? You are all over the place lol! Seriously calm down a bit! It's time to stop posting. http://i48.photobucket.com/...
might as well go ahead and get that external HDD. I dont get why MS knew games would be this size and didn't make the internet HDD swappable - honestly. I hate external drives
externals are easier for everyone to use? why force people who don't know or aren't comfortable opening their console to put a new HD in? also you can technically swap it if you want it just voids warranty and is a task
Add to the fact that even an internal HDD can fill up if you buy all digital. Just hook up your external and you're good to go. I will say that both should have come with 1tb HDDs.
If they made it swappable it would be as easy as the 360
I actually like external vs internal. To me there are no single drives big enough for this gen. Even if you have a 4TB drive, after 3 years this gen avid gamers will be managing the drive space. What I am doing is buying the USB powered 2 TB WD pocket drives. When they fill I will buy another and start dividing drives by game genres. Did that last gen on my 360. I have 14 x 320 GB drives full of games classified by action/adventure (5 drives), rpg/strategy (2 drives), sports (2 drives), racing (1 drive), shooters (3 drives), and other (1 drive). When you have a lot of games external is the only way that works.
Neo, I like your idea. I didnt want an external with its own power source. I think im gonna buy a 2TB today and start this.
Internal is limited, external is essentially infinite. You can get some great looking externals now or you can go for a small one that you can easily hide away. The external ports on these new consoles are also faster than the internal ones so you get maximum performance. You also don't have to throw away a perfectly good internal hard drive when you want to upgrade. And it is literally plug and play. External is such an amazing option, compared to internal. The only reason to hate on it is if you have the console that doesn't do it.
external drives are slow as ****, too.
Serious please stop and educate yourself.
@ ThatOneguy You have no idea what your talking about.
Externals are much better. If you are forced to swap, then what you have to move all your games off and are left with a useless drive!! Thats just fragging stupid!!!!!!! Smart thinking MS! Kudos!!!!
Glad I bought the 3tb external.. 20+ games and think I still have 2.7tb free :) Knew this would be a large game.. Kinda had a feeling all those mp maps would be a separate download. Can't do all that on one disk lol
Dam gonna take an hour or so to install..patience is not my strong suit.
1 hour? man i would love it if my X1 would install so fast for me it has terrible when it comes to installing games and downloading them! and i know it is not my connection or router etc i have my X1 in my routers DMZ and still its very slow! playing online is fine but installing games or downloading games is painfully slow! On my Wiiu its super fast as is installing also on my PS4 by far i get the fastest speeds downloading and installing its amazing. And i love how on PS4 you can download more then 1 thing at a time like with torrents etc its great. Its like the other day i deleted forza and ryse and then when re-installing them from disk it was TERRIBLE! i googled it and found i was not the only one facing this. Apparently what's happening is even if you have the disk for some reason the X1 is downloading the digital version and then installing it! hence why it takes so long! so following their advice i disconnected the X1 from my router Ethernet and made sure i deleted the network settings to ensure it doesn't just connect wireless and then sure enough i could now hear the disk whirling and it installed allot faster but again the updates from the internet took ages to download and then install. Its some thing they need to improve on and i am sure they will! Microsoft has been great with the updates etc. I just wish i could pre download the day one patch! i am on a 10mb connection here and so it will take a while on launch day! shame i cant pre download the patch so on launch day i can just install my disk version of MCC and bam! At least a good thing is for people like me who bought it physical we will be able to just put the disk in and start playing through the single players of the halo games while the patch for multi player downloads! thing is i know installing the disk will still take ages sigh! That's another thing i LOVE about PS4, the way most games allow you to start playing very quickly! and man the P4 is monstrous when it comes to installs! it just flies through it! anyhow i cant wait till launch day i am so looking forward to playing through all the halo games one after the other at 1080p 60fps! so its doesn't bother me about the patch as long as i can play single player which they said you could!
Your novel needs a protagonist.
I hear ya.. But I was referring to the game actually installing to hard drive from disc. If I'd download it hell it'll be downloading for probably 2 days.
@randomguy35 yeah? i am getting it on disk too but like i said above disk installs take hella long for me! if it installs in 1 hour i will be pretty happy! :) because then we can just play the single player which is what i was planning anyway! i have a epic marathon planned and i am getting rid of my 2 kids and the wife thanks to my mother in law lol @Naga Go away! dont have time for people who comment without anything of use to say!
Damn. I wonder if we will get early reviews like with FH2?
it's the same games as before not sure why new reviews would be needed?
There should be some new reviews, there's a decent amount of new story content, a single player leaderboard system, a new ranking system, a universal control method.New audio. A new UI. Some of the maps will be foreign to people who only played on consoles. And people need to know about how it performs. It really isn't just halo 1-4 thrown in a disk. They made some significant improvements, tweaks, and changes that people should know about before they buy.
Dude you are kidding right? The games now render at 1080p and run 60fps that alone is a massive difference not to just the visuals but to the game play experience as well. And i think allot of people would like to know if the X1 versions are any good also if they run well and also what the multi players and co op is like etc it defo needs to be reviewed again! Dont forget we have games included in this collection which came out on the O.G Xbox and so are over 10 years old! allot of players maybe didn't even play these games!
Holy Shit, that's huge, but it is 4 complete games... 5 once you figure the assets for halo2 and halo 2A. I'm glad I don't have a data cap or slow connection, but MS needs to figure out a solution for those who do.
I do.. But still not sweating it.. My ISP wants more then I can justify for top tier packages... On a 20/10 line with a 150gb cap.. Tho November will end up being a high bandwidth month lol.. That reason plus other games will likely make me wait for December to grab this one Between forza and destiny, my Xbox used 109gb in sept. Lol..
maybe they should have allowed each of the games to be downloadable and playable individually to help. I'm tired of companies assuming that everyone can get really fast internet with no caps and no throttling
Got Damn!!!! 65GB's? with updates this will hit 70GB's
Here comes Master Chief to rescue the X1 :)
He's got a hell of a job to do going by the September NPD numbers.
My 3TB external has been waiting for this Fall season rush. SSOD & Cod:AW are preloaded and ready to rock ...and now MCC will be joining. 65gb!? Good lawd that's a lot of content! I think I will be set on games until next year.
My 4 TB external is up to the task.
