I'd like to know what ratio the file size is between game files & sound files?

From what I've seen of gameplay 10.27gb seems a huge amount.

7maps. Many betas are 4-8 gb with one or 2

7 maps isn't all that bad I thought it was 4 for some reason. I still think 10.3gb is huge from what I've seen. The texture resolution & geometry is still well below what I would consider coming from something that size.

Oh, because you're totally able to tell the amount of tris every model (and the amount of models) has as well as the texture resolution from some compressed footage on the internet? Makes sense. I suppose you also know how many lines of code there are (not that it would take up much space) as well as every single audio file that is in the build?

It takes about 5 days to download this with my current speed.

Well it's a 3 week beta and the beta will probably download in the background of your Halo Channel.

I'm worried about the download/install time. But I am very excited.

Considering the Master Chief Collection had that huge 15gb day one update, this seems like nothing.

Wasnt it around 20GB? I remember downloading a size like that. Anyway 10 GB are ok. Beta will be a nice christmas gift
