As is the fascination of recent times or those cautious about their data caps, Forza Motorsport 6's install size has been revealed.
Hopefully it goes gold well before the 10th.
Wow that's more than Forza Horizon 2 and it should be with the improved graphics, night and rain added I'm ready
44gb....that is huge but not surprising since it has 450 cars, all built from the grounds up, weather, 24 cars on track and a whole slew of other improvements. But with external HDD, it is a non-issue regardless of size.
Yea its up there in size. So glad I recently hooked up a 3TB to my XO. Went from 96% full to 11%. Bring on Forza, my xbox is ready :P
@ Sureshot I want that feature in my Ps4 sooo bad :( its soo cool,I have like 2 2TB external HDD laying in my bedroom, Im waiting Black friday to get a Xbox one :) On topic: on really big install Size, but with all the content in it that normal.
Not built from the ground up for this game no. Built ever since Forza Motorsport 5 and other cars from Horizon 2 aswell ported.
So? If it ain't broke right?
Well, this game as double to amount of cars Forza 2 launched with... So that's 200+ cars built specifically for this game, and another 200+ that were previously built specifically for the current gen Forza engine... So it's nice to know they can amass this massive amount of content without recycling any assets from previous generations...
all cars are premium cars built this gen forza which means it is consistent graphically not like gran turismo where 200 cars were built for the ps3 gen and then the rest were ps2 models to bolster their car count- now thats bad.
isn't 40gb standard?
Rookie Do you have a link to where it says built from ground up all the way? I think it's pretty safe that they may use some stuff from forza 5. It's kind of insane if any in to expect the excellent turn 10 to build everything from ground up for every game. I think all next Gen sequels use some assets from its past entries. On topic I don't think we can look too much into file size, reason being some developers compress their files while other many reasons don't. Sometimes there isn't enough time left for themto do so Other times they don't see the need since there is enough space on the disk
Wow, I am surprise you didn't go straight to the personnel attack like what you were doing previously. What a 180 so to speak. I only said that because I am bias and a fanboy like you were accusing me of being in all those previous threads when you were trashing me and calling and attacking every other xbox gamers with hate and accusations. Now, feel better now? SARCASM ;P OT: hey, at least they are not using X360 games assets. So that is building from the grounds up on XB1 regardless if some cars were from FM5.
rookie person attack seriously. and you act as if I am the only one, maybe you should read some replies if you are actually a neutral gamer than act like one without playing any favorites I have noticed you comments for past month or so before finally replying to you. please go to the article about ps4 selling because of hype and read stray's comments and tell me if was really wrong I asked you simply for a link and I didn't accuse turn 10 of using xbox360 assets. I even said it's u fair for us to expect turn 10 to make every ga,e from ground up I guess being here on this site for over 7 years I should have kept quite and just pree disagree like others do to your comments. but instead I actually asked you what was going on because your comments show that you favor Xbox over ps4. and that's not wrong you can have your favorite console without hating on another console
Yeah, that's true. I'm glad I upgraded to a 4TB external HDD right after I bought my XB1. I still have over 3.2TB left. I think I can handle Forza 6. Even if I run out of storage (which won't happen anytime soon), I can always stick another 4TB on to it.
2 features a lot of ps4 fans soon ability to view movies and stuff from extrenal hard drive and support for extra hard drives to save games and stuff
Agreed. Especially if you consider that was a huge leg up from last gen where only PD had Bluray and could crank out massive car counts. Turn 10 should be able to really bring up the car count next few forza games because of this.
lol @ built from the ground up. Are you a gamer or a salesman?
For reference, FM5 was 35gb. Insane what they are doing with the extra 10 gigs. This game looks fantastic.
Forza 5 was over 40gb and many ppl thought with 50% more cars and weather ect that forza 6 would be 50-60gb, some thought it would be 70. Some ppl thought it would be shipped w/2 disks like Castlevania, Mass Effect 2/3 & many other games were on 360 bc 360 didn't have blu-ray. Quite surprising it's less than 4gb bigger than forza 5, maybe the prebaked lighting helps? Look forza5 - 40.54gb https://store.xbox.com/en-U...
Forza Motorsport 6 will be fantastic. Absolutely looking very forward to it. Forza 6 is loaded, Project Cars was only 19gigs.
Or like you know forza 3 and 4...
Oh right on. I just read some new site that said 35 gigs. Clearly a bit off. Quite impressive, none the less.
Why would prebaked lighting help with file size? Having dynamic lighting would reduce file size because the engine would dictate how surfaces looked; they wouldn't need to have a different texture for each time of day... Prebaked lighting increases the file size. If you're gonna throw shots, at least know what you're aiming at.
video and sound take up the most space, followed my textures. code, which would be used for lighting, takes up by far the least amount of space. 90% or more of the new HDD requirements will be the added cars, tracks, engine sounds, and music.
@ mhunterjr I meant maybe the prebaked lighting in Forza 5 helps to increase the file size and that is 1 reason why 5 & 6 are so close in size. I knew that Forza 5 was prebaked and i just assumed that Forza 6 had dynamic lighting. It appears that Forza 6 does indeed have prebaked lighting as well, so nvm. I just assumed that 2 years into the new gen that a AAA exclusive would have dynamic lighting. U misunderstood.
Wow, that way bigger GB than other Forza Games.
6GB under the so called average that has been announced for sometime . How is this news and even shocking .
The average? There have been a few that hit 50 without DLC but not many... I would say 50 is far from the average. I would say most games are hitting in the mid 30GB into low 40's... and driving game wise: Drive Club was sub 30GB at launch F1 2015 install size 19.3GB on PS4 Project Cars on PS4 was 17.8GB at launch. Need for Speed Rivals was around 15GB Forza 5 was 31.76GB Forza Horizon 2 was 35.84 GB So as a racer its the largest file size this generation has seen. So yeah....its news.
File size means very little due to compression, some games put more effort into compression than others. Do u really think that P Cars is a 19gb game without compression? The new MGSV is 25.1gb on PS4 and xbone, yet MGS4 on PS3 from 2008 is 26.6gb. I highly doubt MGS4 is bigger than MGSV PP on next-gen. Compression.
Not that its shocking but for those digital only gamers with data caps. Its very important to know these things. It could be 6gb game, I still want to know if I can fit it in to the monthly cap.
Then why are ppl happy forza 6 is 4gb larger than forza 5? Larger file size doesn't necessarily mean a more packed game, but i tend to look at it as a good sign anyway.
Ugh, now i will have to wait for the game to install -_- Hopefully, i will find something to do while it is installing when it releases.
Soon 1TB won't be enough.
The best racing game in the world!
And out of this world
Of this world of course :)
Lets celebrate...with some pics from my forza gallery. http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... http://forzamotorsport.net/... The many varied places forza takes us eh? :)
44.37GB 44.37GB 44.37GB ... My oh my, FOURTY-FOUR GIGABYTES...?! And some people here are trying to justify that by saying the Forza series finally has rain and night races??? GT5 had that and 1080p/60fps graphics 5 years ago, and its install size (some 10 GB, optional) was laughed at, actually all xbox owners were calling the PS3 the "installstation 3" because a lot of third party games needed a partial installation of data on the HDD, and now all of a sudden more than 44 GB install is deemed perfectly fine by those very same xbox fans? LOL Gotta love the hypocrisy here.
Couldn't care If it was 100gigs, it's the best racing franchise alive today and I'm sure all forza fans will think the same. Now take your bitterness out of here and go play driveclub or something. Take some 1080p screenshots of raindrops because wow raindrops are unbelievable in that game.
Awesome!! Well said
Yep Driveclub is gorgeous and the weather is incredible. Driveclub is a different game now then when it released, entirely different. The original review scores mean nothing, DC is phenomenal atm hence why it is outselling forza by a lot. Don't dog Driveclub bc you are mad at that guy, Driveclub is legit.
@iamtyler Calm down dude I bought the game for two days to try it myself and I agree with the metacritic scores. One of the worst racers I have played in years and years, the way you guys defend it just says alot about your standards to be honest. Outselling forza lmao got proof? Everyone I know bought forza digitally because we knew what we were getting. And if sales matter then forza 5 is better than bloodborne lmao what stupid logic
Well a lot of things happened in 2010, but guess what grandma it is 2015 things have changed so quit pretending you are proving a point calling people complaining 5 years ago hypocrits. Also as an owner of a ps3 that thing was the install station because buying a 2+ year old game took forever to update and the thing updated like every damn day.
eurogamer /articles/digitalfoundry-gran- turismo-5-tech-analysis "The game still renders at native 720p with 4x multi-sampling anti-aliasing (MSAA) when your XMB is set to 720p mode, while the resolution shifts to 1280x1080 with 2x quincunx (QAA) when the 1080p mode is engaged. So we're not seeing anything like native 1080p resolution here, but you are getting a 50 per cent increase in the number of pixels rendered." "However, up against the 4x MSAA of the 720p mode, the combination of the upscaling from 1280 to 1920 pixels in width, along with the use of quincunx anti-aliasing, does serve to make textures look a touch more blurred." eurogamer /articles/digitalfoundry-2014- vs-gran-turismo-6 "By the time GT5 finally reached store shelves in winter 2010 we found it to be an incredibly ambitious title that also fell short in a few key areas. Its large selection of vehicles were marred by the inclusion of warmed over PS2-era car models, while its menu system made getting into a race a challenge in its own right." "From a technology standpoint, Polyphony Digital has always aimed high with support for 1080p resolutions and high frame-rates, but fell short of their 60 frames per second objective as a result. 25 patches later, Gran Turismo 5 still remains perhaps the most ambitious title in the series' history, but there was always a sense that the game never fully delivered on the vision Kazunori Yamauchi set out to achieve on PlayStation 3" "Unfortunately, the 60fps target is regularly missed, resulting in screen-tear and image judder far more often than we'd like." Dont choke on it.
@IamTylerDurden1 Wow, you aint even trying to hide your trolling today. one guy is moaning about the file size of FM6...when we he is a KNOWN PS troll, who doesnt even own an xbox..and then you...another troll show up in an xbox thread to defend him. "DC is phenomenal atm hence why it is outselling forza by a lot. " Really? I could have sworn it had something to do with the fact that its the only exclusive racer on the console with the larger install base. But clearly you know better than the rest of us and al those people that reviewed DC. You harp on about how they fixed its online component that means nothing in comparison to a game that has a richer online suite. Nice try though. why dont you just stick to PS threads. Its like you guys get a hard on, for anything xbox, related.
cant wait for this to get released, bought forza 5 game of the year edition for a mere £15 for the digital download from ebay and i was pretty impressed considering it was a launch game for the xbox one. hopefully come launch day of forza 6 i will own the limited edition forza 6 xbox one along with forza 6 :)
got a 2 terabyte external, no biggie
All I have to say it better be better than forza 5 because forza 5 wasn't that good I have to forza 4 for the 360 was better than forza 5
