Finder's games database tracking has picked up on the hefty weigh in for Halo 5: Guardians.
Far out, that top 10 list of install sizes is epic! You could only fit the first 7 in and then you would be spent on the standard drive. Stupid way to play console games these installs!!!
Wow. I've deleted five of those games from my hard drive already - mostly because I'm too cheap to shell out for an external hard drive.
'Eigth Biggest Ever!' It's fine to inform us of what the final install size will be, but silly to equate it with quality. I mean of course Halo 5 will likely be great but not because of size. I've played loads of big games that are terrible and medium file sized games that are great. I would hate to see the lower quality end of the blogosphere start doing this.
@mrpumblechook I think its eight biggest install size ever, not eighth best game ever. I don't think the list is a statement of quality. Some of the best games are indies and they are a handful of MBs
@Mr PumbleChook "but silly to equate it with quality." Where in the article did they do that?.
Looks like Im finally deleting Halo MCC to make way for Halo 5 with room to spare after its deleted.
@ ShinMaster "we've been tracking and updating a complete list of all install sizes for the Xbox One with the goal of providing a handy resource for those trying to make the most of the Xbox One’s primitive 500GB hard drive." Would be a bit strange to see Playstation exclusives on a list of Xbox One games to be fair.
You do know a way you can install unlimited games in your HD, right?
I did read something about an eighth Harry Potter book now that you mention it. Most of the spells in those books don't actually work though.
@Volkama Silly boy...just remove old games and install new one, I have been using this secret move forever now, never got to worry about HD space. Consider yourself educated.
For some strange reason, I think advertising the install size of a game is some sort of gimmick. I guess it's easier for people to go by the notion "bigger is always better."
There is an unwritten law in computing that states that no matter how much the capacity of your resources, users will always find a way to fill them. Actually users should practice what is called "good house keeping" but that is easier said than done. Still I have to ask the question here. Why do you need all those games available at once since it is easier to have probably 3 to 5 games immediately available with a finished game being deleted and replaced with a new game. If you have a digitally downloaded game or the physical media it is not that difficult and time consuming to reinstall or are some gamers the type that must play multiple games per day.
Really? How the hell are Call of Duty and NBA 2K16 on that list?
Got to be the cutscenes in CoD. Not sure about NBA - all three of them are up there on the install sizes list
Lol, it wont budge my 4TB
Yeah I bought a 5TB a while back, I have gone all digital this gen and loving it.
That ain't so bad.
I'm So Glad I Got My 5 tb's now... These games r freakin huuuuuuge!
Makes me happy I bought a 1tb external, I'm set.
That will fill up a lot quicker than you think. You should have went at least 2tb since its external.
1tb external + another 1tb/500gb internal is just fine. 2tb of total storage will last me. Average retail aaa is about 35gb, I can fit over 30 of them plus multiple indies, that's enough
2TB external on deck. More fiyah! For 2016 games.
Of that top ten, DA inquisition is the only one I'm into. thank goodness for my puny 500mb.
Damn 500mb... lol. Poor hd
It's about the same size as the (sp) Wolfenstein The New Order. It's pretty crazy out of 500gb you only get 362gb to use of your HDD.
Bought a 3 tb hard drive and it was the wisest decision ever. And because of USB 3.0 it downloads even faster. I've only used 17% with about 15 games
Will you need to swap floppy discs?
I have five of those games.
External HDD are cheap. 140 for a 4 Terabyte drive. All this whining, at least I don't have to take the hard drive out of my console whenever I want expansion unlike the ps4 experience!
The external HD looks great next to your power brick I am sure.
2TB on both X1's, bring it on! That said, it will take 2-3 days to install, ouch!
Cant wait for Halo 5 to come out the multiplayer is going to change shooters again just like Halo 2 did back in 2004.As far as space get a external HDD.I got a 5TB for $120 so i'm good for the rest of this gen
Haha I must admit I used to be pretty miffed about the PS3 installation at the time I brought one in 2010, now I suffer Xbox One installs seemingly endlessly. Played the Forza 6 demo and loved it, now waiting along time for my digital purchase to sort itself out. Reckon I'll snap up a 2tb external soon as my storage is pretty much thrashed.
Its amazing how big these games are. I have a 1tb in my ps4 and I had to delete stuff for the first time for MGSV. Sony needs to allow external HDDs. Being able to swap the internal is a great feature but that fills up eventually. External like the Xbox would be very welcome.
I'm a noob when it comes to the x1. I just got the forza special edition system with halo cheif collection. Took me combined to install both games literally a whole day, is that normal????. Zombie jesus it takes forever? ???
thats not too big. my 2tb drive will eat it up.
I must be the only person with decent install times. It could be faster but it's tolerable. Average install time for me has been 1.5 hours. Maybe the ready to start made me lose track of time idk. I don't remember waiting long for madden to install. Played the opening, did some training courses, play an offline game and next thing I know it was complete.
