I don't know what to say at this point, but well it has finally happened. Call of Duty Modern Warfare file size exceeds more than 200 GB on PC. This isn't good news for those who are using 256 GB of SSD for Games.
This shouldn’t be allowed it’s ridiculously laughable
I agree. Idk how this can be allowed on any platform. It is completely ridiculous.
Agreed most my games are around 40gb or so ghost of tsushima, trails of cold steel, death stranding then you got call of duty with over 200gb such lazy developers, how is a game patch the same size as entire other 80hr long games?
This is so lazy. I don't see how.it.can.be allowed either. Just stop releasing updates weekly if that's what it takes and fix it
@BayArea I refuse to make excuses for this to be ok. No other game, not even the insanely long running GTA with its online is this large
Maybe future physical media games should come on a cartridge based on an NVMe SSD.
Or certain developers should learn how to better compress their data. This is ridiculous!
@Asonmetri You want games to cost roughly $150?
Ps4 game slightly went down with the new patch 196 to 189
Waiting for the “OMG they’re removing content” idiots to be appear lol.
So can you even get that on the base model 500gb consoles as that is ridiculous free to play as you need a new hard drive to install it all 😂😂😂
I have a base 500gb PS4 and I never thought I'd never need a hard drive as I never buy digital and I delete install data for games I complete. Turns out this game proved me wrong 😆
On my regular xbone it’s 100gigs. So it actually went down overall with the update. Still a lot, but manageable. If it’s more on PC-I can understand why. Plus it’s also expected that PC player’s HDD are larger than consoles.
No way is it only 100GB except if maybe you only have Warzone. Might want to double check you're reading that number correctly or that you actually have the full game. Or that you aren't rounding down insanely from 185GB or something.
I have the full game sir/ma’am. I was at 104 gigs, now it’s 100. Activision promised the file size would go down. It did (by a whopping 4 gigs!). Not sure if the game knows that my system is crap and cannot handle 4K graphics, so therefore we’re not installed. But that’s my size for the full thing.
LOL guys stop complaining get used to it for next gen....
I remember when Xbox 360 first launched, they limited all arcade games to 150 mb max. I think it's time to restrict bandwidth again allocation again so it pushes devs to actually compress properly. During the 360 era it was common to see most games even on PC less then 10 gb total. All thanks to the limited space on the 360 discs they always just ported that version to other platforms. Even the biggest PS3 games were 25 gb.
Or have an option to expand our memory rather than punish everyone with restrictions?
You can already do this on PS4. However, even with 2TB of space, games still eat up at least 50 gb each and that is asking for the companies to limit your space increase to only what the company releases. Sony has a history of making and selling their own proprietary storage devices so you are forced to go through them. Luckily, they didn't do it for the PS4. But the PS5 is another story.
@Rachel_Alucard Live Arcade games were limited to 50MB, not 150MB, it was done so that they could guarantee that every Live Arcade game would fit on the 64MB memory card that they sold if people only bought the base 360 and didn't buy the hard drive. But ye, total agree, the size of the games these days is getting ridiculous.
I know for a fact I was downloading 100+ mb games like SOTN not even a year after launch.
Your right, the size of Arcade games were eventually allowed to be up to 150MB, but for the first year and a half (or so) it was limited to 50MB. 360 was released in 2005, the limit increase was in March 2007. https://www.gamesindustry.b...
wow, that is insane. Wecll glad i deleted it after i got the plat for the campain as i dont do multiplay.
Happy for you.
70% of it, cosmetic shite you may never even consider purchasing.
Love how all these geniuses think it's because the developers are lazy haha.
This is absolutely ridicolous
Not even Star Citizen is that big.
